JUTC News Release

Disruption of Regular Service

Update: Drivers remain off the job (March 30)

Operations at the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) are still being impacted by strike action.

The drivers have been protesting since yesterday to express their dissatisfaction with the new compensation system.

Teams from the JUTC Finance Department are meeting with drivers to resolve the issue and to have a full resumption of service.

Please monitor our social media pages as we provide updates on this developing situation.


The JUTC would like to advise commuters that there is a disruption in our regular service as some drivers have taken industrial action. As a result, there are huge crowds at our major transportation hubs. We are urging commuters to make alternative arrangements to get to their destinations. We will keep you updated.”
