The Jamaica Urban Transit Company, JUTC, says reports that one of its buses contributed to the traffic pile-up on the Palisadoes Road on New Year’s Day is false.
Commissioner of Police, George Quallo, says a bus belonging to the state-owned bus company broke down in the vicinity of the party. He says this added to the traffic backlog on the road.
Director of Communications at the JUTC, Cecil Thoms says this is not the case.
He says a JUTC bus was being road tested on the day and developed some mechanical difficulty. But he says this happened more than a mile away from the party.
