JACKSON, Wyo. —An on-demand Microtransit system managed through a rider reservation app will service East Jackson beginning Nov. 27, 2021.
In September, the START Board selected the firm Downtowner, LLC as its preferred vendor for its new Microtransit service.
Microtranist aims to solve two aspects; to operate fixed routes more efficiently and better serve the dispersed areas of East Jackson.
The service will provide fare-free, on-demand transportation using smaller vehicles between the western boundary of Karns Meadow and the Town’s eastern limits.
“Microtransit service will replace the circulator routes in East Jackson, taking numerous large vehicles off small, neighborhood streets, and implementing a key element of START’s broader Route Plan,” wrote Community Engagement Specialist Susan Scaralata in a September email.
Riders will be able to schedule service through an app from their location to any destination in East Jackson including to START’s transit hub for connection to commuter and local and Teton Village routes.
