BIKES ON THE SKYWAY

Have your bike with you? No problem.  JTA allows you to bring your bike on the Skyway as space permits, at no cost.

Don't stress about traffic or parking

In keeping with JTA’s original people mover plan, convenient Park-n-Ride lots are located near the Jefferson and Kings Avenue stations enabling employees, residents and visitors to leave their vehicles on the periphery of the Downtown area and travel in and out of the core without the hassles of traffic or parking. Since JTA’s buses connect to the Skyway, passengers have complete flexibility to travel beyond Downtown to virtually anywhere JTA travels.
