Taxi/Cab - Private Transportation
There are plenty of Taxi/Cab Companies in Sri Lanka, and that too majority are metered. In many areas, just a phone call away you will get a taxi to your door step.
Many metered Taxies and Three Wheelers are available on call and/or hail from the road. Some of the metered Taxi/Three Wheeler Companies you may contact are:

Three Wheeler - Private Transportation
This is a perfect transportation for a short and quick journey. Their rates are quite reasonable and of course less than a Taxi/Cab.
Having said that, make sure you always try to get a metered Three Wheeler to avoid over charged.
1. In both cases i.e. Taxies & Three Wheelers strongly advice to use metered Taxies and metered Three Wheelers, if possible, to avoid any overcharges.
2. Please also note that on some roads and in some towns/areas there may not have metered Three Wheelers. In that case, make sure to agree on a rate before setting off.
