DO I NEED A CAR?
If you are staying in Teton Village, you will inevitably travel to town to do some shopping, and if you are staying in town you will need to get to and from the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Jackson Hole has a public transportation system called the START Bus (Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit) that is a cheap and efficient way of traveling around the valley. A one-way trip from the town of Jackson to Teton Village is $2.00 per person.

If you plan on renting a car there are some things you should know: 1. Our abundant snow sometimes makes for stormy driving conditions. 2. Teton Village has two paid parking lots at $5 per car per day. There are also two free parking lots and if you have four or more people in your car you can park for free anywhere you want. 3. The town of Jackson has free parking. 4. The Valley is flat, so unless you are planning a trip to Grand Targhee over Teton Pass, it is not necessary to rent a 4WD vehicle. Please discuss your requirements with the rental car company.
