The following is from a reader. It seems that JAUNT has some marketing to do.
“Thanks for your blog entry that mentioned Jaunt. I didn’t know they offer commuter service. I thought they only did transport for handicapped folks. I spoke with (someone) at Jaunt who advised that all commuter service between Crozet-Cville is door-to-door upon request, and they have no way of knowing how long any particular route would take on any given day.
She said that there are no plans for express service — and it would have to be taken up with city council who funds them.
I would definitely consider using the service if it would just be one pick-up in Crozet (say at Bank of America parking lot which is a designated park & ride) to a stop (or two) in Cville [Downtown Mall & UVA/Corner?].
I think that the service needs to have a predictable schedule and route.
I really can’t commit to using a service that might take 45 mins-1 hour due to multiple stops along the way.”
