KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The Managing Director of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company Colin Campbell has hit back at critics of his leadership of the State own bus company.

Former contractor general, Greg Christie and Generation 2000, (G2K) the young professional affiliate of the Jamaica Labour Party, are among those who have questioned the performance of the JUTC under Campbell's leadership.

Both Christie and the G2K are concerned that Campbell, a People’s National Party political activist, was appointed to lead the JUTC.

They've questioned why Jamaica has not been told how much he’s being paid.

But, the JUTC Managing Director says he’s not perturbed by what he describes as personal attacks.

Campbell maintains that there have been many improvements at the bus company since he joined the JUTC.

Among other things, he cites is the expansion of the company's fleet while growing revenue and reducing the JUTC's debt.

Responding to calls for an audit of the JUTC, the company’s managing director says such an exercise has already been carried out by the Auditor General and the bus company has addressed issues raised in the report.

Campbell maintains that criticisms about the JUTC’s efficient are unfounded.
