Semi-luxury bus service to be scrapped from December

The National Transport Commision (NTC) has decided to scrap the semi-luxury bus service from December.

According to the NTC several complaints had been received with regards to the semi-luxury bus in the recent past.

One of the complaints is that semi-luxury bus operators often load passengers beyond the seating limit despite the extra charge on the ticket.

As a result the NTC has decided to scrap the semi-luxury bus service from the end of December this year. (Colombo Gazette)
