Nope, Pinawala is quite 'remote'. Fastest route by public transport is Dambulla - Kandy - Kegalle (bus) or Rambukkana (train) and then an infrequent local bus or tuktuk for the last miles. I'm afraid one way at least 3-4 hours, add 45 minutes if coming from Sigiriya as that's an extra bus to Dambulla.

Sigirya - Polgahawela bus and take the train or a bus from there to Rambukkana. Rest is on a tuk tuk..
