Traveling By Bus Will Be More Expensive

By Oliver Pérez

Now people traveling in bus will have to pay 240 colones more from Nicoya to Nosara and 165 colones more between Nicoya and Samara.  These increases are part of 676 tariffs that received an average increase of 14.86%.

According to the Regulatory Authority of Public Services, they are a result of a petition for an increase in the national tariff due to the increase in operating costs of the companies.

For example, in the case of the route from Nicoya to Samara, the tariff increased from 1135 colones to 1300, and traveling from Nosara to Nicoya went up to 1865 colones.  The service from Nicoya to Curime will now cost 235 colones. This is the minimum tariff, which increased 30 colones.

If you’re going to travel from Nicoya to San Jose, the passage will cost 5480 colones. This is the highest increase that will dip into the pockets of those who use this transportation service.
