Minimum bus fare reduced to Rs.34


The minimum bus fare will be reduced to Rs.34, with effect from midnight today (04), the National Transport Commission (NTC) announced.

Meanwhile, bus fares are also due to be reduced by 11.14%.

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.
