Minister Bandula Gunawardena told reporters that people using bicycles, motorcycles, cars, SUVs and other private vehicles can reach the Multimodal Centers in Kadawatha, Katubedda, and Makumbura, park and lock their vehicles and then board a luxury bus to Colombo.

The service will begin at 6:30 AM on Wednesday, 15th June 2022 will continue until 8:30 AM with buses available every 10 minutes.

Again, these buses will be in operation from 4 PM to 6PM from Colombo to the respective Multimodal Centers every 15 minutes.

The Minister further said that two new filling stations will be established at the Makumbura Multimodal Center & the Bastian Mawatha Bus Station to provide fuel for Private Buses, SLTB Buses, School Buses, and School Vans.
