The Chilean National Transports Policy provides a framework for stakeholders in the transport sector to plan and implement systems that promote social and economic development in the country.

The National Transport Policy, led by the Ministry of Transports and Telecommunications, is meant to guide the long-term development of the sector. Among the objectives, priorities, and tools it provides, the policy outlines the master plans for road, port, and railway infrastructure, as well as investment plans, public transport service quality manuals, and reservations of space for terminal locations and new services.

The policy aims to foster the economic and social development of Chile. The promotion of economic development is centered on infrastructure and the efficiency of logistics chains. The promotion of social development focuses on people’s mobility and promotes minimum standards for the quality and efficiency of urban transport.
