Our prime objective is to provide a quality road passenger transport service to the people in the North Western province to enhance the economy of Sri Lanka by developing the economy and service sector in the North Western Province. The entire process of a country is based on the transport sector in the country. The life blood of a country is transportation and our responsibility is to protect and enhance the transportation field with the modern technology.
The Road Passenger Transport Authority was established in 1996 with the objective of providing a quality transport service to the people of the North Western Province. Since then six chairmen have served in the Authority and I am glad to being the seventh chairman of the authority now. I consider this as a valuable opportunity to serve the people in the North Western Province as well as to provide the benefits to the entire Sri Lankan people.
During the past four years we could achieve several targets of the Road Passenger Transport Authority in the North Western Province. The most important victory we achieved is that we could resided in a permeant place owned by the Authority. Earlier we had to shift from place to place on rent basis as we had not our own place. Now we are working in our own place and I consider this opportunity as a gift received by all the road passengers as well as by bus owners.
The project of “Sisu Seriya” has been implemented successfully by obtaining the assistance of related parties with the objective of providing a quality and productive and efficient service to the school children coming from remote villages to the school in the town in the North Western Province. The concession received by the low income families from this project is immeasurable. Further, the project of “Gemi Seriya” has been implemented for the benefit of villagers with the cooperation of the National Transport Commission by identifying the transport issues of the villagers in remote areas. Similarly, we are taking measures to start the project of “Nisi Seriya” for the benefit of road passengers who face several transport issues during the night time. Further a luxury office transport service for remote areas has been implemented for private and public sector employees by identifying the exigencies of services. I hope that the passengers have time to get some relax and get ready to work next day in a novelty way. Presently, I am successfully enjoy the result of the deeds carried out within the past four years.
