Access to public transportation in Jackson County is continuing to grow now that the Jackson County Mass Transit District has received new buses. A federal grant was used for funding and the cost for a one-way ride is $2 or $1 for seniors and students. The new buses call for the addition of drivers and more routes. These added vehicles will allow the transportation service to have a spare on standby in case a bus breaks down. Mass Transit is also adding door to door pickups as one of its new services.
