Welcome to JATRAN Message

 

Welcome to JATRAN and the City of Jackson, Department of Planning & Development, Office of City Planning, Transit Services Division website!  It is our intent to continually update and improve this site to provide the best possible information to everyone who uses our system. Whether you ride JATRAN fixed route bus or JATRAN HandiLift to work or special events, or whether you are visiting the City of Jackson and plan to take public transportation to all the great destinations in our city, this website has been designed to help you get where you want to go.

Public transportation plays a vital role in the City of Jackson. That role will certainly grow in the future as our region continues to grow and expand. The future is getting brighter for JATRAN -with a regional transit study and five year short range transit plan underway which will lead the way to transform the transit system to a service that is fast, fun, friendly and frequent.  In addition, a strategic plan has been developed to guide JATRAN.

As an avid public transit supporter, I look to you to help us make JATRAN the best it can be. Feel free to contact me via telephone, email, fax or in person. My contact information is available by clicking here.

We will always need the support and ideas of our customers to help us operate the best possible system. Please browse through our website and use our web-based comment card to provide the City of Jackson, Department of Planning & Development, Office of City Planning, Transit Services Division with your ideas.  Remember...this is YOUR bus system!

JATRAN is the Driving Force of Jackson! I hope to see you on the bus and thank you for riding JATRAN.

 

Sincerely,


Christine F. Welch, PHR
Deputy Director of Transportation
