JUTC fare increases coming August 24

Published:Wednesday | August 20, 2014 | 11:06 AM

Come Sunday August 24, adults will pay $20 more to travel on JUTC buses.

This will bring the fare to $120, up from $100.

Students will pay $30 up from $20.

The elderly will pay $60.

Transport Minister Omar Davies announced the increases this morning in a press conference.

According to Davies, five years ago the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) recommended an increase of $131 for adults and $40 for concessionary fares.

However, he deemed this too high.

In the meantime, come September 1 concessionary passengers will be forced to pay the adult fare if they do not acquire the JUTC’s SMARTER cards.
