Vehicle restriction in San José to be suspended for holidays
Happy Holidays: Transit authorities will suspend the one-day-a-week restriction of vehicles entering downtown San José starting next Monday, the Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT) reported.
All motorists will be able to enter the capital freely Dec. 23 – Jan. 5 regardless of the day they’re supposed to leave their car at home according to its license plate number. Traffic in San José substantially decreases during the holiday season.
Traffic Police officers will be reassigned from monitoring motorists’ compliance with the vehicle restriction to increased vigilance along highways leading to the most popular tourist destinations outside the Central Valley.
The vehicle restriction will be in force again from Jan. 6.
In addition, to facilitate the return of tourists to the Greater Metropolitan Area, parts of Route 27 will be converted into a one-way highway toward San José between 2-6 p.m. on Sundays from Dec. 29 to Feb. 2.
