Free travel passes to be cancelled from February Featured

The passes issued to media personnel and artistes for free travel will be cancelled from February 01, say private bus owners.

President of their association Gemunu Wijeratne says they are incurring a loss of around Rs. 500,000 a day from these passes.

The provincial passenger transport authorities have issued these free passes.

However, the free passes issued by the southern province passenger transport authority will continue, says Wijeratne.

He notes that they obtained an order from the Supreme Court in 2010 against the issuing of free travel passes.
