Park and Ride City Bus project to commence on January 15

The Park and Ride City Bus project will commence from January 15 under the patronage of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa with the aim of easing the traffic congestion experienced on roads during the morning and evening peak hours.

Under this system, people could reach the city of Colombo from the Makumbura Multimodal Centre-Kottawa via four routes.

Vehicle Regulation, Bus Transport Services and Train Compartments, and Motor Car Industry State Minister Dilum Amunugama said that the workforce travelling to work in their own vehicles will be convinced enough to use the public transport system.

He added that the Park and Ride system is the system that has been introduced for the people to engage in their day today activities without entering Colombo City in their vehicles.

People who wish to travel to Colombo in their vehicles can use the allocated parking areas and may utilise the air-conditioned luxury bus services to reach the city and return to their parking places after attending to their work in the same manner,” he added.

He further said that Bus service will commence at 6 a.m.
