"After almost a year of referendums, meetings with experts, traveling during rush hour and a difficult process of negotiation with the companies running the system, in December 2012 Minister of Transport Pedro Pablo Errázuriz announced the end of the contracts that current operators had with the national government that primarily benefitted the companies, also announcing that the previous contract would be replaced by new conditions that would focus on service quality for users.
Subus: Subus will keep main line 2 and incorporate the G region that was previously in the hands of Las Araucarias. This way they will eliminate transfers from the south of the city toward the center and northern parts of Santiago.
Buses Vule: Buses Vule will keep main line 3 and the H region, the latter having been under their management since the bankruptcy and withdrawal of Buses Gran Santiago last October. It will incorporate the I region that until now was run by Comercial Nuevo Milenio, as well as the E region that was previously awarded to Unitran. This will allow for improving connectivity between routes.
Redbus: Redbus will continue to operate the feeder region B which it has managed since Buses Gran Santiago's disappearance in October, in addition to the C region. This will allow for improving the range of routes and eliminate the need for transfers.
Alsacia: Alsacia will keep main line 1 with a group of services that will integrate the city.
Express: Express will continue to run main line 4 and, in addition to its current services, will add those in the current D. This way the area's connections with the city will be improved, requiring fewer transfers.
STP: This Company will continue to control the F region corresponding to the Puente Alto commune, favoring connections with metro line 4 and the main bus lines from Concha y Toro Avenue and Santa Rosa."

We would like to thank Subus, Redbus and Alsacia & Express for choosing us once again and we would like to congratulate all the other companies that have benefitted from this process.
