SLTB buses on expressways to operate without conductors from July 01

(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) – The Ministry of Transport has decided to operate Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) buses on all expressways without conductors from July 01.

Accordingly, tickets will be issued only at the beginning of the journey for SLTB buses plying on expressways.

The decision to issue tickets at the beginning of the journey has been taken after uncovering a racket where fake tickets were given to 34 passengers on a SLTB bus on Southern Expressway for the Matara-Makumbura journey for which a ticket costs Rs. 1200.

The Criminal Investigations Department is already conducting the investigations into the incident.

The Ministry of Transport is also working to introduce e-tickets for all local buses and trains in the next three months.
