JTA Launching New ReadiRide Zones Dec. 2

JACKSONVILLE, FL – The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) is expanding ReadiRide to three additional neighborhood zones on Monday, Dec. 2 along with other service changes for some JTA bus routes.

The JTA offers ReadiRide through Owl, Inc. to provide affordable, on-call transportation for customers seeking short trips within certain neighborhoods. Unlike traditional bus service, ReadiRide does not operate on a fixed-route, giving customers more control over where they want to be transported.

ReadiRide currently operates in designated zones within the Arlington, Beaches, Highlands, Mandarin, Northside, Southeast, Southside and Southwest neighborhoods.

Beginning Dec. 2, that service territory expands to parts of Talleyrand, Pritchard and Oakleaf neighborhoods, bringing the total to 11. Maps of the new ReadiRide zones can be found here

ReadiRide reservations can be made Monday – Saturday, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. by calling (904) 679-4555. Customers are asked to call at least two hours in advance of their trips to book a reservation.

Single trips are $2 per passenger, per trip. Customers can purchase fares with cash, (exact change only), or through the free MyJTA app, available for smart mobile devices.

 

Route Changes due to ReadiRide

With the launch of the Oakleaf ReadiRide zone, Route 26 will no longer travel west of Rampart Road, and Sunday service will be eliminated.

Route 31 will also be eliminated after the Talleyrand ReadiRide Zone is launched.

The Pritchard ReadiRide zone will replace the service area covered by Route 83, which will be discontinued.

 

Service Changes to Fixed-Routes

Other fixed-routes with service changes include 26, 28, 31, 83, 86 and 200. Routes with time changes include 4, 8, 10, 13, 22, 23, 24, 28, 53 and 200.
