Citizen input is essential to the success of a transportation planning process. Since the general public is both the user and the financier of JATRAN, it is important for the community to participate in identifying transportation issues and comment on potential alternatives.  Please join us at these meetings to help make JATRAN better!

The Transit Advisory Committee meetings are held once a month on the last Saturday at the Jackson City Hall in the City of Jackson Council Chambers, 200 South President Street, Jackson, Mississippi at 10:00 a.m.
