    There is a free shuttle bus from the airport to Colombo. Very easy to find it. The conductor shouted from the doorway: "Colombo, Colombo!" Believe me, the more interesting than a taxi.

    There is NO free shuttle bus from the airport to Colombo. Bus 187 departs from the road just outside the airport gate about 2 times an hour. I believe the fare to Colombo is still about LKR 100.

    Bus 187 is free to Katunayake Bus Station, but not to Colombo. Would be interesting to know WHEN you took that bus.
