Public Transport, Sri Lanka

Kids in train
Public bus

Colombo Fort is the transport hub for Sri Lanka. The bus pictured here is the sort which plies all over the island. Most of those I travelled in were bone shakers and very ancient. They are frequently packed and uncomfortable but a great way to meet the locals. Inter-city fares are dirt cheap but drivers are reckless. often overtaking dangerously.

I found the train safer but slower.


  1. And folks are complaining about our transport system.

  2. Without any disrespect for Sri Lanka,whose circumstances are different due to war, our transport system can be considered fantastic.
