SPANISH TOWN, St. Catherine: Following discussions with Transport Minister Robert Montague, a decision has been taken to grant sub-franchise operators an additional week to pay their road licenses. The road licenses will expire on Sunday, March 31, 2019, however, operators will now have until Monday, April 8, 2019 to renew their licenses.
Operators are being encouraged to take advantage of the grace period to avoid prosecution, as no further extensions will be given.
The JUTC collaborates with private operators to provide supplemental services on certain routes within the Kingston Metropolitan Transport Region where the Company by virtue of certain operational challenges cannot efficiently operate. Currently there are some 400 private vehicle owners that benefit from this partnership and provide public transportation services on select routes.
