The Lanka Private Bus Owners Association states that it opposes the statement made by the National Transportation Commission with regards to bus fare revisions due to take place this July.

 

Chairman of the LPBOA Gamunu Wijerathna expressing his views to our news team noted that his association has already focussed their attention on obtaining a fuel subsidy instead of a revision to bus fares.
