Some public transport operators withdraw service

Some public transport operators in St Catherine have withdrawn their service as they press the Government to address their concerns about the improvement of the transport sector.

The transport operators have cited the increased fines and penalties under the new Road Traffic Act among the reasons for withdrawing their service. 

The commuting public in Kingston & St Andrew, St Catherine, St Mary and St Ann have been affected.

Not in support                            

But one group representing PPV operators says its members are not in support of a withdrawal of service as protest action.

Egerton Newman, President of the Transport Operators Development Sustainable Services, told Radio Jamaica News that his group has been in consultation with the government about their grouses and does not believe a withdrawal of service would be the best move at this time.
