CITING bad service, failure to stick to schedules and unregistered buses, the Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MOPT) suspended the licensing of the SACSA bus company, which operates the route from San José to Cartago, a city east of the capital.
The suspension will take effect Dec. 17 and last six months. In the meantime, an alternate bus company will be selected for the concession.
The measures were taken in response to complaints from users. MOPT gave the company an ultimatum earlier this year to improve their buses and service, or lose the route.
