JUTC summer fare deal starts today

Starting today, adults and some children will pay J$100 to travel on Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) buses.

The J$20 reduction for adults is part of the JUTC’s special summer deal, which will remain in place until August 29.

However, the state-owned bus company says student passengers between 12 and 20-years-old will have to pay the same fare as adults because their concession fare was suspended when the school year ended last Friday.

JUTC says the concession rate for students in that age group applies only during school time. It says student concession rates will resume on September 7 when schools reopen.
