201607171824500.nota santana(QCostarica) As of this morning, the urban train of the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM) has no conductor, following the resignation of Guillermo Santana over the weekend. Santana cited personal reasons for stepping down as president of the Instituto Costarricense de Ferrocarriles (Incofer).

Santana has been at the conductors controls of the Incofer since Solis took office as President and has been responsible for the expansion of the commuter train service that now includes service to Rio Segundo de Alajuela and the passing of the bill (on April 26 and signed into law on June 28) allowing the Incofer to obtain US$408 million dollars in financing of its modernization plans, that includes the “Tren  Eléctrico Interurbano” (electric train) project

Santana has also had to answer questions overthe constant (almost daily) collisions involving the train, and the worst of all, a head-on collision of two trains earlier this year.

President Solis expressed satisfaction and took time to recognize the efforts and dedication by Santana to find a solution to public transport problem gripping the country.

Details of the Santana decision and his potential replacement are expected today, Monday, July 18 at a press conference that President Solis says will also be assisted by the Minister of Transport and Public Works (MOPT).

The Incofer is an independent government agency and does not answer to the MOPT.

"Rico" is the crazy mind behind the Q media websites, a series of online magazines where everything is Q! In these times of new normal, stay at home. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
