JTA Park-N-Ride Coming to Clay County

Some of this is a re-hash of a previous post.  I spoke with JTA today on the status of the long awaited JTA (Jacksonville Transit Authority) Clay County Park-N-Ride service (link to JTA Park-N-Ride page).  This will offer bus service from the Fleming Island – Middleburg area of Clay County to Jacksonville.  In addition, Clay Transit will utilize the Clay County Park-N-Ride facility (link to Clay Transit).

Construction on the site is nearly done and expected completion is approximately one month out.  At first Clay Transit will be begin using the facility.  JTA will begin their bus routes in January (approximately).  JTA is looking for suggestions for routes.  Typical Park-N-Ride routes will terminate at the downtown transit hub.  There may be limited amount of stops between the Clay County Park-N-Ride facility and the downtown Jacksonville hub.  An additional stop may be Kent Campus – Florida State College.

The location is at the southwest quadrant of CR 220 and Sleepy Hollow Road (adjacent to railroad tracks). The routes have not been determined and won’t be until JTA conducts a destination study. Jacksonville Transportation Authority’s Park-N-Ride Bus program has nine locations throughout Duval County/Jacksonville.





Below shows Phase 1 of the Clay County Multi-Modal Center. A total of 50 parking spaces fronting CR 220 directly across the street from Green South (John Deere products) and nearby Food Lion in Village Shoppes at Doctors Inlet. Future plans for the nearly 30 acre tract include a train station and possibly a county health department building.

  1. Rick Russell says:

    I live just south of the new Clay County Park-N-Ride on 220 and I work downtown at the CSX building. I would LOVE to have a direct route that goes downtown (dropping off at or near the CSX building or 550 water street) starting at 0700 and return back to this park-n-ride by 1800. I would use it 3-4 times a week.

    • Rick – JTA is looking for suggested routes. Please contact them. I’d certain they’ll get you to the main station downtown near First Baptist Church. I’d love to take the bus and not have to drive through the ‘northbound’ traffic! Good luck. Nick

  2. I live in Middleburg off cr 218
    and I work at Home depot at Lane ave
    is it possible to have transit to and from this area??
    and at different times.??

    • The lot is currently being used by Clay Transit and carpoolers. The JTA is working with the county and Clay Transit to develop the most efficient and cost effective plan for serving the lot with an express service. Until then, passengers can continue to connect with the JTA Express route (X4) at the K-Mart on Blanding Blvd or the Dog Track on 17. The link to the Clay Transit service is located at to the X4 Orange Park Express service at and to the TPO’s Car Pool program at JTA will be finalizing plans for the express route from the Clay County Park-N-Ride soon (according to JTA). Can you get to Lane Avenue once they are up and running? I would think so, but the bus will go to the downtown station and you would likely transfer there. I’ll update the blog as I get more information.
