The Lanka Private Bus Owners Association says 50 percent of buses will be in operation today (1).
Speaking to NewsRadio, President of the Association Gemunu Wijeratne said issues related to obtaining fuel have not been resolved yet.
Wijeratne said a proposal was submitted to the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation to allocate a filling station in each city for buses to obtain fuel twice a week.
Wijeratne noted fuel is not provided in a stringent manner through depots of the Sri Lanka Transport Board.
He added the proposal to obtain fuel twice a week through either the QR code system or another method is necessary as only 15% of buses can function on fuel provided by the SLTB.
