The Transport Ministry has decided to import buses from India to add to the country’s existing fleet of buses that travel on long distance routes.
The Ministry is to import 100 new buses from India for the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB).
SLTB Chairman, M.D. Bandusena has told the media that the government was looking at importing buses at Rs. 4 million each and an order has already been placed for them.
The cost of the buses is to be met with the monies earned by the SLTB through its revenue.
