Inter-provincial bus, train services suspended until August 1

Passenger Transport State Minister Dilum Amunugama said that the National Operation Centre for Prevention of COVID- 19 Outbreak has decided to suspend all inter-provincial bus and train services until August 1 from today.

The travel ban has been partially relaxed only to enable the public transportation of essential services workers earlier.

“But it was found that some other people other than the essential service staff were using the transport services ignoring health guidelines.

That is why this decision was taken,” he added.“The COVID Committee said that the COVID vaccination programme is about to be completed by August for people above 30 years old and this would help to control the spreading of the new COVID variants outside Colombo,” he said.

“Accordingly, the limited bus services operated so far will be suspended from today,” he said.
