Inter-Prov. bus services to resume on Tuesday

2020-05-24 at 12:00

Minister of Transport Management Services Mahinda Amaraweera says as approval has been granted for travel across districts, with the exception of the Colombo and Gampaha districts from Tuesday, inter-provincial bus services can also resume from Tuesday onwards.

The Minister stated that inter-provincial bus services will accordingly resume strictly in accordance with health services guidelines.

He stated all necessary approval in this regard has therefore been granted for buses, adding that preparations have been made for Sri Lanka Transport Board buses to resume said services.

Passengers will only be transported according to the number of seats available, whilst both the Police and the National Transport Commission will monitor whether the restrictions are being adhered to.

However Minister Amaraweera noted approval is yet to be granted for bus services to resume in the Colombo and Gampaha districts.
