Santiago de Chile for the Subways...Regular Rail fantastic in large cities with nearby trips up to 100 mls from main Cities.

Long distance Rail getting and overhaul and eventually, within the next 10 yrs that part of the Rail System will also be an integral part of Chilean Travel.

Chinese and Japanese interests working hard to get a Fast Train to run from Santiago to Valparaiso (Where Congress is Located) in a near future too.

Interesting how Chile's largest and second largest city are a stones throw away from each other and the connectivity is relatively poor by even LatAm standards, especially since the natural obstacles and that pronounced.

Bogota Colombia, and Curitiba Brasil, have excellent BRT "Bus Rapid Transit" systems, with dedicated express lanes, priority signalization, speedy payment-before-boarding, and entrances on both the front and rear of busses. USA bus systems are light-years behind them.

US buses make me feel like I'm in a third world village, not in a developed country
