COLOMBO: Sri Lanka is in talks with China to import hybrid buses to upgrade the island’s public transport sector. State Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Ashoka Abeysinghe said that he was in discussions with Chinese companies which manufacture hydrogen powered buses and hybrid buses and the procurement plan to purchase the buses had been finalised.

The minister said he hopes to open the tenders in the coming 28 weeks. I went to China a couple of months ago and visited the Chinese companies. We are looking at hybrid buses as we do not have enough charging stations for electric buses,” Abeysinghe added.
