Policies for Road Drivers: Be SAFE! Have Serious FUN!
We are convinced that the most challenging and dangerous jobs in Costa Rica is navigating our streets and highways. We pride ourselves in safe, cordial drivers and thought this would be a good moment to tell you about our policies of the road:
A. Avoid maneuvers that endanger the safety of customers and their own.
B. Avoid deviating from the established route. In case of being strictly necessary or that the clients request it, the drivers must contact Operations to confirm the change of route.
C. Do not stop at places that may put customer safety at risk (curves, double yellow line, dangerous areas, among others).
D. Maintain the limit at 60 km/h in rural areas and 70 km/h on major highways.
E. Require the use of a seat belt for all occupants of the bus.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have suggestions or ideas to improve our transportation service for you and your clients.
