Vehicles parked on town streets or in town parking lots after 2:00 AM will be ticketed and may be towed.   If you are planning on going out for the evening, the Town of Jackson encourages you to plan for the possibility of parking.  Overnight parking is permitted in the parking structure located at Milward Street and Simpson Ave.  Vehicles are allowed to park in the garage for up to 48 hours. 

Everyone at START wishes you a very safe, happy and multimodal holiday season!   For more information about any of the commuter service changes or additional New Year’s Eve town shuttle services please call the START Bus office at (307) 733-4521 ext. 6.
