Transport hubsEdit

JeffTran has two transport hubs, which are also locally known as transfer stations. The main transport hub is at JeffTran's operational headquarters and serves all routes except Capital Mall. A secondary transport hub is the standalone bus shelter area at the north end of Stonecreek Drive, which is near the parking lot of the Stadium Boulevard Walmart. This second transport hub only serves the Capital Mall and Missouri Blvd routes.[6]

This partially decentralized setup means, for example, a person located west of this Walmart who wants to ride Business 50 East, High Street West, High Street East, or Southwest must get on the Capital Mall bus, transfer to the Missouri Blvd bus at the secondary transport hub, and then transfer again at the main transport hub to one of the other listed buses. It also means that anybody riding these routes who want to transfer to the Capital Mall bus have to get on the Missouri Blvd bus at the main transport hub and then transfer to the Capital Mall bus at the secondary transport hub.
