Summary note:
Public transportation in Valparaiso is unique in the world and since the mid-nineteen century has developed and coexisted through different means, such as horse wagons known as "Carros de Sangre", funicular railways, trolleys, buses and metro. Decades ago, trains and trams were also included. The coexistence of these various means of public transport, in addition to the particular geography of the coastal city, makes it an outstanding heritage of the city and its spaces. Their history was compiled in a visual document elaborated by Simón Castillo, Marcelo Mardones and Waldo Vila, historians and doctors in Architecture and Urban Studies of the UC, who since 2011 are members of the Colectivo Micrópolis.
