THE Jamaica Urban Transit Company Limited (JUTC) says it has launched an extensive investigation into an incident involving a former member of staff who drove a bus from one of its depots on Sunday, December 23, 2018.

In a release yesterday, the JUTC said it has engaged retired Assistant Commissioner of Police Granville Gause to investigate the incident.

The company said the incident caused minor damage to a motor car in Grant’s Pen, St Andrew, but no one was injured.

“… The former staff, who was employed as a mechanic, came onto the compound in another bus which had reportedly developed mechanical problems [in] North Parade, Kingston. It is reported that the driver of the bus allowed the ex-employee to drive the bus back to the depot. It is further alleged that while at the depot, the ex-employee gained access to another unit and drove it out of the compound without the requisite security and operational clearance,” the JUTC said.

The state-run bus company said yesterday that preliminary assessments have so far revealed that the driver who allowed the ex-employee access to the facility was not aware that the individual was no longer working with the company.

Corporate Communications Manager Cecil Thoms said the incident was a very serious security and operational breach and that the matter has been reported to the police.

He said the company has also met with its security provider and is conducting a review of internal operations, pending the final report into the matter.
