    San Jose – Costa Rica’s government decide by next January if you build a electric tram route 10 kilometers from east to west crossing to San Jose, which will cost $ 250 million, reported an official source.

    The Second Vice President of Costa Rica, Luis Liberman, said today in a press conference that the decision will be made in December and January next, when a government commission and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) have analyzed and concluded a study on the feasibility the project.

    “This time we are going to make a decision. Unlike other times they have filed similar studies,” Liberman said referring to two previous analysis on the feasibility of a streetcar in San Jose.

    The French company today presented SYSTRA the Costa Rican government and the City of San José the findings of the feasibility study and financial socioeconomic tram, developed with a grant from the Government of France for $ 650,000.

    The company determined that the project is feasible from every point of view (environmental, socio-economic and financial), developed a design trolley route and determined that at least 150,000 people carry daily (3.5% of total population the country).
    The initial design features ten kilometer route with 18 stations and tram 14 units with capacity up to 750 passengers, which will operate at a frequency of every five minutes during peak hours and every ten minutes the rest of the day.

    The mayor of San José, Johnny Araya, said in the press conference that he is “absolutely convinced” that this transport will help solve the problems of congestion and pollution in the capital.

    He noted that the municipality will promote initiatives to repopulate the city and turn San Jose into a more attractive place for tourism, cultural, financial and commercial.

    The vice president said the Tram Liberman is in a government plan to “give priority to public transport over individual” in San Jose, where “the cars (cars) have outgrown.”

    If the government decides to endorse the project, Liberman said, the main objective will be to get the financing and then tender the construction of the work to one international company.

    Authorities also analyzed whether the best way to manage the tram is doing through a public-private consortium.
    If you meet the deadlines set out in the feasibility study, the tram could become operational within four years.
