JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Transportation Authority will transition bus operations from the Rosa Parks Transit Station to the Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center at LaVilla on May 4, according to a release.
The JRTC at LaVilla is located at 100 LaVilla Center Dr. near the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center. It will serve as JTA’s new downtown bus transfer facility, administrative headquarters and intermodal hub with direct connections to the Skyway and the Intercity Bus Terminal, which serves Greyhound, Megabus and RedCoach lines, JTA said on Tuesday.
The JRTC at LaVilla will replace the Rosa Parks Transit Station as the JTA’s main downtown bus transfer facility, serving most JTA regular and express bus routes, the Skyway and the First Coast Flyer Bus Rapid Transit network.
All JTA bus routes will continue to operate on a “modified weekday schedule” to promote social distancing and to ensure safe travel for everyone, the release said.
We are happy to share that on Monday, May 4, the JTA will relocate most bus routes to the new Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center at LaVilla – with social distancing and other safety measures in place.— JTAFLA (@JTAFLA) April 28, 2020
