Management Of HWT Transport Centre Transferred To Transport Authority

The Management of the Half Way Tree Transport Centre in St Andrew has been transferred from the Port Authority Management Services Limited, a subsidiary of the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ), to the Transport Authority.

The Port Authority Management Services Limited have been moved to the Transport Authority since the change took effect on September 1, 2018. Moving forward, the PAJ

This is an interesting turn of events as the PAJ was originally incorporated in 2007 with sole purpose of managing the Transport Centre Operations. The PAJ was appointed as the implementing agency for the construction of the centre and to be responsible for its management. In late 2016, it was agreed that the PAJ would be removed and the ownership would be transferred to the Transport Authority.

These changes were disclosed in a Ministry Paper from cabinet that was recently tabled in Parliament.
