Colombo Getting around
Getting Around Colombo -
Colombo has a reasonable network of public transport, with buses and trains that link the main city to the satellite towns. Train fares are cheaper than bus fares, but to catch a bus is much easier than to catch a train, so it works out about the same.

Taxis and 3-wheelers can also be hired, although these are more expensive; meters are not often used, so it is best to negotiate and settle on a mutually acceptable price before you start the journey.
