What does JAUNT stand for?
JAUNT is no longer an acronym, however, when JAUNT
was founded, it was a nonprofit corporation, and
its name stood for Jefferson Area
UNited Transportation (JAUNT). In
1982 it became a public corporation owned by the
local governments and JAUNT, Inc. was formed.
So JAUNT is now the legal name, not just an acronym.
