Private buses can operate only if sufficient fuel is provided – Gemunu Wijeratne


The Lanka Private Bus Owners’ Association (LPBOA) says that if CEYPETCO stations prioritise private buses, they will be able to operate 50% of their buses by the next day.

Chairman Gemunu Wijeratne said that the fuel provided by depots coming under the purview of the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) is insufficient.

He further said that due to the fuel crisis, only a maximum of 15% of private buses have been able to operate.
