JUTC News Release

JUTC only transporting passengers with face masks

The Jamaica Urban Transit Company, JUTC, says all passengers are now required to bring and wear their own protective masks as the cases of COVID-19 increases. Passengers who fail to wear a facial barrier will not be allowed entry on buses.

This requirement takes immediate effect and is to ensure the comfort, safety and wellbeing of each passenger and our staff.

Passengers are also reminded to respect the personal space of others and observe social distancing where required and to comply with other safety measures as announced.

In addition, we advise that passengers will only be carried between 6:00a.m. and 6:00p.m. in keeping with the restrictions announced by the Government recently.

Kindly note that for hill routes (Above Rocks and Border) including 52, 53, 54, 61 their last run will be at 4:30pm.

For all other routes the last available bus will be at 5:00p.m. Buses will return to the depot between 6:00p.m. and 7:00p.m. without passengers.

Meanwhile, the JUTC is advising that it can facilitate the transportation of government entities and companies which provide essential services. Arrangements should be made no later than 6:00p.m. daily. Contact our COVID Command Centre at 876.587.9206 or 876.587.9290 or via email – Operations @jutc.com.jm for further information.

We will review these measures where necessary and adjust accordingly as we continue to monitor the situation.
