Taxi Services In Jamaica | by Venesha Johnson, Associate Writer

Getting around Jamaica, from town to town, city to city can be a bit tedious sometimes. Public buses and taxis are the main methods of transportation, which can involve waiting in busy transportation centres for a pretty long time, rushing to grab a seat and the uncomfortableness of squeezing yourself in a tightly enclosed space with quite a few other passengers.
