Los Leones


In general, the stations look sober, capacious and combined with the platform doors, the driveless trains and other tecnologies, makes the line look excellent

People who haven't been to Santiago should know that it used to take approximately 50 minutes, travelling from Cerrillos to Los Leones. It now takes only 19 minutes with Line 6. This line has been life-changing for many of the residents of the western municipalities of Cerrillos and Pedro Aguirre Cerda.
You can now live in Western Santiago and get to your workplace in Providencia in 'no time'.

Chilean youtuber IvanSebanucci talks precisely about how much time people now are saving by using this new line (Line 6).

The new line looks gorgeous. I like how stations look functional as well as really beautiful. Metro de Santiago does a really god job creating beautiful spaces inside stations. I'd dare to say it's one of the most beautiful and modern subway lines inaugurated recently. It looks even more beautiful than the Shin-bundang Line in Seoul and the Downtown Line in Singapore, both relatively new driver-less lines that I tried this year. Congrats Santiago!

- 2.7 million passengers have used Line 6 since its inauguration a month ago

- It has lowered passenger density on the whole network

- Expert suggests it to be extended farther west to Maipú to further enhance the effect

A new subway / subterranean passage was inaugurated yesterday. It links Calle Suecia with Underground station Los Leones.
The subway / subterranean passage is called Vía Suecia (The Swedish Way) and was made possible through a collaboration between Metro de Santiago, The Swedish Embassy in Chile and Chilean-Swedish artist Luciano Escanilla.

cross-post from Spanish forum, showing anticipated alignment of line 7 (which will in places run very close to line 1)

Viendo el mapa, entiendo que era necesario que L6 se hubiera mantenido en Pedro de Valdivia y no en Los Leones (aunque no se si sea factible construir una combinación con L6 en Pedro de Valdivia)

Hay nombres que deben cambiar eso sí, para no confundir a los usuarios. Por ejemplo, Neptuno por Cerro Navia; Cumming por Bulnes; Vitacura por Naciones Unidas; Gerónimo de Alderete por Cuauhtémoc (de paso se hace Metro Arte con México); Padre Hurtado por Kennedy.

Otra cosa: recordé a las estaciones "fantasmas" de la Línea 1

The new line 6 is much advanced comparing to other lines.

The largest metro in both South America and South Hemisphere is still now the only rubber tyred metro there, along with its variable rolling stocks, large stations, murals, artworks etc. It currently has 6 lines - Line 1, 2, 4, 4A, 5 & 6— is mostly underground.

After reading many websites I’ve recently saw some matters, which arise some questions and curiosity. Here I’m writing.

1) The most important line will be line 3. It will start from Los Libertadores and will run up to Fernando Castillo Velasco. It will be an L shaped line, and will cross all others lines. In July 2011, the government presented the final alignment for the driverless line L3. It will be 22 Kms long, and there will be 18 stations. CAF will supply and maintain 115 cars for Line 3. They will be equipped with CBTC provided by Thales for driverless operation. I heard that originally, construction is going, and line 3 will be opened in this year. Is it true? What is the current status? Please write some details and photos.

2) Whey the metro company selected driverless trains for line 3 & 6? What are their specialties? Are not they risky because of uncertain malfunction?

3) Will there also platform screen doors for line 3?

4) Why they have chosen former lines like 1, 2 & 5 for rubber tyre, and why they installed tradition steel wheel for line 3, 4 & 6? What was the difficulty for rubber tyres?

5) I heard Santiago was planned to return its tram network, but there are no such current news. Is that plan still alive, or abandoned. Please highlight some news about the 2nd generation Santiago tram.

6) Could anyone send me some information about the old Santiago tram routes following line by line destination and with a prominent map?

7) Is there any remains of former Santiago tram?

construction has been going on for a few years now on line 3. Metro SA has not given an exact date for the opening but it should be by the end of 2018.

here are a couple of youtube videos of line 3

funny enough, today line 3 experienced problems with their automated system and had to shut down for 7 hours while they fixed the problem.

yes. the design should be similar to line 6.

as of right now, it seems there is nothing beyond ideas on the drawing board. there don't seem to be any concrete plans to build a tramway although i think some will likely be built in the next decade.

this website (in spanish) has a lot of info on the old santiago tram system, including a map if you scroll down about 1/2 way....

no. the tram system lost out to trolly-buses and cars and was phased out in the 1950s, the last one stopped running in 1959.

Actually, there are remains of the former tram network: apart from the streets in which the tracks are still present (Vergara, Echaurren, Almirante Barroso, García Reyes, Catedral, and many others in the Brasil and Santiago Centro neighbourhoods), two tramcars were rescued in the past years, and the first one (a J.G. Brill Company 700 series - #757) is being restored to running condition. You can read more here: https://www.facebook.com/tranviahistorico/
