Bus

Concepción has two long-distance bus terminals. Most companies use the Terminal de Buses Collao, 3km east of central Concepción. From outside the terminal, grab a taxi into town. Buses Biobío uses the separate Terminal Camilo Henríquez, northeast along the extension of Bulnes.

There are dozens of daily services to Santiago with companies including Eme Bus, Pullman Bus, Nilahue and Turbus, which also goes to Valparaíso and south to Temuco, Valdivia and Puerto Montt.

Línea Azul goes to Chillán (every 30 minutes). Pullman Bus connects Conce with Los Angeles every 30 minutes; some buses stop at the Salto del Laja. Buses Biobío has similar services and also goes to Angol every hour.

For services south along the coast, including Cañete, try Sol de Lebu.
