    Hi fellow travellers!

    Me and my boyfriend are in Arugam Bay and have our flight back from Negombo/Colombo on the 14th of August. Our flight is in the evening so we would need to be there around 18:00.

    We are flexible with times though if anybody wants to share a taxi?

    Please contact me. (
    The more the merrier 🙂

  • Hi. I’m landing in Colombo mid-afternoon on Monday 5th October 2015. Have been looking at the bus options to travel overnight straight from Colombo to just north of Arugam Bay (Lighthouse Point). I’ve been told not to travel alone by train at night as a solo female traveller. Anybody interested in sharing a taxi that afternoon/evening? (Or joining me on the no. 98 bus, since I see here that the A/C buses have been stopped??)

  • Sadly.
    In their wisdom the Government has suspended the Arugam Bay a/c Luxury Bus Service to/from Colombo.

  • Hey,
    wondering if the buses definitely run every night now and if so do you need to book or can you just rock up on the day?

  • I used the night bus from Abay to Colombo last year and it was great!
    I would like to use the bus from Colombo to Abay also this year but I find different information about the departing time: is it confirmed the departure at 21:00pm everyday from Pettah bus station in Colombo?


  • There are plenty of regular, non-air conditioned Government as well as private buses.
    Every day & night from the Pettah bus ‘stand’.
    Low cost – but not much comfort.
    Transit time about 8 hrs./ night – 9 daytime

  • Is there any other alternative to this service from Colombo or Mattala airports?
    even without air conditioning…

  • Sadly the very good air-conditioned bus service was stopped.
    There is a demand for it, but we are informed that there was some local opposition.
    Maybe from other taxi operators.
    That is why we try to promote the Taxi Sharing scheme here.

  • hello
    does this service still run from colombo to arugam??

  • I would ike to know more information about your air conditioned bus from Colombo to Aragum Bay. Is it necessary to book in advance and how much does it cost?

  • Hello,
    do you know if the service is still running/running again? as flo said, the numbers are not working and i can’t any information online…
    thanks a lot for your reponse!!


    Let me know where from I can book the ticket for Pottuveli from Colombo.
    0712 835 843

  • Hey there !
    Thats sounds great but does everybody knows if it is still running now ? i tried all the phone numbers and i got no answers at all…

  • Hi Michael,
    Please enlarge the yellow bus photo.
    The numbers are all there.
    When you have established if they have resumed the schedule, please let us know as well.
    Last few weeks this service was suspended, as there has been too little demand

  • This luxury bus service looks great!!
    Is there an email rather than a phone number to book?
    And is there a good transport link from Colombo back to the airport for a group (say 4 people)with surfboards and luggage?
    Thanks in advance

  • WOWWOWOWOWO,I can do weekend trips to Abay now! Is it windy?

  • I hear the trip is only Rs./ 700 ($6,30) and they even drop and collect you from just about anywhere in Arugam

  • That’s just under $7 / trip ($6,80) !
    Aircon luxury. One hotel night saved.
    Can’t be a bad deal.

  • hi this really good idea . thank you so much.

  • That is what AbaY needs!
    Good cheap transport, regular service.

  • A superb idea! So many tourists come to Sri Lanka but never make it over to the east because of the lack of affordable transport. I hope this idea becomes reality one day.

    Keep up the good work!
