Old folks are getting a break on the valley trains.
The price adjusting authority decreed Thursday that seniors ride free.
The agency, the Authoridad Reguladora de Servicios Público also set the fare for the new San Antonio de Belén route at 330 colons, about 67 U.S. cents. The route goes into service next week.
Other routes are going up from 30 to 40 colons.
The Instituto Costarricense de Ferrocarriles said that from December 2009 to November 2010 68,251 passengers used the valley route and 84,884 used the Heredia line.
