Presently, the 60 Route has a lengthy headway of 85 minutes. LeeTran agrees that the 60 Route is underutilized because the time between trips is so long. Its solution is to do away with the 60 Route and replace it with microtransit. However, the Pulse Plan offers a much different plan by reconfiguring the 60 Route to make it into a sixty-minute headway route. (See below:)
The 260 plays a vital role in providing an express route from Lehigh Acres to South Lee County. The 260 Bus is able to shuttle passengers from both the Hilton Garden Inn on Alico Road to northbound and southbound 240 Buses every hour they arrive at Drews Community Center. The following map shows how this crucial 260 Route can offer this express service:
Of course, not only from E 12th St. to Lover's Key, but also to Creekside Naples and back to Lehigh can these express routes greatly diminish travel times. Also, FGCU gets the benefit of a LeeTran bus being available for students every half-hour instead of every 85 minutes as is the case now.
