Following discussions with Transport Minister Robert Montague, a decision has been made to grant subfranchise operators an additional week to pay their road licences.

The road licences will expire on Sunday, March 31, 2019. However, operators will now have until Monday, April 8, 2019, to renew their licences.

No further extensions

Operators are being encouraged to take advantage of the grace period to avoid prosecution as no further extensions will be given.

The Jamaica Urban Transit Company collaborates with private operators to provide supplemental services on certain routes within the Kingston Metropolitan Transport Region where the company by virtue of certain operational challenges cannot efficiently operate.

Currently there are some 400 private vehicle owners that benefit from this partnership and provide public transportation services on select routes.
