Lots of rumors but have not seen actual answer to what is being built next to roadside fruit stand and in the large quarry size pit with a zinc fence. New Metro station, firehouse, high rise condo, long awaited hospital?

When you said "New Metro Station", for a moment I thought you meant they were going to have an underground railway in Sosua! :giggle:

I was told it was going to be the new Caribe Tours station. Metro is by the gas station.

I'm curious as to why they had to excavate about 10 feet of earth - especially if it's going to be a bus station(?).

It was a worker at the current Caribe Tours office next door, so they probably don't really know.
A taxi driver told be it will be a new Caribe Tours station, with parking. However, the bg sign above describes a lot more, including something for the chuch

Isn't the existing Caribe Tours location under construction???
or reconstruction??
That is the subject of this thread and that is what I was told about the excavation next to the current station in Sosua.

Another thought: Perhaps the transit mafia will be forced to allow Caribe Tours to eventually start from further on down the road in the direction of Islabon, GH, Nagua, etc...

I think that's the point that Windeguy was making.
Yes, I should have said "pick up and discharge passengers" in Cabarete, Islabon, GH, etc..

From Rio San Juan, do they head to Santo Domingo or in the direction of Sosua?

Yes
They come from SD - and stop at RSJ
They leave RSJ for SD.... with stops along the way...... 2 express buses daily (Cabrera-SD)
