Robert Montague, who was the minister of transport and mining up to last week, in his address noted that this application is a crucial component in the ministry’s mandate to revolutionise the transport sector. He said, “One of the items on my 16-point plan was the introduction of apps for the use of the public and people within the sector. I believe technology and innovation will make life easier for us in Jamaica.”

The then minister continued, “BCIC has invested its money in this system and I want to thank them and EduFocal for this partnership. This app forms a part of a wider programme that the ministry is using to treat with road safety.”

The overall cost of developing and maintaining the training platform totals $13 million, of which BCIC covered $10 million, and the transport ministry the remaining balance. Managing director of BCIC, Peter Levy, shared that the funding of this application reinforces BCIC’s commitment to improving the lives of all road users. He said, “As a company that wants to create excellence not just for ourselves but for our customers, our business partners, and country, we remain committed to this initiative, which takes a major step forward today.”
