    • About

      Jefferson Transit is a public transit system that began service in May 1981 after a successful vote by Jefferson County citizens in 1980. Jefferson Transit operates as a Public Transportation Benefit Area (PTBA) in accordance with RCW 36.57A in the State of Washington.  Revenue service began in May, 1981 and along the Pacific Ocean coast in January, 1995.  Also in 1995, Jefferson Transit completed construction of a centrally located Park & Ride facility, which became the new hub for fixed route services.  Following the loss of Motor Vehicle Excise Tax (MVET) revenue, Jefferson County voters approved an additional 0.3 percent sales tax in September of 2000, and an additional 0.3 percent sales tax in February of 2011 for a total percent of 0.9 percent.


      The Jefferson Transit Authority Board of Directors is comprised of all three Jefferson County Commissioners, two appointees from the Port Townsend City Council and a state mandated non-voting member r
