Semi luxury private bus fleet soon

Apparently inspired by the Southern Expressway SLTB bus service, private bus owners yesterday decided to introduce semi-luxury buses to replace normal buses on all urban feeder routes around the country to provide a fast and convenient transport for passengers.
The Lanka Private Bus Owners Association (LPBOA) said SLTB buses on the expressway which charged Rs.400 were in high demand due to the swift and efficient transportation provided by the service.
LPBOA President Gemunu Wijeyratne said private luxury buses charged half that amount at Rs.230 to travel from Galle to Colombo.
“We can see the exorbitant demand for these luxury bus services and we hope to introduce semi-luxury buses to improve our services and to meet the needs of the people,” Wijeyratne said. The LPBOA made a request to the National Transport Commission yesterday to introduce semi-luxury buses to replace the normal buses.
He said the association also hoped to discuss with the government to remove the tender procedures for bus routes and introduce a new system to enable anyone to purchase a permit to prevent alleged abuse of permits. (Olindhi Jayasundere)
