JACKSON HOLE, WYO – START Bus announced it will be offering limited services for Thursday, November 23.
On Thanksgiving Day, START Bus will not operate commuter services to Teton Valley, ID and Star Valley, WY. In addition, START will be limiting the town shuttle routes to hourly service, and will be suspending service in East Jackson during the Turkey Trot Race between 8:15-10:30am. Services to Teton Village will remain unchanged from normal operations.
The decision to adjust the bus schedule is based off of historical ridership data. “In studying the ridership numbers from previous years on Thanksgiving, START has made the decision to adjust the current schedule and offer reduced runs,” said Darren Brugmann, START Bus director. “It is our goal to continue to provide a necessary service to the community in a cost-effective manner.”
On Thanksgiving Day, town shuttle 1 will depart from the Deloney parking lot stop hourly between 6:05am and 8:05pm. Town shuttle 2 will depart from the Deloney parking lot stop hourly between 6:50pm and 7:50pm. Town shuttle 1, which normally departs on the :35, and town shuttle 2, which typically departs on the :20, will be suspended for the duration of Thanksgiving Day. Town shuttle 2 will service Rancher and Hansen and Pioneer Homestead in both directions.
