Public encouraged to report any overcharging of fares


Members of the public are being encouraged to report any overcharging of fares to the Transport Authority.

Corporate Communications Manager at the Transport Authority, Petra-Kene Williams, says Commuters may report incidents of overcharging through the Authority’s toll-free line at 888-991-5687 or via WhatsApp at 876-551-8196.

She further noted that persons can make a complaint to a Route Inspector on location.

Cabinet approved a 15 per cent fare adjustment in bus and taxi fares, which came into effect on August 16.

The rate for the elderly, the disabled and children remains at 50 per cent of the adult fare.

There has been no change to the fare for the Jamaica Urban Transit Company and Montego Bay Metro.
