Bus companies say that although fuel prices dropped by Rs. Five per litre , it is not possible to reduce bus fares at this time.

 All island private bus companies' federation general secretary Anjana Priyanjith told our news team, that as a result of the pricing of spare parts having increased as a consequence of the value of the rupee  falling against US dollar, his company's executive committee had taken this decision.

Lanka Private Bus Owners' Company chairman Gemunu Wijeratne also told our news team that it was not possible to reduce bus fares.

However, chairman of the Lanka self – employment professionals' national three-wheeler Company Sunil Jayawardhana ,said that his company hoped to reduce the fare for the first kilometre, down to Rs. 50.

 The Joint national three-wheeler drivers and industrialists' Society general  secretary Rohana Perera said that due to the increase in the price of three-wheeler spare parts, fare could not be reduced.
