Boost for public transportation

The Transport and Civil Aviation Ministry has taken steps to procure 75 new passenger compartments and 20 flat beds for Sri Lanka Railways as well as 37 new super luxury buses for the Sri Lanka Transport Board.

Accordingly, the 75 new passenger compartments and 20 flat beds will be deployed in the upcountry railway line, which will be imported under the financial support of the Indonesia Exim Bank (LPEI).

The 37 super luxury buses will be purchased on lease.

These decisions were made to improve public transport facilities to provide an efficient service to commuters.

The Cabinet of Ministers has approved the memorandum presented by Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Arjuna Ranatunga in this regard.
