The Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) will launch two super luxury bus services along Arugam Bay-Colombo and Pasikuda-Colombo routes from this week.
SLTB Chief Operations Superintendent said the bus fare will be Rs. 1,100 per person on the Colombo-Arugam Bay route while the bus fare per person would be Rs. 1,000 on the Colombo-Pasikuda route.
Meanwhile, a new supper luxury bus service was introduced on the Colombo-Badulla route last week the bus fare per passenger is Rs. 750 per journey.
Super luxury buses already operate on the Kandy-Kurunegala, Kalpitiya-Kandy, Kalpitiya-Colombo, Colombo-Puttalam and Colombo-Chilaw routes.
The number of buses will be increased according to the needs in the future. He said that buses of a high standard were purchased by the SLTB with passenger safety in mind. Well-experienced drivers and luxury coaches are a must to operate transport services on long distance routes. We have trained drivers in this regard.
We plan to add more super luxury buses to the main towns and cities including the North and East on both expressways in due course
