Costa Rica became an exporter of buses with the first 12 units headed for El Salvador.

Daewoo Costa Rica, the company that provides 32% of all the buses in the country, is the first to export buses outside its borders.

The model shipped to El Salvador is the CRE 340, a comfortable, safe and modern bus.

The company imports the motor and drive train and many other pre-assembled components from South Korea, with the final assembly and modifications made at its Santa Ana plant before shipping to the end user.
