Bus Fares Increased In Pre End Of The World

Buses-540x300

While most were worried about the end of the world they did not take note that bus fares went up. On Thursday, bus fares on many routes went up.

Enrique Muñoz explicó, Intendende de Transportes, explained that fares up 14% on 93% of the over 3,000 bus routes, while 198 were decreased and no change on 21 routes.

Altough the fare increase can be as little as a few colones, for many the increase is the end of the world. Take for instance an employee who earns a wage of ¢200.000 monthly and is now required to hand over ¢480 monthly for getting to and from work.

The calculation is on a ¢10 colones increase, which is ¢20 colones daily or ¢120 colones for six days a week, which calcualtes to ¢480 for a 24 work days a month.

The increase is in addition to all the other increases coming our way – electricity and water and many other others – in the new year.

In some cases the increase is up to ¢100 or more each way.
