JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro Economical Transportation wants to give a lift to Region 8 veterans.

On Wednesday, Nov. 11, JET will offer free rides on all of its fixed route buses to all veterans and active military personnel.

To obtain the free service, riders will need to show their military ID or DD214 card when they board a bus.

"JET and its employees salute our nation's veterans and thank them for their service," Transit Director Steve Ewart said. "We recognize the important role public transportation plays in getting veterans to work, to medical facilities and educational institutions. JET is proud to honor them during his important holiday."

Ewart added JET has several openings for part-time drivers who have a current CDL with passenger endorsement. He encourages veterans with this credential and are seeking part-time employment to contact his office at (870) 935-5387.
