PUERTO PLATA.- Due to the consecutive increases of fuels cost in recent weeks, unions and public transport associations in the province of Puerto Plata have decided to increase fares.

Since last Monday, October 30, the Association of Public Transport Drivers of Puerto Plata, Montellano, Sosúa and Viceversa, made a readjustment in the prices of the tickets, claiming the increase of the fuels and the cost of operation.

As such, the passage from Puerto Plata to Sosúa daytime is 60 pesos and at night – 65, from Puerto Plata to Playa Dorada – 30 pesos are paid, increasing by 5 pesos during night hours, which is the same rate to travel to Gran Parada y Los Ciruelos.

The passage from Puerto Plata to Montellano costs 35 pesos a day and 40 pesos a night, to Cangrejos, María La O and El Samán, – 40 pesos daytime and 45 pesos at night, but until the toll entrance of the airport and residential La Union it is 50 pesos daytime and 55 pesos at night.

The guilds of public transport in Puerto Plata, warned that the tickets cost could continue to rise, due to the continuous increase of fuel cost.

Some passengers complained about the increase in the fare of the tickets, however they have to use this service daily to go to work.
