All Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) employees, who are rostered for duty as of Sunday, August 31, are being asked to report to work at their respective locations.
These locations are the Rockfort, Portmore, and Spanish Town depots, and the Ashenheim Road post.
Marketing Manager for the JUTC, Lenworth Simms, advises that regular bus service, which was suspended on Thursday, August 28, due to the impending passage of Tropical Storm Gustav, resumed on Saturday, August 30. As such, employees are being asked to report for duty, to facilitate the smooth operation of the company’s public passenger service.
Mr. Simms also advises that shuttle arrangements will be made for employees, residing on the eastern side of the Harbour View Bridge in St. Andrew, to take them to their posts. The bridge was destroyed during the passage of Gustav, marooning persons in communities on its eastern side.
He says buses will park in the vicinity of the foot bridge, from 3:00 a.m. each day. This arrangement, Mr. Simms adds, will be maintained until further notice.
