“The Skyway is a fantastic way to get around Downtown and experience the 2018 Jacksonville Jazz Festival,” said Lisa Darnall, Vice President of JTA Transit Operations. “The Hemming Park Skyway Station is conveniently located adjacent to ‘The Groovin State’ and within walking distance of the other stages.”

Skyway trains will continue to provide service to the following stations: Rosa Parks, Hemming Park, Central, Jefferson, San Marco, Riverplace, and Kings Avenue.

During the Jazz Festival, bicycles, coolers and double wide baby strollers will not be permitted on the trains. We apologize for the inconvenience.
