* Sri Lanka's private bus owners to discuss bus fare hike with minister
Mon, Feb 25, 2013, 09:49 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 25, Colombo: Private bus owners in Sri Lanka will discuss the increase in bus fares place following the latest fuel price hike with the Private Transport Minister tomorrow.

The Private Bus Owners' Association (PBOA) says that a bus fare hike was the only option since the authorities had not responded to the diesel subsidy demanded by them.

Head of the PBOA, Gemunu Wijerathna has said that a bus fare hike was the only option given the current situation.

Private Transport Ministry Secretary Victor Samaraweera has noted that the future course of action in relation to a bus fare hike would be decided after Tuesday's meeting between the private bus owners and Private Transport Minister C.B. Ratnayake.

The National Transport Commission (NTC) has denied permission for a bus fare hike any time soon.
