All Change!

So, just as we were figuring out where in Heredia to catch what bus to get to where we want to go … they change all the bus stops (paradas de bus) as of this coming Saturday (27th December 2008)! OK, not all of them. But most of them.

Fortunately, we read La Nacion online (a good way to practice our Spanish), so this didn’t come as a complete shock. Today they published a useful little map of the changed bus stops. I also managed to locate a full list of the changes (which includes those that haven’t moved, and details of the relocation of paradas de taxi as well) on the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes (MOPT) website.

The main purpose of all these changes is to try to decrease the congestion and reduce pollution in the centre of Heredia. We haven’t been here all that long, but it is obvious that anything is worth a try.
