Life-1-11Civil Aviation and Transport Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva yesterday launched an application called ‘SLTB express e-service’ which allows passengers to make online reservations on long-distance buses.   


The minister said passengers could make use of the facility to reserve their seats on long-distance buses leaving from the Colombo depot.   


“The app can be installed into mobile phones and computers. After an online booking, passengers need to show the seat number to the bus conductor who will then issue an e-ticket. This service should also be introduced to private buses through the National Transport Commission. However, a sum of Rs.80 will be deducted as service charge for online reservations. I propose to distribute uniforms to bus drivers and conductors using profits earned by SLTB,” he said.   


Deputy Minster of Transport, Ashok Abeysinghe, Ministry Secretary G.S. Vithanage and SLTB Chairman Ramal Siriwardane also attended the ceremony.
