Good metro but very full during rush hours. Not very expensive. It combines with buses to visit other neighborhoods. Beware of pickpockets

I used the metro earlier today. The hardest part was ordering my Bip! Card from the ticket vendor at the station. She spoke no English and my Spanish is very poor. I ended by paying about 2300 pesos for the cards. After that everything was...More

I speak very little Spanish (I always attempt to speak it but I'm sure I'm butchering the language). Despite this, the metro is one of the easiest to follow. I had no difficulty purchasing a Bip card (i.e. Santiago's equivalent of the Oyster/Go card/etc.), putting...More

Good transportation and easy to get around Santiago. You just have to pay close attention to pick pocketing. Santiago is extremely bad about pick pocketing.

The Santiago metro is definitely one of the better metro systems in the Americas, offering quite rides throughout most of the city. New lines were added recently and more and under construction. It's quite amazing that a small country such as Chile can produce such...More

For those accustomed to subways, the Santiago metro will live up to their expectations. There are six lines, and a fixed price of 760 pesos per ride, no matter where you go. You have to buy a card (called Bip) and recharge it in order...More
