Mr. Abrahams was speaking at a press conference yesterday at the state-owned bus company’s corporate office in Spanish Town, St. Catherine.

He says there’ve been more than 80 incidents between January and September this year in which JUTC buses have been damaged due to stone throwing.

He says the company has lost $50-million over the last four years because of more than 230 similar incidents.
