UPDATED 12:41PM – The Policia de Transito reports the Ruta 27 cleared, but, the cross road in Guachipelin, north and south of the 27, is completely blocked.
The taxi drivers are demanding a meeting with the Aresep regulator, which has so far refused, saying it will meet next week with the taxi drivers.


(QCOSTARICA) 11:37am – Travel on the Ruta 27 between La Sabana and Escazú is completely blocked. Other routes like the autopista General Cañas (San Jose – Airport) are not any better, the same with the Florencio del Castillo (San José – Cartago).

The most affected area is in Guachipelin, Escazú, in the area around the offices of the Autoridad Reguladora de Servicios Publicos (ARESEP), as taxi drivers demand the regulatory agency to amend the way it sets taxi fares.
