KINGSTON, Jamaica — The TransJamaican Highway Limited (TJH), the operators of Highway 2000 East-West says it has made several improvements to better serve motorists using the roadway.

In addition to a police post opened last week, TJH, in a release Friday, said it has implemented new options for its T-tag customers.

T-Tag customers have the convenience to access their accounts with a new mobile application called T-Tag to Go, TJH said. Users are able to view account balances; add funds to accounts; set personalised low-balance reminders; and view historical transactions. The T-Tag to Go app can be downloaded free at the Google Play Store and the App Store, the release said.

The highway concession operators also said that in June they did not exercise an option to increase tall rates. This is second time that there would be no across-the-board movement in toll rates, as in 2010 the rates remained unchanged.

“We took into account the exchange rate, the consumer price index (CPI) — both of which have been favourable to Jamaica — along with other input variables specific to our operations, we found that we were in a position to forgo a rate increase this year,” said Guillaume Allain, managing director of TJH.
