Buses to Alajuela, Heredia Back on Paseo Colón

January 4, 2008

Buses headed to Alajuela and Heredia from San José have returned to Paseo Colón after almost two years rerouting to Avenida 10.

The busy San José street now sees two bus routes connecting the capital with the northwest city of Alajuela – one provided by the TUASA bus company and another by Station Wagon Alajuela – and another route with service to Heredia, northwest of San José, the daily La Nación reported.

In March 2006, the Ministry of Public Works and Transport moved all three to Avenida 10, where they shared a lane with buses to Escazú, Flores and La Aurora.

Entering San José through Paseo Colón, the buses connect with routes to Pavas, La Uruca, other areas of the Alajuela province, Guanacaste and Puntarenas.

This recent rerouting, according to transport authorities quoted in the daily La Nación, was necessary to avoid traffic jams caused by construction work on Avenida 4.
