Upgrades are coming to JTRAN

Find out how JTRAN is stepping up Jackson’s bus service in 2023, from better bus routes to a fresh rider experience.

This effort stems from ConnectJXN: Transit Plan—a plan to make JTRAN bus service work better for you. During ConnectJXN, we asked community members what JTRAN bus improvements to focus on. The upcoming changes reflect these priorities, and now we’re moving to action.

What will the new bus routes look like?
