Henry says new fare structure won't help JUTC

FORMER Minister of Transport and Works Mike Henry says the current plan being enforced at the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) to reduce losses will more likely to lead to another $1.3-billion deficit this year. Mr Henry predicted that, the buses are going to deteriorate, fewer people are going to use them and more robots are going to enter the system. Henry lamented the fact that the neither the Ministry of Transport nor the JUTC has produced a plan to deal with these issues, and ensure profitability or an improved bus environment. He said that the most critical issue, however, is that the Government will continue to maintain a system that is being subsidised by the taxes of all Jamaicans, but is only available to passengers in the Kingston Metropolitan Transport Region (KMTR).
