Jamaica to introduce electric public passenger buses

Jamaica is to introduce electric buses, starting with 45 units to be added to the fleet of the state-owned Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC).

This was disclosed by Governor General Sir Patrick Allen during his Throne Speech at today’s ceremonial opening of parliament.

“The projected benefits of implementing this initiative are quite significant and include energy saving, environmental preservation and the reduction of the national fuel bill,” Allen said.

He said the government is on a move to expand the JUTC’s fleet so as to sustain daily bus deployment and to improve service delivery.

Last September, Energy Minister Fayval Williams indicated that she wants Jamaica to seriously consider introducing electric buses to the public transport system.
