Sri Lanka Introduces Bus Ticket Booking Via Mobiles

21st June 2011, www.dailynews.lk

The National Transport Commission together with Dialog Axiata present the future of public transportation services in Sri Lanka with the introduction of the Mobile Bus Ticketing facility, allowing passengers to pre-book and purchase tickets through the mobile phone.

This innovative new service is implemented under the purview of the National Transport Commission, and seats could be reserved through this system on private transport buses plying identified long-haul routes. Colombo - Badulla, Colombo - Ampara and Colombo - Kataragama are the routes available with this service at the outset, and this would be extended to other long distance routes islandwide in the nearterm.

"The use of technology to enhance the passenger transport experience is a significant step in our national development drive as espoused in the Mahinda Chinthana. This effort will increase passenger convenience, and I'm pleased to have given lead to a programme of this manner.

There will no doubt be numerous challenges, but the National Transport Commission together with Dialog will be able to overcome these," Private Transport Minister C B Rathnayake," stated.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, Dialog Axiata Group Chief Executive, Dr. Hans Wijayasuriya, said: "Dialog strives constantly to empower every aspect of Sri Lankan life, and we acknowledge the commitment and encouragement received by the

minister and his staff to make the convergence of technology into the transportation sectors a reality."
