Catching the Transit System Timely

May 26, 2006 -- 7:00 PM CDT

JONESBORO, AR -- Officials at Jonesboro Economical Transit System (J.E.T.S.) want passengers to understand the way the bus routes run.

"As a direct result of their cooperation and participation, we are going to be better able to serve them in a very timely fashion," said Major Watts, Bus Pilot.

J.E.T.S. has 3 basic bus routes, but the big question is, when will the buses make their stops?

"What the public can expect...and that is not every 20 minutes, a bus at a location, but they can expect within two or three minutes, to have a bus be at a bus stop," said Watts.

That means, if someone is waiting at a particular stop and just missed the bus, it won't be back at that stop for another two hours.  There are also several sources to find when and where the buses will make their runs.

"I actually went to the Kum and Go there on North Church Street and got a schedule of the stops that all of the buses have," said Anna Jones, bus passenger.

Passengers can also go to www.ridejets.com for information on routes and times.

Bottom line, if you want to save time, don't just hang out at any bus stop and expect to be picked up quickly.  Do a little research as to what bus line you'd like to travel.
