JUTC is here to stay, stop stoning our buses, says Campbell

The management of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company is appealing to persons to stop stoning its buses.



The appeal follows reports of the stoning of JUTC buses this morning.



A release from the JUTC did not provide any information on the reported incidents.



However, Managing Director, Colin Campbell has hinted that the incidents may be related to the reformed Sub-franchise System in the Kingston Metropolitan Region (KMTR).



He says the new system is here to stay and actions such as the stoning of the company’s buses will not deter the JUTC.



Campbell is calling for the firmest action by the Transport Authority and the Police against people found to be attacking JUTC buses.



The new Sub-franchise System came into effect on April 1, 2014 with a one-week extension given to the Sub-franchise operators to comply with all the regulations stipulated by the JUTC.



The extension ends tomorrow.
