Private bus services to stop from next week


The Lanka Private Bus Owners’ Association (LPBOA) has decided to withdraw services from next Monday (06) as no proper measures have been taken to provide adequate diesel for buses.

Chairman Gemunu Wijeratne said that buses operated thus far to avoid inconveniencing students sitting for the GCE Ordinary Level examination.

However, bus services will be withdrawn next week if the fuel crisis is not resolved by then.

Wijeratne alleged that despite several rounds of discussions with the relevant authorities regarding the said crisis, no solutions have been proposed yet.
