New Web Site Is Great Tool for Travelers
A new Web site, thebusschedule.com (also horariodebuses.com), is set to make life a whole lot easier for those looking to travel around the country by bus.
Available in English, Spanish, French, German and Italian, the site covers bus, ferry and, supposedly, train services, though The Tico Times could not find information on the latter when searching the site.
Users can enter a departure point and destination and choose to go via a certain route on any chosen date and time. The search results include the name and phone number of the bus companies serving the destination, departure times and approximate journey times, but not ticket prices.
In addition to destinations throughout Costa Rica, the service also offers information on a few international routes, such as Guatemala City, San Salvador and Tegucigalpa.
Furthermore, by following the “Change Country” link, browsers can also check bus and ferry times within Nicaragua, and an advertisement on the site says there are plans to extend coverage to Panama.
The Web site is new, so there are occasional gaps in coverage. For example, the central Pacific port of Caldera is not included, and information about local buses in the greater San José area is limited.
