Sri Lanka will lift a series of fees charged from inter-provincial private bus operators from March to December 2020 to reduce cost during a Covid-19 epidemic as buses are required to carry fewer passengers, the state information office said.

The cabinet of ministers had approved a Ministry of Transport proposal to waive permit updating charges, penalties, tender charges, logbook charges, access permit charges and temporary permit charges for expressways.

Sri Lanka’s private bus operators have asked for a ticket price increase or a diesel subsidy as they are required to carry passengers according to the number of seats or with a gap between seats.
