[ARCHIVED] Teton Valley Commuter Buses Planning to Use Alternative Return Route


Teton Valley Commuter Buses Planning to Use Alternative Return Route

Jackson, Wyo. February 27, 2019 - Due to the closure of Teton Pass, the START Bus Teton Valley commuter buses will use an alternative route to return to Teton Valley tonight.   The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) is indicating that the estimated opening time of the pass is unknown.   The commuter buses will depart Jackson and go through the Snake River Canyon, Swan Valley and over Pine Creek Pass to access Teton Valley instead of driving over Teton Pass.

Four Teton Valley commuter buses are scheduled to depart Snow King at 3:45pm, 5:05pm, 5:30pm, and 6:00pm, respectively.   There will not be a 7:30pm Teton Valley commuter bus departure from Snow King this evening, instead there will be an earlier departure at 5:30pm.  Please plan accordingly. 

The Star Valley commuter runs are not currently impacted and will remain on schedule.  

Due to road conditions and traffic, Teton Village routes may be impacted today.     START Bus personnel are working diligently to keep the impacts as minimal as possible.  We appreciate everyone’s patience. 

START Bus recommends all commuter riders to keep an eye out on the upcoming weather and stay connected through WYDOT information and with START Bus through the Rider Alert feature on the home page.

Passengers can now easily sign up for START Rider Alerts. These alerts will immediately notify the rider if a bus stop is closed, if a road becomes closed, or a specific route is impacted. It's easy and only takes a minute to do.
