Extending the license period for Transport Operators for May 2012



JATOO | 2012-03-28 08:57:00

The Jamaica Association of Transport Owners and Operators (JATOO) is concern at the number of Transport Operators who are unable  to renew their road and route license due to the financial down turn in the sector and we are calling on JUTC and the Transport authority to consider an extension to the end of May 2012.

We are aware of the financial constraint of the government and its agencies, but while they are able to find  a way out through government subvention as private operators we are unable to get any help.

The continued increase of fuel, insurance parties and service makes operating life unbearable for Operators. JATOO pledge on the behalf of all Operators, especially those on the JUTC franchise contract to lobby for their rights, discount services and benefits.

JATOO will be holding a special general meeting this Sunday to decide on whether we should make a submission for a fare increase.
