Getting Around in Jackson Hole

Do I need a car?
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.
If you decide to rent a car, you should know:
- Jackson Hole's abundant snow sometimes makes for stormy driving conditions.
- Teton Village has multiple parking lots. The Ranch Lot costs $5 per car per day or free with 3 or more people in your car. Other lots cost $12 per car per day. Parking in the Ranch Lot is free after 1 p.m. and all other lots are free after 3 p.m.
- The town of Jackson provides free parking.
- The valley is flat, so unless you are planning a trip to Grand Targhee Resort over Teton Pass, it is not necessary to rent a 4WD vehicle. Discuss your itinerary with the rental car company.
