Broward County Transit Informative - Great Response To A Request!
BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA -- I'd just like to express my gratitude for the Broward County Transit system here in Broward County, FL.
With the rising cost of fuel a little while back, I began looking into public transportation. I utilized the county buses to get to and from my major destinations, and only used my personal vehicle to get to places that weren't served by any transit routes. I found it to be very relaxing not to have to drive everywhere, even when a bus was late here and there.
However, the biggest inconvenience was that the two nearest stops from my residence are about 3/4 of a mile away. I didn't really understand it, as I live very close to an intersection that serves as an exit onto the main road from many neighborhoods. I figured it would be very convenient to have a stop put there.
I e-mailed the city transit office with my concerns. I received a prompt reply that somebody would be out to survey the area shortly.
Now, only two weeks later, they have already begun implementing bus stops at not only the aforementioned intersection, but also between many other distant stops along the same route.
I am very satisfied that I can now catch the bus by walking just a few hundred feet.
Thank you Broward County Transit!
