The bus bays in North Parade in downtown Kingston sitting empty as bus drivers from the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) continue their industrial action on March 30.

Operations at the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) are still being impacted by drivers who are on strike.

The drivers have been protesting since yesterday afternoon to express their dissatisfaction with the government's new compensation system.

The bus company says teams from its finance department are meeting with the drivers to resolve the issue.

The JUTC says it continues to urge commuters to make alternative arrangements for transportation until normality is restored.
