(QCOSTARICA) Taxi drivers vow to frustrate movement of vehicular traffic Wednesday in protest against fees of more than ¢3.1 billion colones that the regulatory agency does not take into account in setting rates.

The taxi union says taxi drivers will protest Wednesday in front of the offices of the Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos (Aresep), located in Guachipelin, Escazu.

According to the taxi union representative, Gilberth Ureña, the protest will be country-wide, though the major concentration is in San José.

In San Jose, the taxi drivers will gather in front of the Gimnasio Nacional in La Sabana and starting around 8:00am, make their way along the Ruta 27 to the Aresep offices.

This massive protest is surely to affect traffic on the Ruta 27, and morning commuter traffic. Expected to be greatly affected is the autopista General Cañas, the major route between the airport and San Jose.

The Fuerza Roja (Red Force) want the Aresep to reflect the added costs and fees in the rates that have only been partially adjusted since 2009.
