Moving on from Anuradhapura to Pollonaruwa

What's the bets way to get from Anuradhapura to Pollonaruwa by public transport. Are there aircon busses and where can you catch them?

Hi there,

Only non-AC bus. Catch at bus stand. Not certain whether direct bus, you might have to transfer in Habarana.

All the best,

Hi,

There are non a/c busses leaving every one hour. It is 110 km. So it'll take 3 hours and will stop for a break as well. It is one direct bus.

Air con not really needed as windows are all open. Never got too hot. Got really cold on the air-conned buses. Only thing that is important is getting a seat, which you should do as the bus will most likely originate in Anuradhapura bus station.

Try and get a through bus, it is just a luggage hassle to change in Habarana.

there are direct buses from Anuradhapura to Kaduruwela and many more go pass Polonnaruwa such as A'pura - ampara, A'pura - Mahiyangana , No need to worry there are plenty of buses.
