The Podujana Private Bus Operators' Association (PPBOA) today said they were in discussion with the government not to abolish the Semi Luxury bus service suggesting it to operate on long-distance night services.
Addressing a media conference today, PPBOA President Sampath Rajitha said the Association had decided to provide luxury bus services more efficiently to facilitate the passengers from next year.
“The people always request a luxury bus service and discussions are in progress with the government to implement the service within the cities,” Mr Rajitha said.
He said that the semi-luxury bus service would be possible to operate on more than 200-kilometre distance travel, to minimise its cost.
“The Super Luxury bus service should not be abolished because it attracts more passengers while providing service at nights,” he added. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
