Bus fares to reduce from midnight today


Bus fares are scheduled to be reduced with effect from midnight today (04), the National Transport Commission (NTC) announced.

The decision was taken owing to the recent drop in prices of diesel, NTC Director Dr. Nilan Miranda explained.

Accordingly, the price reduction will be applicable to both private buses and those operated by the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB). However, bus fares for those travelling along Expressways will remain unchanged.

The percentage by which bus fares will be reduced will be announced later today, Dr. Miranda said.
