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

Route 400
  The Fort Myers Beach Route is the second-most used route in the LeeTran system, after the 140 trunk line, with over a half-million rides a year.
  The 400 Route has always has problems with meeting in a timely way with another bus heading back into town or to the Sanibel Outlets, and often beach-goers are left stranded at Summerlin Square for over half an hour.  Through the Pulse Plan, the 400 Route has been designed so that every time it pulls into Summerlin Square, a 250 or 255 Bus is there waiting for it.  Also, it does not matter if there are two trolleys or three trolleys in operation, a bus heading back into town will always be waiting at Summerlin Square for those passengers.




  It used to be that the 400 Bus could always meet with the 650 Bus at Lover's Key.  However, this is not the case now where, because of LeeTran's changing the schedule of its 150 Bus in November 2018, buses meet there only 57% of the time.  


  During season, when the 400 Route is broken into the 410 and 490 Routes, the "more trips are better" policy that LeeTran has enacted to streamline the 490 operation is warranted because of the excessive volume of people being moved and also because it is more difficult to hold to a schedule at that time of the year.  Nevertheless, during normal operating times of the year, the Pulse Plan saves the customer more time and is actually the more efficient plan.
