The JCTC meets regularly with the staff of the Transportation Department to consider, address and advise on various transportation-related issues. The JCTC makes recommendations to both the Transportation Department and the Board of County Commissioners.

The JO is committed to providing our patrons, safe, comfortable and timely transportation. Unfortunately, inclement weather can affect our standard operations. We plan for anticipated weather events and take proactive actions in an attempt to minimize delays and inconvenience to our patrons. While each event may dictate a different response, some of the proactive actions JCT will take are:
Despite our preplanning and best efforts, service can be affected by events out of our control. Traffic congestion is the primary cause of service delays. Our dispatch system and Dispatchers respond real-time to situations as they occur in an effort to keep service a smooth as possible. We have no control over the clearing of roads, parking lots, or ramps and must deal with road conditions as the general public does.
As always we are glad to hear from our patrons and appreciate any suggestions on how we can improve our service.
The JO always plans to run ALL routes in a timely manner.
