QCOSTARICA – Here we go again, every year about this time, Riteve, the private company under contract with the State to provide vehicular inspections in Costa Rica, asks for a raise in rates for the coming year.

This time around, for 2016, Riteve is looking for a 205% increase, wich would see the inspection fee jump from the current ¢9.930 colones to ¢30.320 colones, for passenger vehicles. Rates for all other types of vehicles will also increase if the request is approved.

Last year the request was for 202%.

The last time a rate  increase was approved was back in 2005, when the rate went from ¢8.805 to ¢9.930.

In the request sent to the Autoridad Reguladora de Servicios Públicos (Aresep) – the government agency that regulates prices for public services, Riteve blames the past eight rejections on the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes (MOPT) for not resolving the tariff model and methodology that must be issued by a disivion of the MOPT, the Consejo de Transporte Público (CTP), since 2005.

According to Cidia Cerdas, director of the CTO legal department, they have prepared several tariff models for Riteve, but none has been approved.
