INSTEAD OF the hassle of driving down for Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival, to be held at the Greenfield Stadium in Trelawny in two weeks, park your cars and go in comfort, courtesy of Knutsford Express.

Knutsford Express is a luxury bus service that provides a comfortable and effortless travel between Kingston, Ocho Rios and Montego Bay. Owner of the bus service, Oliver Townsend, said Knutsford Express will provide an easier and hassle-free method of getting to the festival. He said all patrons have to do is book their place on the bus, and be transported in style.

The bus has comfortable reclining seats with adequate spacing for each person, air-conditioning and quality entertainment. Townsend noted that persons who take the bus will have easier access to the venue as they have preferential entrance. "So our customers won't have to join the long lines to park or to enter the venue," said Townsend.


He noted that, as with everything, early birds catch the most worms and though they have made up a special rate for the festival, there is even a lower cost for early birds which was up on January 14.
