Jefferson Lines resuming service to JamestownJAMESTOWN, N.D. - Jefferson Lines buses will soon make scheduled stops again in Jamestown.
The City Council has approved a request to use a downtown street as a temporary bus stop and a nearby shelter for Jefferson Lines passengers.
“This is a temporary solution with just a place to pull over and have people get on or off,” said Bob Musil, representative for the bus line. “We are seeking a long-term solution and we ask the city’s help in finding a permanent solution.”
The bus will stop on First Avenue West near Babb’s Coffee House. Passengers needing shelter can use the shelter near the railroad tracks about half a block north of Babb’s.
The stop will not offer tickets or have restroom space.
“We’re moving away from the agency concept for bus stops,” Musil said. “This is the type of stop we are utilizing more now.”
Passengers could purchase tickets online and board the bus at the stop or depart the bus at the location. Jefferson Lines operates two buses eastbound and westbound through Jamestown each day.
Musil didn’t specify when the buses will begin making stops in Jamestown.
