Colombo (LNW): The semi-luxury bus service will be removed from operation after May, 2023, in consideration of a large number of complaints with regard to semi-luxury buses, announced the National Transport Commission.
Accordingly, all semi-luxury buses currently in operation will be converted to either normal service or a luxury bus service, said Commission Chief Nilan Miranda said.
He added that the transformation process will not require any payment, and thus will be done free of charge.
As of now, about 430 semi-luxury buses are in operation, and owners of 20 buses have made a request for the transformation, Miranda further revealed.
All bus owners willing to follow the process have been instructed to do so before May 31, 2023, the Commission Chief noted.
