The theme that I’m going to talk about now was a very controversial one in 2007. This event involved the change of the main part of the public transport... I’m sure that you already know that I’m referring to the famous and still present Transantiago.
This new public transport system promised to repair big problems like the pollution of Santiago and the safeness of the buses, but any of those are closed to be fixed even two years after!
The "new" buses where actually the same yellow ones but with a new coat of paint, so that, the pollution doesn't disappeared. And in safeness, the new buses still ride at a very high speed, even when the doors are still open!
The only thing that I could accept as an advantage comparing it with the old system is that with the Transantiago, we can pay only one ticket and do all the changes that we need between buses and the subway.
But this bad situation with the new system didn't start like this. Back in 2007, it was true that you can see new buses, and that any bus starts if the doors where opened. Also, the times of waiting weren't where so long.
However as the time passes, the Transantiago is getting worse. So that, the main change that needs to be done is improve the synchrony between the buses of each line in order to stop the conglomerations of people on the bus stops and also, to make shorter the waiting times.
