Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) will commence three super luxury bus services from Colombo via the Southern Expressway and Katunayake Expressway from this month. SLTB Chief Operations Superintendent H. M. Chandrasiri said luxury buses will run from Colombo to Galle, Colombo to Matara, and Colombo to Kuliyapitiya. They will start the journey from Colombo Central Bus Stand. The SLTB has already deployed over 70 super luxury buses to transport passengers on both the Southern and Katunayake Expressways. 
These buses run on the Maharagama-Galle, Maharagama-Matara, Kaduwela-Matara, Kaduwela-Galle, Panadura-Matara, Katunayake-Colombo, Kuliyapitiya-Colombo, Chilaw-Colombo and Ja-ela-Colombo routes. 

The number of buses will be increased according to the needs in the future. Chandrasiri added that high standard buses were purchased by the SLTB with a concern for passenger safety. “Well-experienced drivers and luxury coaches are a must to operate transport services on the expressways and we have trained drivers in this regard,” he said. He said the SLTB earns an average daily income of nearly Rs. 2 million from these super luxury buses. “We plan to add more buses from main towns and cities including the North and East across the country on both expressways in due course,” he added. He said all these super luxury buses in service have very high standards to ensure luxury, comfort and safety of passengers.
