MOPT considering concessioned intermunicipal bus routes in San Jose (Costa Rica)
Costa Rica's public works ministry (MOPT) plans to begin giving out temporary permits to operate bus routes connecting different municipalities in San Jose province in December, local paper La Nacion reported.


The provisional, one-year permits will help test out the bus service with a view to concessioning the routes in future, public works and transport minister Francisco Jimenez was quoted as saying.


The new routes aim to connect different towns in the province without having to pass through the congested center of capital city San Jose, reducing travel time for users.


The first routes to begin operating will be Desamparados-Moravia, Guadalupe-La Uruca, Moravia-La Valencia, Escazu-Hospital Mexico and Escazu-Alajuelita, the report said.


The bus service, known as Interlinea, was originally set to begin operating in 2008, but was stopped after an administrative court found irregularities in the tender process.
