La Araucanía, Los Ríos and the Lakes District have an excellent network of buses: big buses, minibuses, vans, minivans and pretty much anything else that you can imagine. Bus transportation is the easiest and most low-maintenance way to get around. To get to some of the smaller and more remote towns, it may be necessary to backtrack to the closest city in order to find the correct bus. The roads are accessible for rental cars. Taxis, Uber and colectivos (shared taxis) operate within most of the larger towns that cannot be covered on foot.
