The bus station, the Rodoviario, is on Pedro Montt in front of the Congess building. I don't believe they have a website.

There are buses every 15 minutes to Santiago. The trip lasts 1.5 hours and buses will make a first stop near the beginning the metro line. It will cost the same no matter where you get off in Santiago. Turbus and Pullman will end up at their own bus station which connects to the Universidad de Santiago metro station. It is easy, cheap and comfortable.

There is good bus service leaving about every twenty minutes. We used TurBus but Pullman is also good. The fare was a little over $7 US. Bus was clean and modern with good A/C. You chose your seat at the time of purchasing ticket just like on an airline!

If you want a great tour of Valparaiso and/or Vina del Mar, contact Michael at info@myvalparaiso.cl. He gave us a great, personalized tour for a very reasonable rate and then took us to the bus station, helped us buy our ticket, escorted us to the bus and told the bus driver where to drop us off to catch a taxi to the airport. Exceptionally fine service from this excellent tour guide who speaks English, German and Spanish.
