When Wyoming Governor Matt Mead signed ride-sharing legislation in early 2017, it brought both Lyft and Uber to the state for the convenience of residents and visitors alike. These ride-sharing services are a convenient way to get around in Jackson Hole. To use either Lyft or Uber, riders need only download the mobile app and add a method of payment.
Once you've got the app on your mobile device the service of your choosing will dispatch the closest personal driver, as well as giving you the option to share the ride with multiple passengers in order to keep your ride cost down. Whether you like pooling to your destination or prefer to ride alone, Lyft and Uber make it easier to get around the Jackson Hole area than ever before.
If you love the convenience of Lyft and Uber, then you’ll appreciate Jackson's other convenient ground transportation options. Below are our top tips for Jackson Hole ground transportation:
