The Ministry of Internal Transport says measures have been taken to implement a night bus service which will operate from main cities to rural areas.

Subject Minister Ranjith Maddumabandara said that although there was a major issue concerning transport services during the night over the recent past, a night bus service is already in operation from Colombo to suburbs.

He further stated that there were long distance bus services operating during the nights, but that there is a major scarcity of buses that travel short distances from the main cities to rural areas. He stated:

“However, we have commenced a night bus service which operates from Colombo rural areas in its suburbs.”

He added that the Ministry of Internal Transport is also taking measures to implement a night bus service from 10 p.m. onwards. He further stated that that bus service will operate from main cities as Galle, Kandy and Kurunegala to rural areas beginning April 1.
