Jackson Hole’s START Bus service is on track to provide one million rides for the first time in a single calendar year.
The service has seen record-breaking numbers almost every month in 2017. Nearly 880,000 rides have been taken through November.
“It’s really exciting to approach the million-rides mark, and we’re looking forward to continued growth and success,” said Darren Brugmann, START Director. “As we continue to grow, we are constantly looking for ways to enhance service. We plan to continue assessing routes to make them better for riders and more cost-effective for the community.”
Brugman said operational efficiency, the new START Bikes program, and an additional Teton Valley commuter line were credited for helping to enhance service.
