Tindale-Oliver recommended breaking up the 130 Route, but what is proposed in its place does not access important points, such as the Edison Mall or Boy Scout Drive. Tindale's timing of the route is also suspect with a headway of only 50 minutes.
The 130 accesses an important transit point in Pine Manor. The 130 Route can transfer passengers between itself and the 180 Route at Palm Drive and US 41. This enables Pine Manor passengers to have the ability to travel to the Airport or to South Fort Myers High School without having to go to the Bell Tower. Likewise, passengers from Page Park can access Iona and Fort Myers Beach also without having to the Bell Tower. We can see the power of connectivity in offering the passenger these opportunites to make timely transfers.
