Dismantling the rural bus system

JATOO | 2012-03-28 08:54:00

The Jamaica Association of Transport Owners and Operators (JATOO) welcomes plan by the Transport Minister Omar Davies to put the brakes by the former government to establish a rural bus system.

JATOO has been urging the former Minister not to consider such a programme at this time as it would be a financial burden on the national treasury and most importantly such a system would put operators out of business.

Any introduction of a rural bus system would be vigorously rejected by JATOO, therefore this announcement by Minister Davies is a move in the right direction and must be commended.

The government need to urgently fix the continue over run of the state owned bus company and seriously consider removing persons in sensitive position who will undermine the sustainable development of the company.
