Managing Director of the State-owned bus company, Jamaica Urban Transit Company, JUTC, Paul Abrahams says yesterday’s unrest in the public transport sector cost the company millions.
The disruption that basically crippled the daily commute for thousands of Jamaicans in the Kingston Metropolitan Region was spawned by the killing of a taxi operator and a JUTC driver.
Mr Abrahams is anticipating a roll out the JUTC buses tomorrow morning.
Fearful JUTC drivers refrained from returning to the wheels yesterday despite a promised 5pm service resumption time.
Meanwhile, Mr Abrahams says suggestions proposed by the drivers to ensure safety on the buses yesterday, were not all feasible.
