|25 March 2013 - New Jackson Hole Route
As part of our new partnership with Linx, we are starting a new summer
fixed route beginning June 4th between the Riverton/Lander area and
Jackson's Hole. The new route will run Wed/Fri/Sun, and will take
passengers to Jackson in the morning, and back in the afternoon. Once
there, people can enjoy a few hours of shopping/touring in Jackson, or they
can catch one of the other Linx routes to continue up into Yellowstone Park.
We hope that this new route will help visitors and residents of Fremont
county more easily enjoy the natural beauty of the park, as well as opening
up our attractions to weekend visitors from the Jackson area.

With the increased fuel prices across the nation, WRTA is forced to raise
the cost of some of our less-used shuttle services in order to meet
expenses. Rest assured that the fixed route remains at $1/ride (or $25 for a
monthly pass), and Lander and Casper prices will also remain the same,
among others. For a full list of the new prices, please visit our Shuttle Prices
page. Thank you!
The last day of Summer service will be August 31st. Our regular Fall
Schedule will resume September 4th (no service on Sept 3rd due to Labor
Day). Thank you all for your support during our trial with the expanded
Summer service, and we hope to see you all next summer!

two months, and we'd like to find out how we can do a better job of serving
you! Please let us know on the comment page, give us a call at 856-7118, or

We will be starting our new summer schedule next week!
We've added some additional routes, so that we will be running between
Riverton, Lander, Ft Washakie, and Ethete four times per day. The new route
also includes many more stops in Riverton, to make commuting and
