Great, fast, and frequent metro service in Santiago. Modeled after the Paris metro, the main lines cut across the city center and into important districts.
The easiest way to get across. You have to buy a metro card (~$1 USD) and load it with money at the service counter. It charges you based on rush or non-rush hour ranging from $0.80 to $1.10 USD per flat-rate ride.
It can get very crowded during rush hour, and not all trains are air-conditioned. The announcements are in both Spanish and English.
The best way to get to airport is to go to Pajaritos station and go to Turbus and get an airport transfer (~$4 USD). It's also the best station to go to Valparaiso where busses pass nearly every 15 minutes and cost about $19 USD round trip.

For an English speaking visitor after day 1 I had no issues using the Metro in Santiago. Fast efficient, safe and covers most of the region. I was impressed.

Very clean, easy and safe to use. Used it to get around Santiago. The attendants were helpful and it is very similiar to the DC Metro system.

Living outside Trans Santiago, we don't often use public transport, but parking downtown can be difficult and expensive! So we drove down to Los Dominicos at the start of line 1. Our BIP cards were empty so we put some money on them at one of the many open windows. We went down to the platform and were whisked down to El Golf. It was a Saturday so no commuters, but no wait for trains. The train was clean and so were the platforms.
Return journey just as easy! Attractive murals at many stations, we would use it more if the line came out further!

I took the metro everywhere in Santiago and was super impressed at its efficiency and the politeness of the local commuters. Except in the rush hours, it's easy to get a seat. Metros run almost at every minute frequency. And connects to all the major tourist attractions.

I spent the last five days of a Chile visit in Santiago and used the Metro every day. My only quibble is that not all exits have escalators, and I did some huffing and puffing hauling some luggage up stairs. Otherwise, no complaints. You must buy a plastic ride card and put value on the card. I believe that each ride costs about 650 pesos.

Clean and quick subway. Easy to map out and get around. Felt safe as it was very cosmopolitan and efficient.

Easy and convenient way to get around the city. We were there during the Summer holidays so it was never too busy. There were however some stations that were closed due to the damage caused during demonstrations so you have to adjust your itinerary at times.

Yes, the October riots damaged many stations and weekly protests continue in Plaza Italia. Boquedano and some other transfer stations are closed. But the system continues to provide efficient safe, service in daytime (we did not need to use it at night). Be sure to visit the Santiago metro webpage to see the status of stations before you book a hotel.
