The Linx transportation cooperative has announced it will inaugurate a Wind River Connection of the regional Linx service, known as the “Purple Line,” which will run between Riverton and Jackson three times each week beginning June 4th. The Wind River Transportation Authority, WRTA, joined the four-state cooperative this year, closing a gap in service from Fremont County into the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park area. The Purple Line will start in Riverton with stops at the Wind River Casino, The NOLS Noble in Lander, Rocky Mountain Hall at Fort Washakie, Lamb Park in Dubois, Moran Junction, the Moose Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park, the Jackson Hole Airport and terminate in the town of Jackson. The bus returns to Riverton following the same schedule in reverse 4 ½ hours later. Fares for the Purple Line are $25 per leg: one leg between Riverton and Dubois, a second leg between Dubois and Jackson. A round trip between Riverton and Jackson would cost $100.
