A new luxury city bus service has been launched as a solution to traffic congestion. Minister Kumara Welgama said they have plans to implement this new luxury service countrywide which initially centres the Colombo City.
Minister Kumara Welgama said they were introducing a super luxury bus service with new technology. What they needed was the operation of the bus in time and also for the public to be aware of the arrival of the bus. This bus will operate for one month within the Colombo city. Thereafter they will look into its progress.
Under the first stage, the luxury bus service between Colombo and Moratuwa was launched under the patronage of the Minister. The intention of the Transport Ministry is to operate this luxury bus service on six other routes after considering the progress of the programme. It is operative for the convenience of office workers and those entering the city in private vehicles. The Transport Ministry said the expenditure incurred by a private vehicle entering Colombo can be minimized through this programme.
