New fares approved for bus routes
The Public Services Regulatory Authority announced this Wednesday that a rate increase for all domestic bus routes will go into effect next week.
The hikes will apply to 3,557 fares in 696 routes, and only 104 (15 percent) will remain the same. The variation is due to the new method for automatic fare calculation.
The proposal was presented through public consultation for nine days, from March 16-27, and a total of 90 objections were received.
Among the routes that will not change, the fares are: 600 SD San José – Puntarenas and route 205 San José – Ciudad Quesada.
The new fares will go into effect after the publication in the government daily, La Gaceta, at the end of next week.
Some of the new approved fares are:
|02-02A San José – Sabana Cementerio||¢ 120||¢ 140|
|01 San José – Barrio México||¢ 120||¢ 140|
|20 San José – Tibás||¢ 195||¢ 210|
