The National Transport Commission says that fuel will not be provided for buses that are not added to the running. The director general of the said commission Nilan Miranda says that priority should be given to the interests of the passengers.
The Director General also says that facilities have been provided for all inter-provincial buses to get fuel from the Bastion Mawatha Bus Terminal in Pettah.
A special program has been prepared for the safety of buses and employees and relevant instructions have been given to all institutions including the police. Therefore, Nilan Miranda requests the bus owners to add all the buses to the service for the convenience of the passengers.
