In terms of public transport, you can get to Trinco by either bus or train. Air-con luxury buses from Colombo cost about 150 Rs and takes about 7 hours. The time can be affected if there are roadblocks and police checks but these are pretty infrequent nowadays. Buses also travel between Kandy, Anuradhapura and other major cities. The train is cheaper but takes a lot longer - the best one is the overnight sleeper train from Colombo.

There is no formal curfew, but it is not adviseable to travel after 20.30, because there are lots of checkpoints and it is a hassle. Personally, I am happy with an obvious security presence during the hours of darkness.
