JACKSON, Wyo. — The Jackson Driver Services office will be closed Thursdays and Fridays starting Aug. 19, so employees can travel to work at the Thayne Driver Services office, announced the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT).

The Thayne office is transitioning to offer more services beginning in January.

“Recent growth in the Star Valley region and an employee retirement in Jackson prompted us to look at ways to improve service in both locations,” said Driver Services program manager Misty Dobson. “This restructuring will provide quality customer service to both communities without adding costs for new facilities or positions.”

Starting in January, the Thayne office will transition to being open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with a break for lunch at noon. Currently, some employees from the Jackson location are traveling to Thayne twice a week to offer services.

The Jackson location will return to regular hours in January, says WYDOT.

“Members of the public interact with Driver Services more than any other WYDOT program,” said
WYDOT director Luke Reiner. “We are dedicated to excellence and always looking for ways to improve service while still being conscientious of our budget.”
