The Sri Lanka Transport Board depot in Kataragama achieves a record income. The Transport Minister said this was possible following the special bus service launched in view of the Ruhunu Kataragama Devala Annual Perahera.
The average daily income of the Kataragama Depot is 450 thousand rupees. However, due to the buses deployed for the Esala Festival it had been possible to earn a daily income of more than one million rupees.
Minister Kumara Welgama inspected the bus service which was operative in Kataragama. The depot is operating 52 buses daily.
