BUS

A little bit more adventurous than using metro, but again very easy to move yourselves. Don’t forget your prepaid BIP card or ticket. It is not possible to buy tickets in the bus. Prepaid BIP and tickets you can buy in each metro station at charging points.

On Sunday or Holidays you can also use special „Circuito Cultural“ Buses. It’s a special Transantiago bus loop tour that will take you to the main attractions of the city including museums, cultural centres, typical areas and heritage buildings. The bus operates on Sundays and Holidays between 10,00am and 6,30pm.
