    Metro red

    The meter of Santiago is very easy to use and it takes to you to most of the tourist places, it is cheap. And very beautiful…. The people of Santiago are very proud about it.

    Note: at the crowed hours the value of the tickets it is high than a regular time.

    El metro de santiago es muy fácil de utilizar y te lleva a la mayoría de los lugares turísticos y es barato, además es muy lindo muy bien mantenido…….la gente de santiago esta orgullosa de el.

    Nota en la horas pico el metro tiene un valor mas alto, que las horas regulares.

    O metro e o melhor meio de se locomover por Santiago, rápido, barato e seguro e ainda por cima leva você a todos os pontos turísticos da cidade. POr isso na hora de escolher o hotel de preferencia a um perto do Metro.

    El Metro ou subterraneo de santiago es lo mejor medio de transporte de Santiago, es rapido, limpio y seguro, y te cheva a todos los locales turisticos de la ciudad.

    The Subway or Metro how they call it in Santiago is the best way to move arround, fast, clean and safe, take you to every touristic point in city.

    Metro system has three 4 sepate lines that interlink, and further extentions under construction.
    For destinations along these lines , it´s far quicker than local buses.
    The Metro operates from 6: 30 to 22:30 hrs Monday to Saturday , sundays and holidays from 8:30 to 22:30 hrs.
    Clean trains, quiet and frequent, try to not used into the rush hour.

  • Metro: Santiago's subway

    Universidad de Chile metro station

    Santiago's Metro is the most efficient and fast way to go around the city.
    There are 3 lines numbered 1 to 5 (Lines 3 and 4 are under planning or being currently built).
    Line 1 goes from Pudahuel -not the airport, though- to Escuela Militar (35 km. to the east).
    Line 2 goes from Estacion Mapocho -next to the river- to Lo Ovalle, in the southern suburb of San Miguel.
    Line 5 goes from Santa Ana -an intermediate combination station of Line 2- to Bellavista, in the southeastern suburb of La Florida.

    The longest trip takes 41 minutes. Ticket price is $ 320/380 - US$ 0,60/0,70 (normal/rush hour), and there's also an electronic debit card that can be recharged and used at a cost of $ 290/330; it's good if you're going to stay a couple of weeks in Santiago and using a lot the Metro. Card itself cost $ 1000 (US$ 1,80)

    Operating hours: 600 AM till 1100 PM, Monday to Sunday.
    Sunday fare is reduced price all day, and on Saturdays from 200 PM on.

    The Santiago subway is something that everyone here is proud. In fact, I've never seen a subway as clean and as safe as this one. There are actually 3 lines where you can move around. The 4th is being built at the moment.
    The easiest and safest way to go around Santiago is by subway. If you want to explore further in Santigo, buses (micros) are a good option.

    In the year 2002, the metro...

    In the year 2002, the metro consists of 3 lines which sum up to 40.6 km with Line 1 running east - west and Line 2 and Line 5 running south from the city centre. Sounds rare, we have lines 1, 2 and 5, you probably are asking ¿where are lines 3 and 4?... those are only projects, line 3 is planned to run from the northern part and line 4... ups, sorry I have no idea about line 4.
