Santiago peaje

Post by jehturner » Sat Oct 27, 2018 10:58 pm

I'm planning to drive to Santiago next weekend, which is something I almost never do (first time with the kids, besides airport stops). How do I figure out which of the roads that I'm likely to drive on are restricted and how to pay for them? I mainly want to get near Ñuñoa from the Ruta 5 Norte and back (may get around by Metro in between). I found this "day pass" site, which seems like it probably covers every connection in the area that I'm likely to run into, right?

There have been previous threads on this subject, but they're very old (apart from "toll roads", which seems more general), so it seemed better to start a new one...

Thanks!

James.

you can buy a tag pass as you aproach santiago at the copec gas stations. i believe you have 48 hours to buy it, after you hit a tag toll road.

Or you can buy online as suggested. Yes, that covers all roads as far as I know.

Great, thanks. There seem to be various different operators and I wasn't sure which might apply, but if I can just get this pass for all of them (and leave the truck parked on the middle day), that's probably the most practical thing. (Now I just have to figure out how to enter diplomatic plates...)
