The Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) says On Monday, September 1, students in uniform, who are not in possession of their SMARTER Cards, will be allowed to ride Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) buses free of cost for the day only.
The company is extending this amnesty to students as it officially rolls out its Electronic Fare Collection System or cashless system on that day.
JUTC’s Managing Director, Colin Campbell says he is urging students to make use of this “last reprieve” to get registered and collect their cards on their way to or from school.
Students may collect their SMARTER Cards from the Half-Way Tree Transport Centre, the JUTC office at East Parade in downtown Kingston and the Spanish Town lay-by in St. Catherine.
The SMARTER Card distribution centre at the Half-Way Tree Transport Centre will be open this Saturday and Sunday, August 30 and 31 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
