KINGSTON — The Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) will be offering transportation service to and from the Denbigh agricultural show, which gets underway on Saturday, July 30.

The cost is $995 per person per day over the three days of the event, which concludes on Monday, August 1.

The buses will leave Half-Way Tree Transport Centre, Portmore Mall and the JUTC Bus Park in Spanish Town at 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. each day for Denbigh, and depart at 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.

Bus tickets are available at Portmore Texaco in Braeton; Genus Pharmacy at Portmore Plaza; Portmore Mall Pharmacy at the Portmore Shopping Centre; JUTC Bus Park at Burke Road in Spanish Town; Angels Petcom at Angels Estate in Spanish Town; Half-Way Tree Transport Centre; S&S Hardware, 216 Old Hope Road; and JUTC Smartcard Sales Office at 7 East Parade.

Corporate Communications Manager at JUTC, Reginald Allen, said the company decided to extend its charter service, which allows persons to travel in comfort and style to special events.

"It is about JUTC assisting in taking the hassle out of the whole Denbigh experience. We are facilitating convenience so persons do not have to encounter with the traffic, parking issues and all that comes with doing it yourself…instead you can just relax, work with our timing and get to Denbigh comfortably and safe for the three days of the show," he said.

Mr. Allen is urging persons to "help us get rid of the extreme traffic hazards that are usually associated with Denbigh and allow us to take you there in comfort and style at a reasonable price…just pack what you need and come along with us and we will do the rest to make sure that Denbigh is much more appealing for you."
