Parents to pay 30 per cent for student ’season tickets’


A proposal to make parents pay 30% of the bus fees for the monthly season tickets issued to students has been proposed. 

The Minister of Transport and Highways and Media and the Cabinet Spokesman, Bandula Gunawardena, announced this at the weekly Cabinet briefing today (May 30). 
He explained the economic situation and stated that the entire concessionary  season tickets for school children would have to be withheld if part of the fare is not charged from the parents. 
"However, we have considered the education of school children, the country's future and decided to pay 70%", the Minister stated.
