Few Use New Yellowstone Bus Service

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The new bus service that connects Jackson, Wyo., with Yellowstone and other gateway cities hasn’t been getting much use so far this summer.

The transportation cooperative Linx received a $145,000 grant from the Wyoming Department of Transportation this year to help subsidize the service, and Linx partnered with Salt Lake Express to run the buses. Tickets are $25 to get to Yellowstone from Jackson.

Linx sales manager Collette Rinehart tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide only four or five people a week have been riding the route. Rick Howe is director of visitor services at the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. Howe says the system could still catch on, especially for foreign visitors. The current grant will allow buses to run through September. Funding after that isn’t guaranteed.
