Bus operations likely to drop by 50 per cent from tomorrow
Diesel is not provided enough to operate passenger buses and bus operations, therefore, have been hampered significantly, revealed President of the Private Bus Owners’ Association Gemunu Wijeratne.
The Union Chief revealed that in the last three days, the supply of diesel through the depots belonging to the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) was not carried out properly and accordingly, it was not possible to carry out bus operations in full today.
In the backdrop, chances are high that the bus operations may drop by 50 per cent from tomorrow, Wijeratne warned.
The Union Chief urged the authorities to foster a formal mechanism to supply fuel in order to operate the buses in full capacity and to pay attention to this matter immediately.
