In the case of the booths located in Escazú, light cars and motorcycles will go from paying ¢380 to ¢400, while at the San Rafael de Alajuela (La Guacima) station the rate will rise from ¢580 to ¢600; in Atenas it will go from ¢760 to ¢790; and in Pozón (Orotina), from ¢580 to ¢600.

The increase, blamed on the dollar exchange, affects all classes of vehicles.

According to Globalvia Ruta 27 (the private concessionaire) statistics some 78,000 vehicles daily moved along the Ruta 27 in 2019.

The concession contract allows the concessionaire to every 3 months, adjust up or down, the rate base on the dollar exchange rate.
