Is there a limit on what I can bring on the Jets Bus?
This policy is meant to reasonably limit the time and weight of carry-on items to prevent injury or unreasonable delay and provide a safe environment for all Jones County Jets passengers.
Any item that is too large to see around and/or too awkward for one person to carry through the vehicle doorway without continued readjustments will not be transported. Jones County Jets will transport only what the passenger (along with their companions or attendant) can carry on the vehicle in one trip with a maximum of ten plastic grocery bags to a total weight of twenty-five pounds. Items transported on Jones County Jets will be the sole responsibility of the rider.
Riders will have to take the responsibility of having the packages that are not allowed on a Jones County Jets vehicle delivered to their home by other means.

How do I cancel a JETS ride?
It is important to cancel your ride as early as possible. By doing this, you make it possible for other riders to get the transportation they need.
Call (319) 465-6564; the phone is staffed with an employee Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There is a voice mail system in place at all times to assist you in directing your call. You may call anytime day or night to cancel a ride. You must cancel at least one hour prior to the ride to avoid a missed ride.
If you are calling after hours for a cancellation, please leave the name of the rider, telephone number, date(s), and time(s) of trips you want to be canceled. It is also helpful to include the pick-up and drop-off addresses of all the trips you wish to cancel.
Drivers cannot make scheduling changes. Please do not ask them to make any changes for you. All schedule changes must be done through direct communication with the JETS dispatcher. Please call for any changes at (319) 465-6564.
What is your Door-to-Door Service policy? Can drivers assist clients in getting to and from the vehicle?
Drivers will escort all passengers from their outermost door to the entrance of the vehicle and will load them on the vehicle in the safest manner. Upon return, the driver will unload the passenger in the safest manner and escort them to the outermost door of their destination. Drivers are highly encouraged not to enter into any client’s residence.
Reasons for the Policy
Can drivers assist clients at their destination?
Drivers Can Not:
Are food and drinks allowed in JETS vehicles?
Open food and drink containers are not allowed in our vehicles.
Why do you follow school districts for severe weather closings?
The answer is very simple. If the schools feel it is too dangerous for the drivers and children to be on the road, it is also too dangerous for the elderly and disabled to be on the roads. Appointments can be rescheduled but people's lives cannot.
