The initiative is thanks to an agreement between Subite and Claro, which will equip some 200 buses.

The free internet will be available on the following routes: Cartago-San José, Alajuela-San José, Desamparados, Aserrí, Santo Domingo de Heredia, Tibás, San Pedro, Curridabat, Zapote, Hatillo, Alajuelita, Moravia, Guadalupe, Escazú and Santa Ana.

“The buses with free internet will be marked with the SUBITE logo,” said Luis Miguel Herrera, general manager of the company.

The buses (with free internet) will be equipped with news, information and educational content on flat screens.

With this initiative, Costa Rica joins the growing list of “smart cities” that have implemented free Wi-Fi in public transportation, such as in England, Spain, Portugal and the United States.
