No bus fare hike – Lanka Private Bus Owners Association

Sep 24, 2010 10:57:41 AM - itnnews.lk

The Lanka Private Bus Owners Association has given a firm assurance that it will not hike fares. Its President Gemunu Wijeratne gave this assurance at a media briefing today.

Mr. Wijeratne said certain groups had said that it would stage a strike with regard to bus fares. However, they would not stage a strike on fares. He emphasized that there was no need to hinder the bus crews or embarrass the commuters. They had problems. But hiking fares will not solve them. The President of the Association added that what they needed at this juncture was the formulation of streamlined time schedules.
