JTA strike update

JACKSONVILLE, FL (August 16, 2010)JTA is disappointed that the union bus operators voted to reject our contract offer as well as authorize their union leadership to seek approval for a strike. 

The union has also asked to resume contract negotiations, and JTA is willing to do so immediately upon assurances that all operators continue to perform their obligations to provide service, including the upcoming Jaguar Stadium Shuttle Service, during these negotiations.

JTA’s mission is to provide the best possible transit service to the citizens of Jacksonville, and our bus operators demonstrate their dedication to that mission each day.  JTA is committed to the well-being of its employees, and looks forward to working diligently to reach an accord that will be sustainable.  

As talks continue, regular transit service will continue to be provided, including regular bus service, community shuttles, Ride Request, paratransit and the Skyway.  JTA will provide on-going updates to the community through the media, our website (www.jtafla.com), and our Facebook page.  In addition, customers may call our customer service department at (904) 630-3100, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
