NTC lethargic in reducing bus fares - Passenger Union

The All Island Bus Passengers’ Association urges the National Transport Commission (NTC) and authorities to decrease the minimum fare to Rs.10 before December 21. Issuing a press release, the Association claimed that the NTC has had a special discussion with the All Island Bus Owners’ Association yesterday and agreed to postpone the revision of the bus fares till December 21.

According to the release, although the price of a diesel litre was reduced by Rs. 19 on three occasions successively, the NTC has failed to pay attention regarding this matter so far.

The Association also accused the NTC of neglecting the passengers’ rights by holding only the discussions with the heads of the Private Bus Associations but, doing nothing for the passengers.

Earlier, the All Island Bus Passengers’ Association performed as the Colombo District Bus Passengers’ Association.
