About JAC

Rider Alerts / Holiday Schedule / Community Events / Beneficiary Rights Under Title VI / ADA Policies and Procedures for Fixed Route Service

JAC (Jump Around Carson) is Carson City, Nevada’s public transit system serving the community with a fleet of bright green and purple buses that feature a sleek, hopping jackrabbit (a Northern Nevada icon). JAC began operating in October 2005 and is governed by the Carson City Regional Transportation Commission. The JAC system features the JAC fixed route system as well as JAC Assist, a curb-to-curb program that provides transportation for eligible persons with disabilities.

Ridership continues to grow as residents discover the convenience and value of the bus system for going to work, school, shopping, medical appointments and recreation facilities. Strategically placed stops throughout the community make it easy for passengers to conveniently visit a number of the city’s most popular destinations. Fares are only $1.00 per one-way trip for adults; and seniors, persons with disabilities and youth may ride for only $0.50 per one-way trip.

Detour List
JAC makes every effort to operate as scheduled, but schedules may vary due to weather, traffic or other conditions, including construction. If construction or special events should affect any of JAC’s routes, detours will be listed on the JAC Home page. Check back occasionally to see if any construction detours may affect your trip. Please understand the start and end times of the detours may change without notice due to construction or other delays.

Weather Alert
Since JAC operates at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the buses are equipped with chains to safely navigate snowy conditions. However, please be advised that bus service may be delayed without notice due to snow and/or icy conditions. We appreciate your understanding.

ADA Policies and Procedures for Fixed Route Service

In addition to the requirements under the Dept. of Transportation (DOT) Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for the complementary paratransit service, JAC also follows DOT ADA requirements for its fixed route service. These are provided here so that our customers may have an even knowledge base with the employees serving them. Click here to view these policies and procedures. 

Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC)

Seniors receive free rides on the JAC system through a grant provided by the State of Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division.  For more information about their program please visit their website at www.nevadaadrc.com

Short Range Transit Development Plan

The Short Range Transit Development Plan (TDP) is a document that serves to evaluate the existing JAC transit system, and also as a short-term strategic guide for public transportation in the Carson City area. The TDP has been developed (and will be updated) to meet local priorities for Carson City's existing transportation services, including capital improvements, operating changes to the existing system, and how Carson City will fund existing program needs over a five year period. The TDP was developed with consideration of public comments that were obtained during the development of the document, and can be viewed here
