The Chairman of National Transport Commission M. A. P. Hemachandra says that a proposal regarding the bus fare increase will be submitted for tomorrow’s (May 15) cabinet meeting.
 
The NTC Chairman said that a special discussion would be held at the commission today in relation to this matter.
 
The bus unions are demanding to increase the bus fares as a result of recent fuel price hike.
 
The Secretary of the All Ceylon Private Bus Association Anjana Priyanjith said that bus fares should be increased by 20% to match the fuel price hike.
 
He said otherwise they would launch a strike on 17th of this month.
 
However, the President of the Lanka Private Bus Owners' Association, Gemunu Wijerathna said that the revision of bus fares should be carried out by the National Transport Commission.
 
Meanwhile, the NTC said when the annual bus fare hike is implemented by 1st of July, they would consider the fuel price hike.
