Project Details


The train, which will transport passengers and cargo, seeks to reduce travel times, as well as solve the needs and reduce the logistical costs of the Valparaíso and San Antonio ports.
Thanks to the high-speed technology, which will allow to travel at 200km/h, the estimated travel time between Valparaíso and Santiago will be 45 minutes, and 39 if depart from Viña del Mar, respectively. This means a saving of time, considering that by 2018 the stretch takes about an hour and a half, two or even more on holidays and end of the year. The project includes four stations, one in Valparaíso (Barón sector), another in Viña del Mar (downtown), Casablanca and finally in Maipú (Vespucio-Pajaritos).
