Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) has received a record income of more than Rs. 120 million during the private bus operators’ strike on Friday (02) and 128 SLTB buses had been damaged by the unruly individuals, who joined the strike, sources said.

SLTB Chairman Ramal Siriwardene said the average income of the SLTB per day was Rs. 72 million and that the earnings on Friday had increased by 60 percent.

The Chairman who commended the SLTB staff said the dedicated services of the employees including drivers and conductors who took a particular interest in their duty to provide maximum transport facilities even at the peril of their life, was praiseworthy and deserved the gratitude of the Government.

He said it was the public funds that would be spent to repair the 128 SLTB buses had been damaged by the unruly individuals. (Atula Bandara)

    Better to cancel the private bus licences and introduce more SLTB buses which will be more praise worthy, private buses has become a menance and unruly attitude.

    It is time that the Government should invest on an efficient underground rapid transit system connecting main cities to Colombo. This will minimize the traffic in roads by atleast 60% and make thousands of people's lives much easier.

    SLTB always run at profit. Last regime's corrupt deeds ate that up.
