Transportation

The city of San Jose has an extensive public bus system that allows students to travel at very low costs.  Bus fees in the city range between ¢185 (USD $0.37) and ¢450 (USD $0.91) each way. Most terminals for out-of San José traveling are located downtown, but several bus stops are located along any well-traveled road in the country. The bus rides are paid in cash at the time of use; the system does not offer monthly tickets or student bus tickets. Only senior citizens can receive special discount tickets. Taxis are also very affordable, and rates can range from ¢2,000 ($4USD) to ¢3,500 ($7USD) each way.
