Getting to and from Colombo Katanayake International can be a bit of a pain, especially if you’re backpacking or on a budget.

There is a new highway, and subsequently an ‘express’ bus route that will take you from the Airport bus terminal to Fort in the commercial centre of colombo. From there you’ll need to either take a threewheeler or taxi to your destination. You can view the express bus route here.

You can take a taxi from the airport arrivals lounge, which costs around Rs2900/- to the centre of Colombo, with an extra Rs300/- to use the highway, which cuts the journey time considerably.

Kangaroo Cabs are currently offering an airport pick up for only Rs1700/- click here for more information

We have built this taxi share application in case you want to try and reduce the cost by sharing the journey with fellow travellers. It’s a simple system: you enter your email, arrival date and time and destination in the form and if we find a match within three hours of your arrival time we’ll create an email chain between you so that you can ‘e-meet’ and decide whether or not you’d like to share a taxi. You can then decide whether to book a taxi in advance or use one of the airport taxis.

Conditions etc:

Your data will be removed from the database once your arrival date has passed, and we promise not to harvest your email or use it to spam you with un wanted emails!

Since we are providing this service free of charge we can take no responsibility for you or your journey from the airport.

If you have any feedback or suggestions, please enter it in the form below and we’ll be sure to get back to you.
