As of March 1, Sancarleños will be able to travel to Managua, Nicaragua with a departure in Ciudad Quesada.

The TransNica company will open this new route San José-Ciudad Quesada-Los Chiles-Tablillas-Managua.

Currently, TransNica offers service to and from Managua and San Jose by way of Peñas Blancas.

Several weeks ago, the Consejo de Transporte Publico (CTP) authorized the company to operate this new route through the North Zone of the country.

“We want to offer a quality service with an efficient transportation principle as we have been doing. We have a fleet of 20 buses all, friendly to the environment, ergonomic seating, air conditioning, television, in order to allow the passenger on that journey of 8 or 9 hours, to go in comfortable conditions,” TransNica general manager Oscar Alfaro told San Carlos Digital.

In Cuidad Quesada, the operations center is in the Plaza San Carlos Terminal, with one departure daily at 8:00 am from Cuidad Quesada on the 5:00 am bus from San Jose.

The cost is US$25 from Ciudad Quesada (US$29 from San Jose).

The bus crossed the border at Tablillas, passing through the Santa Fe Bridge, San Miguelito, Acoyapa, Juigalpa, Masapa to Managua.
