The recent TDP has proposed a two-bus route to service from the Bell Tower to Miromar Outlets. This is a disastrous idea which will cost a half-million dollars and offer only 70-minute headways for passengers. This proposal is worse than the service LeeTran presently provides, especially with regard to east-west travel between the Airport and Summerlin Square! Much better is the 60-minute headway solution provided by the Pulse Plan which achieves "clockface," and which costs $500,000 less than the proposed plan.
The 250 route is essentially the same as it was before, except that the trip to Sanibel Outlets has been removed and given to the 255 Route. Also, a three-minute diversion to the Hilton Alico Hotel on the eastern side of the route has been added to the route. Additionally, the headway of the route has been shortened from 68 minutes to 60 minutes to allow for regular meets at the Bell Tower. Recovery time for the 250 driver has been considered by having the 715 route take over the trip to the Airport once every three trips to allow the 250 driver a 16-minute break at the Hilton Alico Hotel. On the east side of the route, the 250 Route meets with the 260 Route every hour (and the 715 Route every 180 minutes) at the Hilton Garden Hotel on Alico Road. At the Bell Tower, the 250 meets with the 140, the 240, and the 330 every hour. On the west side of the route, the 250 meets with the 130 Route every hour at FSW College and with the 400 and 255 Routes every time it comes into Summerlin Square.
Below is the schedule for the 250 Bus:
The great thing about the Pulse Plan's 250 Route is that it is synchronous with so many other routes: the 715, the 130, the 140, the 180, the 240-600, the 255, the 260, the 330 and the 400. That's nine different routes with which the 250 has regular meets throughout the entire day! This is the power of synchronization at work!
