The Transport Ministry is warning motorists not to use the bus lane along the Mandela Highway which has been designated for use by the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC).

The announcement on Wednesday by the state minister in charge of works, Everald Warmington, that the measure was to be discontinued reportedly caused confusion yesterday.

It's reported that some motorists attempted to use the exclusive JUTC bus lane.

However, Director of Communication in the Transport Ministry, Vando Palmer says the exclusive lane for the JUTC will continue until further notice.

Palmer says the transport minister will be reviewing the impact the exclusive lane before a decision is made.
