The Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) will be offering transportation service to and from the Denbigh Agricultural Show, in Clarendon, which gets underway on Saturday, August 4.

The cost is $999 per person (adults or children 3 years and over) per day over the three days of the event, which concludes on Monday, August 6.

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.

Tickets are available at Genus Pharmacy at Portmore Plaza; Portmore Mall Pharmacy at the Portmore Shopping Centre; JUTC Bus Park at Burke Road in Spanish Town; Half-Way Tree Transport Centre; S&S Hardware at Papine Plaza and JUTC Smartcard Sales Office at 7 East Parade, downtown Kingston.

Tickets will be available up to Tuesday, July 31.

Corporate Communications Manager at the 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  the traffic and  parking issues. Instead, you can just relax, work with our timing and get to Denbigh comfortably and safely for the three days of the show,” he said.

"Denbigh brings back the kind of nationalistic verve that is second to none and with this year being Jamaica’s 50th celebration, we are expecting a greater number of persons to be flocking Denbigh, and certainly a lot of those patrons will be using our service,” Mr. Allen pointed out.
