New plans for transport system to kick off mid-Jan (Jamaica)
New plans for a transport system in Jamaica's capital will be launched by mid-January within the framework of the redevelopment of downtown Kingston, said the transport authority's manager of operations, Cecil Morgan, in a press release.


Under the new arrangements, state-owned Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) buses will be able to terminate at both the North and South Parade areas, where commuters will be connected to the various bus terminals through one of eight free JUTC shuttles that will operate between 5am and 11pm, according to the authority.


In addition, Morgan said some 20 inspectors will utilized by the transport authority to maintain order in the downtown area, and assistant commissioner of police Gervis Taylor added that policemen will also be placed along all routes in the center's transport area to ensure the safety of commuters.


The new transport plan will also ease traffic congestion in Kingston, address the lack of parking facilities, provide a safer environment and allow for better monitoring and regulating of public passenger vehicles, said Morgan.
