START Bus continues to recruit drivers to fill out the core service schedule for the winter season and, as a result, there will be no late night Town Shuttle routes on New Year’s Eve this year. The Jackson Police Department would like to remind everyone to drive safely this holiday season. For those who will be drinking, please plan ahead to have a sober ride home. Law enforcement partners will be out in full force to keep impaired drivers off the roadways.

Vehicles parked on town streets or in town parking lots after 2:00am will be ticketed and may be towed. If you are planning on going out for the evening, the Town of Jackson encourages you to plan for the possibility of parking. Overnight parking is permitted in the parking structure located at Milward Street and Simpson Ave. Vehicles are allowed to park in the garage for up to 48 hours.

Everyone at START wishes you a very safe, happy and multimodal holiday season!
