START To Rent Parking Spaces

by Jackson Hole. Media

A private bus company is asking the Town of Jackson to rent them parking spaces in town.

A company called Salt Lake Express is used by local in-town hotels to transport passengers to and from hotels located mainly on Pearl Street and the Mountain Resort.  The service was previously operated by All-Trans for many years who has had a local presence. Late this fall, All-Trans abruptly ended this service and those hotels were able to find a service provider with Salt Lake Express.

But they say there is no place to park.

So the START bus board wants to rent them space at the recently constructed public transit facility. In their presentation to the Town Council, they say, “The thousands of passengers transported during the Winter Season by Salt Lake Express supplement the thousands of passengers START transports as well. START is over capacity during peak times and are greatly aided by the service provided by local hotels and Salt Lake Express. START would like to work with the local hotels in preparation for next Winter Season but want to aid with the parking dilemma this Winter Season. START has the parking capacity (outside) and electrical hook-up to accommodate Salt Lake Express needs this winter.”

The START bus would receive 1400.00 for the fee.

The Council will decide the matter at tonight’s meeting.
