Buses leave every 10 minutes, driving time is about 40 minutes to the last stop, the subway (Metro) station* “Los Héroes”. In “Los Héroes” you should take the Yellow line, Line 2, in direction to “La Cisterna”, getting off in “Parque O’Higgins” station, 2 stops away from “Los Héroes”. The faculty is about 10 minutes away walking by the park.

The Faculty has 2 Metro stations close by, “Toesca” and “Parque O’Higgins”, both from Line 2, or the yellow one. If you are staying at the Center of Santiago, probably you will have a Metro Station of the Line 1, or Red line, close by. If that’s the case, probably you will be at the east of “Los Héroes” station. Then, you should take the red line in direction to “San Pablo” and transfer to the yellow line (Line 2) and take “La Cisterna” direction, to “Toesca” or “Parque O’Higgins”). If you get down at “Toesca”, you should walk through the street “Toesca” to the west and turn left to “Almirante Latorre”, go straight ahead until you see the Faculty. If you get down at “Parque O’Higgins”, you should go to your left (west direction), enter the park, follow the road to you right until you reach the exit. To that point, you will see the Faculty, so you should turn left and walk through “Av. Tupper” and turn right al “Av. Beauchef”.
*During the first day of the Congress we will give you a “Bip!” card to use the “Metro” and the public buses. It will have $1.000 CLP, so you could use it to go back to your hotel or apartment and then charge it at any “Metro” station.
*If you want to use the Metro before you arrive to the congress you can buy a ticket at any Metro station, but, to use public buses, you need to have the “Bip!” card.
