Getting Around Santiago

Santiago is very easy to get around. Buses and the metro system are run by Transantiago, URL: Buy a rechargeable BIP card from any metro station ($2.30) to swipe on your way onto the metro or a bus.
Each bus ride costs $0.76. Service is frequent during the day, but less reliable at night. Subway fares vary between $0.76 during off-peak and $0.84 for rush hours. The metro operates from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday – Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays and holidays 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. You can get subway maps and travel information at the subway stations.
It’s very easy to find yellow and black taxis on the street. They are relatively cheap for short distance journeys; fares start at $0.50.
Alternatively, take a colectivo taxi, which runs on a fixed route. These are black cars with a destination sign on the roof. Private taxis can be booked from hotels or hostels.
