10 JUTC drivers/mechanics charged in ticketing fraud
The Jamaica Urban Transit Company's (JUTC) managing director, Colin Campbell, says over the last month, 10 drivers and mechanics have been arrested or charged for their involvement in schemes to defraud the bus company of revenues.
Speaking at the post-Cabinet press briefing this morning, he said the company continues to aggressively pursue its strategy to stem revenue leakage.
The company loses $250 million per month.
And he said with the removal of the transfer system, the JUTC is expected to save up to $600,000 per day.
Despite pleas from commuters and the Opposition Jamaica Labour Party, the JUTC ended its free transfer system on Sunday.
Campbell told journalists today that since the removal of the system, there has been an increase in the efficiency of the transportation system.
Bus routes have been created to facilitate those affected by the discontinuation of the transfer system.
