I visited Santiago de Chile metro in November 2003, it was very modern and clean, but there was a bit of garbage in some stations...

You must have been extremely unlucky then since the Metro is very, very VERY clean.

Let's not derail this thread, please.

No,this happens only in rush hour, like almost every metro system around the world.
Before "transantiago" (the new transportation system) the metro was underutilized because his fee was not integrated, as it is now.

Yes, the "normalization" of the system is going the right way. Many bus routes have been modified and some new ones have been created. As of next week the fleet management software is working, so that frequency is going to be optimized, thereby improving markedly the system.
Regarding the metro, the firm has developed a programme to improve the service so as to become the one it was before Transantiago. According to my experience during last months I think it has been successful.
What is left to be done in the new transportation system is the acceptance of people who still want the old pollutant, dangerous and chaotic system. They want it because there was not need to transfer, to walk more than 100 meters to get a bus, to stop a bus anywhere, to pay the fare to the driver (and sometimes less than the official fare), and many other informalities and bad habits.

Best regards

Yes, currently line 5 is in expansion to the West of the city. It will be finished by the end 2010 and will be ca. 14 km long.
According to line 3 there is no official project (it was in the 1980s). I think it will be the next expansion, though. Indeed, some transfer stations were built for this project. We can see even the platforms in stations Cal y Canto (line 2) and Universidad de Chile (line 1). Line 3 was planned North to East with transfers in line 2 and line 1 (now they would be in addition line 5 and line 4).
