a la mierda el fútbol, yo quiero tirarme un piquero

The metro in Santiago is considered the Cadillac of Latin American underground transportation. It has exhibition spaces, art along several walkways within the station, Wi-Fi (which people actually use), and even a subscription library, called Bibliometro, which also has a location parked outside of the national archives that’s located inside an old-school railroad car.

News loops announce the country’s goings-on on monitors in some stations, and sometimes music videos are also shown, though you’d be unlikely to catch the whole loop or hear the whole song before your train comes.

The Santiago metro been open since 1975, now boasts 85 kilometers of track and 95 stations. It also carries 2.5 million passengers daily in this city of 7 million. Since a recent transportation overhaul called TranSantiago, occasionally disdainfully referred to as “TranSanfiasco” (Transdisastiago), the crowds during rush hour can be downright stifling, and it’s standing-room-only most of the day. Also, long distances between train lines (underground) and multiple sets of stairs, make this modern system fairly handicapped inaccessible, though elevators do exist.

The metro is constantly being expanded, with plans to reach Maipú, a district of Santiago (which was originally a satellite city) in the works. Santiago’s metro price varies by the time of the day, but never exceeds about US$.80. When using a bip (smart) card, a free transfer to the bus is included in the price.
