Bus fare increase in Costa Rica

If you plan to travel in Costa Rica by bus, make sure you bring enough money. World wide gasoline prices are skyrocketing, and Costa Rica is not immune to this. It cost 35 colons for a liter, 35 colons for regular, and 16 colons for diesel.

The Aresep (Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Publicos) regulates public transportation and prices. They plan to increase the fare after requests for bus fare hikes. Some routes will cost more than others. The request for the bus fare increase can be from 13% to 75%.

The Aresp will hold public meetings in different locations.
