That's actually the bus line and its destination, and the Google Maps directions already convert both the starting and ending stops into English (well, romanized Japanese). For example, if going from Roppongi to Shibuya, the only sane choice is the 都01 (Metropolitan #1) bus and this is what you get: (courtesy Google) "Ex Theater Roppongimae" ...

Train travel between Poland, Lithuania and Latvia is currently very cumbersome. The following thread may be relevant for this: Are there trains beween Tallinn, Riga and Warsaw? This means that you should go by bus. As an example, Lux Express, has a daily departure to Vilnius, from where you can proceed to Riga. Currently, the bus leaves Warsaw at 18:25 and ...

Customs checks when travelling between EU countries are on a random basis with the main purpose of finding illegal items, most notably drugs. There are no restrictions on bringing elecetronics or produce for personal use between EU countries and you are in no duty to prove that the items have been bought in the EU. Noone will expect you to be awake on the ...

As I understood from your original question, you think that you can't use a train because of lack of the Belarus visa, but you can get the transit Belarus visa, and with it you can get to the Moscow in 18 hours! with train Warshaw - Moscow (in Russian, live timetable in English can be found here). If this is still not an option for you, why bothering ...

This depends on the size and popularity of your route. A small bus between two rural communities that have at most few hundred people might not even run if the driver has a bad mood that day, but an InterCity train will almost always be on schedule. In most cases you should allow yourself 5-15 minutes of delay, nearly all major trains will arrive within this ...

One (more) thing to take note of is that the actual locations of bus stands around large stations can be spread out quite significantly. They are usually numbered,but these numbers have no correlation to the bus route number, and AFAIK, Google's transit directions do not consider the exact location either. See the attached image for busses departing from ...

I was in Japan a couple of months back (visited both Tokyo and Kyoto as part of the trip), and pretty much everything is written in kanji AND romanised Japanese when it comes to public transport. You don't have to memorise the kanji! :)

Nothing is going to beat Thalys time-wise and Paris-Nord isn't too far away from the center as far as long-distance “departure points” (whether airports, train stations or bus terminals) go. You simply need to combine Thalys with a subway, RER or taxi ride from wherever you find yourself. Even if you could find a bus starting closer to your actual point of ...

Wikivoyage describes the logistics quite well: Budapest Franz Liszt International Airport ... is the country's largest airport, located about 16 km (10 mi) southeast of the city centre. Budapest Airport is notoriously hard to get in and out of. While a train connection between the city and the terminal has been built, it only served Terminal ...

Go to Ubung bus terminal, catch a bus to Gilimanuk, cross by ferry to Banyuwangi (Ketapang), continue to Surabaya, take long-distance bus across Java to Jakarta. This will take at least 24 hours, much of it on bad roads with suicidal bus drivers hopped up on drugs. Most travel agencies can organize a through ticket for you, or you can try to find your own ...

Vous pouvez charger sur cette carte un titre de transport TEC en vous rendant dans un ESPACE TEC ou à un SELF (automate de vente).

You can still show the booking confirmation email with the details that you have received to the bus driver without printing and they will accept that. In the store you can buy your ticket without paying the £1 fee however, I doubt they have the cheapest fare that we book through online. I am not so sure about this one. That's as per my understanding and ...

Unless your visa is specifically annotated that you can only enter by air (and I've never seen such an annotation on a US visa) then you can enter via any means you want - including by road/bus.

City to city buses are considerably cheaper than trains (you can often get tickets for as low as €9 when booking in advance), but the fastest bus trip takes 3:50 vs. just 1:20 on Thalys trains. The train is definitely fastest even though the station is less convenient to the sites you mentioned. If the much longer travel time is worth savings and ...

Until recently, the train network had a monopoly on long-distance land-based transportation in France, so the long-distance bus network isn't as developed as in most European countries. Like everywhere, buses are as a rule a lot cheaper than trains (at least if you book in advance), but they're also a lot slower. The fastest connections between Cannes and ...

There might be no buses between Ancona and Fano, however there seem to be buses between Rome and Fano. According to Rome2Rio these are operated by Adriabus and depart daily from Roma Tiburtina train station. The total travel time is of about 04h30m which looks shorter than your train journey with the included 1h30m waiting time in Ancona. Should you prefer ...
