JEFFTRAN Route Adjustments (Press Release)
Date: February 3, 2023

Temporary Route Adjustment Timetables
Due to a driver shortage, the City of Jefferson is instituting adjustments to all six fixed-route bus routes.  The current six-route system will be adjusted into an alternating route system operating on the same roads and stopping at the same bus stops.  The busses will be on an 80-minute headway instead of the current 40-minute headway. 

The Green (High St. East) route and Gold (High St. West) route will alternate, forming one combined route.
The Black (Capitol Mall) route and Orange (Missouri Blvd.) route will alternate, forming one combined route.
The Blue (Southwest) route and Red (Business 50 East) route will alternate, forming one combined route.

A timetable of the adjusted system can be found on the JEFFTRAN website.
The adjusted routes will take effect on February 6th.
A presentation on the route adjustments will be provided at the Public Works and Planning Committee meeting on February 9th and at the Public Transit Advisory Committee Meeting February 10th:
