The Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) has announced it will be offering a park and ride service to shoppers during the busy holiday season.



The service will begin at 3 p.m and will be offered up to Christmas Eve.



Marketing and Communications Manager at the JUTC, Clinton Clarke, says the park and ride service is being introduced to ease congestion in the city during the busy Christmas holiday period.



The JUTC says the shuttle buses will be available to take holiday shoppers from the parking area at Kings House to the Half-Way Tree Transport Centre and to The Ward Theatre in Downtown Kingston.



A round trip to either location will cost $300 for adults and will be free to children up to the age of 11 years.



The buses on the downtown route will leave every hour during the designated period, while those travelling to Half-Way Tree will leave every half hour.



The Half-Way Tree buses will travel along Constant Spring Road and will pick up and let off commuters at bus stops along the shopping corridor between Kings Plaza and Premier Plaza.



The final stop will be the Half-Way Tree Transport Centre.
