The Lanka Private Bus Owners Association claims buses will operate as usual today.
President Gemunu Wijeratne said 50 percent of buses will be in operation.
He said a large number of buses have ceased operations since the COVID-19 pandemic, adding that only 7,000 buses of a fleet of 13,000 are currently in operation owing to the present situation.
Wijeratne said they will ensure the smooth operation of buses without inconveniencing commuters, despite the present crisis.
He said bus operations however will be limited on the 1st of May.
