TRANSPORT AUTHORITY SUSPENDS LATE FEES FOR RENEWAL APPLICATIONS FOR FOURTEEN DAYS

The Transport Authority is suspending the implementation of late fees for renewal of public passenger vehicle (PPV) road licences and commercial carriers for fourteen days until April 14, 2020.The suspension follows a directive from the Minister of Transport and Mining, Hon. Robert Montague to delay the implementation of the late fees in light of current health concerns surrounding the COVID -19 Virus. Minister Montague says operators of public passenger vehicles and commercial carriers are being provided the additional days to re-licence their vehicles without the usual penalty in order to ease the pressure of these operators as they provide the essential service of public transportation to the nations’ people during this challenging period. All owners/operators of Public Passenger Vehicle (PPV) and Commercial Carriers will therefore be required to pay late fees of $10,000.00 for the renewal applications submitted on April 15, 2020 and beyond.In the meantime, the Transport Authority is reminding licensees that they may utilize its Online Application portal at www.ta.org.jm to submit their applications once they have an active email account and a credit or visa debit card for payment. Customers using the Online Application portal can now submit PPV and also Commercial Carriers applications online and should contact the Transport Authority Call Centre at 1-888-991-5687 during the hours 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily for support in completing their applications.Contact:Petra-kene Williams, Manager, Corporate CommunicationsCell: 876-579-6097 / Tel: 876-936-0610
