The objective of the survey was to gather Jackson County, Michigan, household and business input to identify the priority and secondary needs of current JATA users, future users, past users, and county residents over the next decade. Our goals were to determine if there were unmet needs in order to create a system that better meets the needs of the county. Below you will find the results of a Community Report, Passenger survey, the Executive Director’s community presentation, and event participants engagement results.

To help us, please continue to participate in discourse and community planning opportunities to ensure a continued community effort.
