Bus fares reduced starting Thursday
Bus fares all over Costa Rica decreased Thursday for 592 routes, after new rules were set for the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP) by the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court.
ARESEP spokeswoman Carolina Mora warned that bus companies that do not implement the cuts could receive fines of up to ₡1.3 million ($2,575).
She asked users to report bus companies that are not applying the fare change. Reports can be made by telephone at: 8000-273-737 or at ARESEP’s Facebook page. Riders have already reported bus companies from the provinces of Cartago and Alajuela.
The most recent fare adjustments were approved in April for 696 bus routes.
