"With A Hand on the Pulse of Lee County!"

Route 250

  The recent TDP proposed breaking up the 250 Route, which has two buses providing transit between the Airport and Summerlin Square.  Instead Tindale plans to run four buses, instead of two,  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 saves half a million in taxpayer dollars.


  The 250 route is essentially the same with the Pulse Plan 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.  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 every other hour, allowing the 250 driver to take a 19-minute break at the Hilton Alico Hotel.  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.
    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!
