Jamaica Urban Transit Company Limited Introduction The Jamaica Urban Transit Company Limited (JUTC) was incorporated on July 13, 1998 with the mandate to provide a safe, reliable, modern, professional, efficient, and cost effective transportation service to the Kingston+Metropolitan+Transport+Region">Kingston Metropolitan Transport Region (KMTR). The KMTR covers 5 franchise areas namely Eastern, Spanish Town, Papine, Portmore, and Northern. The JUTC operates from three Depots with a Central Maintenance Workshop (CMW). The depots are located at Twickenham Park and Portmore in St. Catherine and Rockfort in Kingston, while the CMW is located at Ashenheim Road, Kingston. The Company also operates out of the Half Way Tree Transportation Centre, a facility comprising a bus station over two levels and a 900 square metre terrace that provides a central hub for its buses and commuters. The establishment of the JUTC was the Government of Jamaica’s (GOJ) effort to bring order to the public transportation system. The JUTC contributes to connecting the nation’s metropolitan economic centres, by way of safe and reliable service to boost employment and reduce traffic congestion. In support of the GOJ’s national policy priorities, the JUTC is mandated to provide 25,000 to 31,000 seats per day to meet the demands of the commuting public within the KMTR. Operational and Financial Overview The JUTC will continue to pursue a number of activities aimed at increasing operational efficiencies which should enhance the service to commuters and contribute to reduction in operating costs. The activities that are being pursued include:

1) Implementation of an Oil Filtration System in 300 buses (2019/20: 150 buses) aimed at improving the efficiency and operational life of the buses’ engines.

2) Refurbishment of 15 damaged buses to facilitate their return to service. The JUTC’s Operational Plan assumes total passenger carry of approximately 50 million (2019/20 – 41 million) from an average bus run out of 391 daily (2019/20: 350). To facilitate the increased passenger carry the Company will seek to:

1) Enhance its fleet management and bus tracking system to provide real-time information to assist with efficient decision making and service delivery.

2) Improve the fare collection system to support the efficient collection of revenue.

3) Increase the fleet by fifty (50) new buses; The JUTC forecast a net deficit of $5,782.50 million (2019/20: $2,265.70 million - surplus). Government Subvention represents $5,346.30 million (2019/20: $6,631.47 million) of total revenue. The Company has projected a staff complement of 2,168 (2019/20: 2,034).

Corporation">Jamaica Railway Corporation Introduction The Corporation">Jamaica Railway Corporation (JRC) is a statutory body formed under the Corporation">Jamaica Railway Corporation Act of 1960. Since December 1990 the Corporation granted user rights over a section of its tracks to West Indies Alumina Company (WINDALCo) to operate a freight service. The Corporation’s train service was suspended in October 1992, but resumed in 2011 with a limited passenger service covering Spanish Town, Bog Walk and Linstead in St. Catherine. The resumption of limited passenger service was discontinued on August 12, 2012. Operational and Financial Overview To maximize the economic use of the rail, efforts will continue towards facilitating the rehabilitation of a viable rail network from Kingston to Montego Bay for passenger, freight, as well as heritage tourism. The JRC will also pursue initiatives to improve the management of its extensive real estate portfolio with a view to increasing the overall return on assets. The establishment of an Enterprise Team to guide the privatisation of the rail network was approved in 2019/20. Accordingly, it is anticipated that the process to facilitate increased private participation in the restoration of rail services across the network will continue during the budget year. The JRC will continue to fulfil its existing contractual responsibilities under the Track User Agreement with UC Rusal Jamaica Limited. The JRC projects a net profit of $61.87 million (2019/20 estimate: $20.27 million).

JRC plans to maintain its existing staff complement of Fifty One (51).
