Tue, Jan 1, 2013, 01:29 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 01, Colombo: Private bus operators in Sri Lanka say that the government has failed to implement the proposed combined timetable for private and state owned buses.

Private Bus Owners' Association (PBOA) Head, Gemunu Wijerathna has said that Private Transport Minister C.B. Ratnayake had earlier assured that the combined timetable for private and Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) buses would be implemented from January 1st.

He has noted that although the bus operators have extended their support to the implementation of such a timetable, the authorities have failed to do so.

According to Wijerathna, the combined timetable would resolve many problems faced by the private bus industry.

Meanwhile, Anjana Priyanjith from the All Island Private Bus Owners' Federation (AIPBOF) has said that the inefficiencies of the National Transport Commission (NTC) has resulted in the delay in implementing the combined timetable.
