You can do Interbus or the regular bus. Time wise there will not be much difference especially now since a bridge on the normal route has collapsed (washed out) and all traffic goes via Turrialba.

It looks like this! The public bus charges more for the longer journey through Turrialba, I don't know if the shuttle does the same.

Interbus won't charge you more because of going through Turrialba however, they will not pick you up in Escazu. You will have to meet them at one of the hotels along the highway. Normally the Real Intercontinental works well for pick ups. The shuttle leaves in the monring only.

That is correct that the public bus is charging more when going through Turrialba.

Thank god route 32 is open again. The trucks travelling through Cartago were causing traffic chaos and many accidents. Route 32 can have them. Better yet...it is time to rebuild the railroad which should never have been decommissioned in the first place.
