    • I believe the buses are running. Try calling 077 287 2877 for more information.

  1. Are there no more buses leaving from Fort to Matara? All getting shifted to Makumbura now that the new terminal is open?

    • I got a bus from Matara to Fort two days ago, so they are still running

  2. Suggestion :

    1. Introduce at-least one bus per day from Dehiwala, Nugegoda


    As of 1 April 2019, these buses leave Colombo from MAKUMBURA BUS STAND (no longer from Maharagama).

  4. Hello Guys,

    Just a short question: according to the description a one way road from Maharagama to Matara costs 420 LKR. If I book a ticket, it is around 1200 LKR. Can somebody tell me, what the difference is? The type of the bus or the pre booking? Thanks! 🙂

    • The latest price info we have is Rs550 for that journey if you buy on the bus. I don’t think there’s any difference in the busses…

  5. Hello! How long it takes from Maharagama to Matara by Bus No. EX 1-1? Thanks

  6. Can I book a seat in the morning of the particular day I want to travel.
