START Bus adds run, improves winter schedule

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – START Bus will add an additional bus from Teton Valley, Idaho starting November 26. The addition of this fourth regular commuter route is possible due to a 50% funding grant from the State of Idaho and additional general funds committed by the Town of Jackson and Teton County.

START will also make a few additional changes to the Teton Valley times based on survey results from last spring.

  • Departure times from Driggs: 5:40am, 6:25am, 7:00am, 7:40am
  • Departure times from Jackson: 3:45pm, 5:05pm, 6:00pm, 7:30pm

“This additional commuter route is very important to our community and provides an opportunity for those employees in the valley working 7am to 7pm to now be able to ride the bus to and from work in the valley,” Transit Director Darren Brugmann commented.

START also announced the winter season will begin November 24. There will be no changes to the Teton Village routes (20, 22, 24, and 26), Star Valley route (40), or Town Shuttle route (1 & 2) from last year’s winter schedule.

“We are very excited about our 2018-19 Winter START Bus season and we hope to carry even more passengers than our record breaking season last year,” Brugmann said.

START Bus also wants patrons to know that they are offering free rides for the first week of the winter season, November 24 through December 1.

The major changes riders will see moving from the fall schedule to the winter schedule is additional routes and times to Teton Village (20, 22, 24, and 26). Also riders can expect to have later service hours on Town Shuttle routes (1 & 2).

START Bus encourages riders to utilize the ‘realtime’ bus map and download the Route Shout application.
