(qCOSTARICA) Perhaps the single biggest contributor to the traffic congestion of San Jose are the buses, as “all buses lead to San Jose”.

But, that may soon change.

The Ministry of Transport (MOPT) is pinning its hopes on a pilot plan to “zone” buses coming from Desamparados, Curridabt and Pavas.

The Deputy Minister of Transport, Sebastian Urbina, explained that not all buses from these densely populated areas would enter the downtown area of San Jose, as passengers would connect via small terminals interconnecting with buses running into downtown San Jose. They can also connect with taxis and trains.

Though a date has not yet been set for the pilot project, Urbina said they hope to have the first routes operational by the end of July, with the goal of gradually extending to all routes.

Urbina added that once the plan is concrete, the MOPT must then enter into negotiations with the bus owners to define the “zone” methodology.
