About Rs 7500. Nearly USD 75.00. You can use southern highway to Galle. There are buses running from Colombo to Galle on highway. One way ticket is about USD 4.00

Yes 7,500 is good to Colombo town, but seeing the other postings of Shital he probably means airport.

The E-way bus is great but brings you only to Kottawa or Maharagama. From K it's still 75-90 mins and from M still 60-75 mins to central Colombo (Fort). If you need to be in Colombo Fort, the 'coastal road buses' taking 3 hours are as fast, and without transfer, as using the E-way bus service. Sadly...

Tnx anyway,

Well, a hired Van from Colombo Fort to Maharagama would cost about Rs. 1000/=. Then take the Express way Bus, which will cost Rs. 400/=... This will allow you to see most of the inland beauty in Sri Lanka...

Also, make sure to use "Metered Taxis or Vans"... That will make sure you pay a genuine price for the services offered... There are many metered taxi services available around the fort area...

You will not find metered taxis at the airport. There are 6 travel counters in arrivals hall at the airport. No taxi ranks outside the airport.
