JACKSON HOLE, WYO –START (Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit) set some fairly lofty goals as far back as 2006. The public transportation system continues to make progress toward removing single-occupancy vehicle trips from our roads, reducing overall emissions in the valley, and saving fuel.
And the fleet is modernizing as well. The START Board has also made a commitment to reducing emissions from the transportation sector and improving air quality in Teton County, through the introduction of zero emission electric buses to the START bus fleet. Hybrid buses are also a tool that has been utilized by START in support of the Jackson/Teton County Comprehensive Plan Common Value-Ecosystem Stewardship, sharing the vision to preserve and protect the area’s ecosystem.
There is still work to be done and much to yet accomplish.
Goals stated in the Integrated Transportation Plan (ITP) goal to transition the START bus fleet to 40% electric by 2022. START leaders also announced they will pursue all forms of alternative fuels where practical, including the use of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles.
