According to the concessionaire, Globalvia, through a press release, the adjustment is due to the devaluation of the colon against the dollar in recent days, as well as the increase in the Consumer Price Index in the United States.

“These effects derived from the pandemic on the world and local economy are putting pressure on inflationary factors that increase the value of different goods and services, which have also had an impact on the calculation of the fare factor for the route,” the press release cites.
