Two buses will be plying between Verugal to Koonitheivu. The distance between Koonitheivu and Verugal is about forty km. Bus service is covering the villages, Pattalipuram, Nallur, Upooral, Cheenanveli, Ilankaithuraimuhathuwaram and other hamlets between Koonitheivu and Verugal. This service would benefit about twenty thousand people in the area, sources said.

State and other transport companies are not conducting bus services within the LTTE held territory in Trincomalee district. Hence the bus service inaugurated by the Thamileelam Transport Board has been hailed by the people of the villages as a boon solving their transport difficulties, said Mr.S.Elilan, LTTE Trincomalee district political head addressing the inaugural event, sources said.
