Transport Services Report Revenue Boost During April New Year Festival

April 13, Colombo (LNW): The Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) has reported a significant increase in daily income, reaching Rs. 25 million, attributed to the special bus service implemented for the April New Year festival. Starting April 5, the SLTB enhanced its service by deploying 200 additional buses to accommodate the surge in passengers traveling to their hometowns for the festive period. Panduka Swarnahansa, the Deputy General Manager of SLTB, highlighted this increase as a testament to the effective management and provision of transportation services during high-demand periods.

In parallel, the Road Development Authority (RDA) has observed a 10% rise in its revenue, spurred by the increased traffic flow associated with the festival. The RDA anticipates further increases in revenue as the festivities continue until April 15, 2024.

Additionally, the Railway Department has contributed to easing the transportation rush by introducing 12 extra train services specifically for the festival season, which will run until April 15, 2024. This coordinated effort across various transportation agencies underscores their commitment to ensuring efficient and adequate transportation for the public during one of Sri Lanka’s most celebrated times of the year.
