By Bus, Santiago
There are many bus companies in Chile but the bigger ones are Turbus and Pullman Bus. For me Pullman Bus is better. Their staff is friendlier, food on board is better and their lines are smaller. The buses are the same and ticket fees too.
Give Pullman Bus then a try.
Santiago is a madness place, full of yellow buses, you can go everywhere on those , but take care, even for us could be really complicated to take one.
Run really fast and if you don´t know the direction you can get lost.
In front of Santiago Airport you can get a bus to Terminal Alameda, the main bus terminal in Santiago, where there are busses to everywhere in Chile. This transportation is done by Turbus, buses leave every 30 minutes and cost CH$1600. It takes less than half an hour to the terminal.
to: By airplane to the international airport, just a half hour from town.
around: Our hotel was in the centre of town , so we walked a lot. But there are lots of busses, all wearing signs of their destination and the price( about 300 pesos a ride). There are lots of taxi's cruising the city and they are not expensive.
Trains are mainly used for transport to other cities.

The buses in Santiago are called Micros, they are all yellow and can get you pretty much anywhere in the city, they cost U$ 0,50. They are changing all buses so idon´t know how they gonna look in the future.
As of February 26th, 2014, Chile has stopped collecting the reciprocity fee, with that Americans are no longer required. There is also a local bus that will take you from the Airport into the city but this makes many stops, it does stop at the main bus terminal. There is another bus that serves the airport to the main bus terminal, this is more comfortable and will take less time. Once you clear Customs and Immigration and baggage claim you will see the areas for the buses and can purchase your ticket.
