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


West Lake Shuttle

  The West Lake Shuttle is a service provided by Florida Gulf Coast University.  It makes sense to coordinate efforts and establish a partnership between the County and the University to service students traveling near Gulf Coast Town Center.  A scheduled interface between the University and LeeTran would require no change in the West Lake's present service.  The following would be the interface between the West Lake Shuttle's present service and the 260 Bus meeting near West Lake Village: 


  Having the West Lake Trolley meet with LeeTran outside the University would result in service every 30 minutes instead of every 85 minutes, (service at the top of the hour would service inside San Carlos Park and service at the bottom of the hour would service outside San Carlos Park.)  It would give LeeTran the precious minutes necessary to service other parts of San Carlos Park.  Not only that, but travel times would be greatly reduced both going to and coming from FGCU!


  The time saved on a round-trip between E 12th St in Lehigh Acres and FGCU, for example, is on average 292 minutes, or just shy of five hours!   One can also save over three hours on a simple round-trip to the Airport and back from FGCU!  Time saved -- and it's significant -- is why the Pulse Plan cannot afford to be ignored!
