All buses of the Public Transport System, in addition to the subway and MetroTren Nos wagons must have in the window on the side of the seats intended for preference use, an adhesive part with the international symbol of a wheelchair (white SIA in a blue box). This adhesive indicates that these seats are reserved for people with disabilities with reduced mobility. You may be free to require the user to be making use of this preferred place to give him the seat. In case of buses, you can also contact the driver to ask him to enforce what indicates the above adhesive.
You can make claims, complaints or inquiries through our official channels of care: Call Center 800 73 00 73 (free from landlines) or 600 730 00 73 (from cell phones and/or regions, cost of a local call), website and RRSS of Red Metropolitana de Movilidad.
When making a complaint or complaint, either through the Call Center or through the other channels of care, remember to provide all requested data. Only then can your request be made. Depending on the nature of the complaint or complaint, this data could be, among others, the patent card of the bus, tour number, time, day and place, where the incident occurred.
Article 91 of the Transit Act, in point 4, provides that drivers of public transport buses must not allow the entry of “packages or packages that disturb passengers or prevent the movement through the aisle of the vehicle. With the exception of this prohibition, assistance dogs accompanying passengers with disabilities.” Given the above, and under the provisions of the aforementioned Law, bicycles are not allowed to enter the buses of the Red Metropolitana de Movilidad,because these would hinder the movement of other passengers. This also includes folding bikes, because the same criterion applies.
They are tracks that are intended for the exclusive use of public transport and emergency vehicles, such as ambulances and fire trucks, in order to improve travel times. There are three types of priority pathways:
The Exclusive Roads are streets in which at certain times only public transport buses and taxis circulate in any modality on all their tracks.
Solo Bus Track
These tracks are intended for public transport buses only 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Taxis will be able to drive as long as they have passengers inside. They are located on the right side of the track.
They are roads where there are tracks for exclusive use for buses and are usually located on the central road of the road, duly segregated by soleras or studs. They do not allow the entry of any type of vehicle.
Currently, the city of Santiago has several Exclusive Roads and Solo Bus Tracks. The details of these and their operating hours can be found on the www.fiscalizacion.cl
Remember that private car drivers are fined when entering priority roads for public transport and emergency vehicles, which are worth between 0.5 and 1 UTM.
