Islandwide private bus operations will drop to 10 per cent today (29) due to the ongoing fuel crisis, said President of the Ceylon Private Bus Owners Association Gemunu Wijeratne.
Despite recommendations from certain bus associations to increase the bus fares by 30 per cent and the minimum fare up to Rs. 40, there had been disagreements between the unions pertaining to such revisions. The discussions with Transport Minister Bandula Gunawardena in this regard yesterday were halted in the middle.
However, recommendations pertaining to bus fare revisions will be handed over today, said the National Transport Commission.
