Overview

Santiago, the capital of Chile, has a population of 6 million inhabitants and lies about 110 Km (68.4 Milles) from the Pacific Ocean coast. The Santiago Metro has 4 lines and one branch with a length of 84.5 Km (52.6 Miles) and 92 stations.

The subway has a daily ridership of 2.5 million people since the implementation of the Transantiago System, which integrated the train and bus network of the Central Region of Chile.

64 stations are underground, 3 at open excavation, 10 at grade, and 15 elevated. All the lines except Lines 4 and its branch 4A are operated trains with rubber tyres like some lines in Paris and the subways of Mexico City and Montreal.

From the Alameda Station (Central Railroad Station), toward the south, runs a suburban or regional railroad called Metrotren, with a length of 135 Km (83.9 Milles) and 18 stations. The Alameda Station is conected with the subway in the Estacion Central of the Line 1.

On Lines 4 and 5 there is a skip-stop express service in the peak hours (6:00 to 9:00 in the morning and 18:00 to 21:00 in the evening). The trains are marked green and red, which stop at alternate and some shared stations.

At the present, two new stretches are under construction, one is a extension of the Line 1 to the East with a length of 3.8 Km (2.4 Miles) and 3 stations, all underground, with another possible station to be added later; and a new stretch in the West and Southwest of the city to extend the Line 5, with length of 14.2 Km (8.8 Miles), 11 stations, part underground and part elevated. Additionally, a new station is being built in the south stretch of the Line 4.
