Timetables of major government operated (or commissioned) national-level public transport services (specifically bus and train). The focus here is on national level services (not those which operate only at a municipal or city level and which are not controlled or regulated by the national government). A 'yes' in any question will refer to both types of transport. However, if there is no national level service operated or regulated by the government for a given type of transport (for instance busses), then this type is ignored in this data category. Data submitted in this category should meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Time of operating
  • Time of leaving first station and arriving to the last station
  • Updated at least once a year

Data Location



There is scattered information about transportation and timetables. From the government, we only get information on routes – https://www.aresep.go.cr/index.php/inicio/mapas-de-rutas-de-autobuses

There is no national timetables managed by the government, but by each company that have a licensed route. There is information for the train in the Gran Area Metropolitanea (Great Metropolitan Area), but it might not represent the reality. To access this information go to www.incofer.go.cr It may not be up to date. Each company may have online information about their service. In many cases, information available might not be accurate to the reality. not available in one single URL

There are maps by a regulator agency, by route and in jpg. and not all routes have a map.
