Getting around in Antofagasta

Antofagasta is a busy city, located north of Santiago and has one of the best bus transportation systems in Chile resulting, in a majority of the population using the public transport service, on a regular basis.

There are at least 13 lines of minibuses in the higher transportation segment, each able to ferry about 30 people. Public transportation is referred to as TransAntofagasta, and frequency of buses is very high in comparison to other neighbouring cities. Most of these routes end in Caleta Coloso (Southern end of city) except in summer months, when the routes extend to outside of the main town to Balneario Juan Lopez. Although other modes of transportation such as rental cars, taxi cabs and motorcycles may be availed, they are not as popular.
