Bus fares cut by regulating agency

The dip in the price of diesel fuel has trickled down to small reductions in bus fares.

The Autoridad Reguladora de Servicios Público said it has approved a 3.9 percent cut in fares involving 380 companies and 474 routes.

For many city routes, the cut is from five to 25 colons, from nearly one U.S. cent to nearly five. For longer travel, the reductions can be as much as 685 colons, about $1.30 for a trip from San José to Ciudad Neily near the Panamá border.
