The bus unions say that bus fares should be increased with immediate effect as fuel prices rise.

Accordingly, the annual revision of bus fares should be made on June 30 and a 35% revision of bus fares is required due to the increase in fuel prices, says the General Secretary of the All Ceylon Private Bus Owners’ Association Anjana Priyanjith. He said that this amendment should be implemented from tomorrow (27) and if not, buses will be discontinued.

The General Secretary of the All Ceylon Private Bus Owners’ Association Anjana Priyanjith further stated that the minimum bus fare which is currently 32 rupees should be increased to 40 rupees.
