(qCOSTARICA) – Located at the corner of Avenida 7 and Calle 10, on the north side of downtown San Jose, six bus companies will be working under one roof, in a new terminal that will be inaugurated Monday, August 3.

The terminal, called Terminal Central de San Jose 7-10, developed by Portafolio Immobiliario, is located diagonal to the former Libano cinema, where for years sat an empty lot, in one of San José scuzzy areas.
