TRANSPORTATION:

  • Transantiago system integrates buses and subway, and to use it, it is necessary to buy the rechargeable Bip! Card. The cost of the card is CLP$ 1300 and the minimum charge is CLP$ 1000. You can get one and recharge it at any Metro station, at Servipag Stores and at Punto Bip!
 
  • Metro: Santiago's Metro (www.metro.cl) is the most efficient and fast way to go around the city. It is clean, cheap, fast and safe, but overcrowded at peak hours. The Line 1 (the red one) is the vertebral column of the Metro system and it runs under Santiago’s main avenue. For reaching the “Campus Lo Contador”, you have to get off at Pedro de Valdivia Station, and walk straight ahead to north by La Concepción Street (about 10 minutes).

    The Metro operates from 6:00 to 23:00 hrs Mondays to Fridays, Saturdays 6:30 to 23:00 hrs and Sundays and holidays from 8:00 to 22:30 hrs. This schedule varies from one line to another so, if you plan to travel after 22:00 hrs, check the schedule of the Metro lines you will use at: http://www.metro.cl/guia-viajero/horarios (in Spanish). The Metro has a different cost depending on the time of your travel.

    Switching between lines has zero cost, and changing from Metro to bus, bus to bus or bus to Metro has usually zero cost too (exception: if you paid $ 570 on Metro, the bus will charge you an additional $ 30). For the cost of one ride, you can take up to 4 different transportation stages in bus and metro, in a 2 hours lapse.

   
  • Taxis: Are clearly identifiable by their colour, black with yellow roof and orange plate and are available all day long. You don’t need to negotiate a price. Pay what the taximeter says at the end of the trip and in the case that the driver does not turn on the meter, when your trip starts, you should ask him to do so. It is recommended though to ask for an approximation of the trip cost to the desired destiny. Late night fares are normally double the day’s. It is not customary to tip taxi drivers in Chile.

    Taxi Companies (24/7):  

    Arauchile: (56 2) 247 30 30 (they have english-speaking service) www.arauchile.cl

     Andes Pacífico: (56 2) 204 0530 www.andespacifico.cl
