START Bus on Demand by Carl Pelletier published on 2021-11-18T00:13:41Z Listen in to this week's broadcast of "This is Our Town" as the interim START Bus Director, Bruce Abel, joins Del Ray on KJAX (93.5 FM) to talk about the new and exciting On Demand service which will be offered in East Jackson starting on November 27! START Bus On-Demand, START’s new, free, on-demand service launches November 27. This service will provide free, on-demand transportation using smaller vehicles between the western boundary of Karns Meadow and the Town’s eastern limits. Providing seamless public transport, 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 at Miller Park for connection to commuter and local and Teton Village routes. Skiers in East Jackson, be aware that rides to the Village will now be via an On-Demand car to transfer to a bus at Miller Park. START On Demand 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 to operate fixed routes more efficiently and provide better service in the dispersed areas of East Jackson. The contractor providing START On Demand, Downtowner LLC, provides similar service in Aspen and North Lake Tahoe and is currently recruiting drivers. The rider reservation app will be available to download in the coming weeks and riders can start booking and taking rides on November 27, 2021. Every Wednesday morning a representative from the Town of Jackson joins Del Ray on-air to talk about a variety of topics that help make Jackson a great place to live and work.
