JUTC supports robust debate of Transport Minister’s proposal to open up all public routes

SPANISH TOWN, St. Catherine: The Jamaica Urban Transit Company Limited, JUTC, takes note of the public discourse regarding the Transport Minister Robert Montague’s proposal to open up all public routes in Jamaica to all operators who are interested in obtaining a licence to enter the business.

We thank the Minister and Government for the invitation to canvass our views with regards to the development of the industry. As we look ahead, we will be engaging our members with a view to framing our position to the proposal and therefore will make no public comment on the matter pending the conclusion of the national consultations.

Like the Minister, we also take this opportunity to invite other stakeholders to solicit the views of their members and put forward their ideas, so that collectively we can hammer out a solution that not only improves public transportation but also the communities they serve.
