Do I need a car?
A car is not absolutely necessary in the summer, but is extremely helpful. You are probably coming to Jackson to explore, so what better way to do that in your own vehicle. The START bus runs on a more limited schedule valley wide in the summer months, but the town shuttle is still available to bring you around town.
If you are staying in Teton Village, you will inevitably travel to downtown Jackson to shop and dine. If you are staying in town, you will need transportation to and from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Both types of trips can be taken on the public bus system – START (Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit) Bus. A cheap and efficient way to travel around the valley, a one-way trip from downtown Jackson to Teton Village costs $3 per person.
