JTA to Introduce Route 82 on Monday, August 7

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – July 27, 2017 – The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) is pleased to introduce Route 82, with direct shuttle service between the Armsdale Park-n-Ride and the Amazon Fulfillment Center Warehouse on Pecan Park Road. The service will launch on Monday, August 7 to coincide with JTA service changes. Route 82 will operate seven days a week, with service 30 minutes before and after shift changes in the morning and evening. The Amazon Shuttle will operate every five to seven minutes during shift changes.

The Armsdale Lot is located at 3191 Armsdale Road, just south of I-295 off Lem Turner Road. The Park-n-Ride features parking for 189 vehicles, bike racks and ticket vending machines. The Park-n-Ride offers direct connections to the First Coast Flyer “Green Line”.

Riding on the shuttle is easy with the MyJTA mobile application which allows customers to purchase an unlimited-ride, single-day pass for $4 or a one-ride ticket for $1.50 from the convenience of their smart phone. Download the free MyJTA app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.

JTA STAR Cards are also available for purchase at the Rosa Parks Transit Station and at Ticket Vending Machines. STAR Cards be loaded and reloaded with time-based passes (such as weekly or monthly), specific number of trips or dollar value. STAR Cards can be automatically reloaded every month with an automatic deduction from a customer’s bank account or credit card. This option will be available online or at Rosa Parks Transit Station. A unique web-based card registration process means if a card is lost or stolen, the remaining value will be restored on a new card by JTA. The card is good for three years. The best value is the 31-day pass which is available for $50 which equates to $1.62 per day.
