Three-wheeler fares will be reduced by Rs. 20 per kilometre in line with the fuel price revision, the All Island Three-wheeler Drivers’ Association announced today.

President of the Association Lalith Dharmasekera said that thereby all three-wheeler drivers have been requested to charge Rs. 100 for the first kilometre, followed by Rs. 80 from the second kilometre.

Stating that he can only speak on behalf of three-wheelers with meters, he said that such three-wheelers were currently operating under various fares.

He further said this was due to three-wheelers being provided with a weekly fuel quota of five litres, resulting in them having to operate using fuel purchased for a higher price.

Lalith Dharmasekera further said three-wheeler fares can be further reduced if the fuel quota is increased in line with the fuel price reduction. (NewsWire)
