The management of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company, JUTC, is advising the public, that it will terminate its service at 8pm due to lingering safety concerns among its drivers.
Service is expected to resume at 5am tomorrow.
We continue to meet and discuss the attendant issues with our drivers, several of whom showed up for work this morning. Meetings were held across all depots and counselling sessions were conducted at the Rockfort depot.
Meanwhile, the phased roll-out of buses began today on selective routes. These are – Spanish Town Depot – 21, 21B, 22, 22A, 23A, 26, 30, 31, 31A, 32, 32B, 44, 46 and 47. Rockfort Depot – 83, 97, 99, 89 and 78. Portmore Depot – 1, 1A, 3, 3A, 8A, 12, 12A, 16, 17,20, and 20A.
We continue to assess the situation and hope to have a full restoration of service in short order.
We crave the understanding of our commuters and thank our security partners and our drivers for their commitment to service.
