Sri Lanka Railways

The Sri Lanka Railway Department has increased its ticket fares from midnight tomorrow (July 22), said Dhammika Jayasundara, the General Manager of Sri Lanka Railways.

Meanwhile the relevant Gazette notification on the train fare revision, issued by the Minister of transport Bandula Gunawardena, has been published.

As such, the train fares will be increased by an amount equivalent to half the bus fare for the identical distance.

According to Sri Lanka Railways, with the expenses incurred on fuel, it would not be possible to increase train trips.
