The opposition Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) has vowed not to let up on its demand for the Government to rollback the fare increase granted to the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC).



Opposition leader Andrew Holness this morning told a mass rally in Half-Way Tree, St Andrew the fare increase is another example of bad decisions made by the Government.



Holness further said the Government is more interested in passing International Monetary Fund tests than improving the lives of Jamaicans.



An elderly woman who identified herself only as Lorraine was among the hundreds of protesters in Half-Way Tree.



She accused the Government of failing to suitably address the transportation of seniors.
