JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Transportation Authority Board of Directors unanimously approved the extension of free Skyway service for another year.

Free service is now extended until Sept. 30, 2014.

JTA first introduced the free Skyway program in 2012. A JTA spokesperson says since the free program started, ridership increased 72 percent a month, or about 4,000 new riders every week.

“The fare-free Skyway program has been beneficial in promoting downtown activities, such as One Spark and the Jazz Festival,” said JTA CEO Nathaniel Ford Sr.

”Over the next year, we will be looking for ways to better integrate the Skyway into our bus routes as part of our Blueprint for Transportation Excellence program.”
