  • JUTC has announced that the planned discontinuation of the bus transfer system will be delayed by one week.

The Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) has announced that the planned discontinuation of the bus transfer system will be delayed by one week, to Sunday, November 17.

The company had previously announced that the transfer system would be discontinued on Sunday, November 10.

According to the company, the extension will allow commuters who will be affected to familiarize themselves with the alternative bus routes.

The JUTC’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Clinton Clarke, told JIS News that pushing back the date will also give the bus company time to adequately inform the public of the change.

“The delay will give our customers an opportunity to be advised of their options and will also give us a chance to engage the public on the reasons for the change,” he said.

Mr. Clarke said the JUTC will embark on a public education campaign in the coming week, to ensure that the information flow from the JUTC is sustained and effective.
