Just take over all the private buses and hand them over to the SLTB. Use those executive presidency powers that the government is so fond of for something useful to the country.

Route No 156 which was plying between Dehiwela and Nugegoda which was serving the public of specially people staying down Anderson Road was served inadequately where passengers had to wait sometimes as long as half an hour. Now it has become worse with the extension to Baddegana. First of all they should address the present problems instead of deepening the crisis. The extended run is okay as long as there is a bus at least every 15 minutes. There is a distance of 1.6 kms along Anderson road and to walk is difficult and the three wheelers have a field day when the buses break down frequently due to the old buses in use.

If there is an over-supply of private buses, then why does route 993 between Maharagama and Malabe go at a snail's pace on the High Level Road and then proceed at a dangerous, irresponsible speed till it gets to Vidyale Handiye?
If there is an over-supply of buses, why does route 119 between Maharagama and Dehiwala go very fast and then sit for 5 - 8 minutes in Boralesgamuwa, and vice versa?
Why are the 993 buses packed to EXTREME overcrowding in the evening rush hour, if there is an abundance of private buses?

Kalubowila has a major access problem for people coming from Fort while Kalubowila hospital is a very important place in Sri Lanka.
What about introducing a bus from fort to Kalubowila.
and vice versa.

And why are the beggars and salesmen back on the 119 buses?
