Feds Award $8,000,000 For START Facility

September 6, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
START Bus

$8-million in federal funds have been granted to the town of Jackson for the completion of Phase 1 of the START Bus transit facility planned adjacent Karns Meadow in Jackson.  That money will be used along with the voter-approved special purpose excise tax for a facility to store START’s transit fleet indoors, house a wash bay for the busses and provide offices for START administrators.  The Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (or TIGER) program is a discretionary grant program under the U.S. Department of Transportation that provides a unique opportunity for investment in transportation projects that achieve critical national objectives. The USDOT received 568 applications requesting over $9 billion for TIGER V grants this year, far exceeding the $474 million set aside for the project.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
