Airport Taxi Fare Hike Rejected by Regulators

October 3, 2008

The fleet of taxis that serve the JuanSantamaríaInternationalAirport will not be increasing fares any time soon.

The Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP) this week rejected a rate increase request by the company, Taxis Unidos Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Santamaría, which has the exclusive contract to park at the airport’s exit gates to pick up arriving passengers.

The taxi company had requested a 10 percent increase in taxi rates in July.

However, a lack of taximeters in the 70-vehicle taxi fleet soured ARESEP on the idea.
