Colombo Bandaranaike Airport Public Bus Recommendations


 
IHateTaxis.com recommends the Colombo Bandaranaike Airport public bus.

Note that some Bandaranaike Airport buses do not go as far as the Fort station and stop at the bus depot, which is about a 5 minute walk from the station. Others go via the depot to Fort station and then double back to the bus depot. Once you reach Colombo Fort, you can get a three-wheeler (tuk-tuk) to get to your destination. You will pay a little premium for catching a tuk-tuk from the bus station or outside Fort station (on the main road so there will be a choice of tuk-tuks) but it should not cost more than LKR 150 to go to hotels near Galle Face such as Cinnamon Grand, Taj or Galle Face Hotel. This is the cheapest way to get into Colombo, but will take some effort and time.

The Bandaranaike International Airport bus (number 187) to Colombo Fort/Pattaya terminal leaves from the CMB Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport bus depot. You can get there by free shuttle or walk for about 10-15 minutes. To catch the free shuttle to the Bandaranaike International Airport bus, come out of the terminal, turn left and walk all the way to the end of the building. You will not find any signs, so be sure to ask airport personnel (and ignore that they might tell you to take a taxi).


The 187 bus costs LKR 40 (although the bus collector may try to make tourists pay more 'for luggage' etc) to Colombo Fort. The journey into Colombo Fort could take anything between an hour and fifteen to two hours. The bus will stop at major towns en route . Ask the conductor to tell you when the bus gets to the Fort station (as opposed to the Colombo bus depot).
