The state-run Jamaica Urban Transit Company JUTC) said as of September 1 it will only accept payment of concession fares on its buses via its SmarterCard system.

The bus company said as it moves to implement a fully Electronic Fare Collection or 'cashless' system, it will be requiring that concession passengers use only this method to pay their fares.

"Concession passengers must have their SmarterCards with them every time they take a JUTC bus," JUTC Managing Director Colin Campbell said in a recent media release.

Concession passengers are students ages 12 to 20 in school uniform; the elderly 60 years and older; and persons with disabilities who have been issued identification cards by the Jamaica Council for Persons with Disabilities.
