Greyhound provides a locator on their website. Just type in the city where you're stopping and it will give you the station(s) there and their addresses, even phone number and hours. That's tricky to answer, it depends on where you're going, whether there's an event there, what time of day, etc., but generally my experience with bus travel is always the ...

Welcome to North American bus travel! This trip requires you to take three buses each way. 1. a long trip on Greyhound from Toronto to Chicago, crossing the border at Windsor/Detroit. 2. a short hop from Chicago up to Milwaukee on Greyhound and 3. a medium distance trip across Wisconsin operated by Greyhound's partner company Jefferson Lines. As per ...

Here are some things not covered in other answers: In larger cities, the Greyhound stop will be an actual station, where you will go inside a terminal, find the correct gate, and get on a bus. Unlike airlines, you do not need to "check in". Generally the departure gates are fixed by destination, so a bus going to a given destination almost always leaves ...

I would definitely check Blablacar.fr. There's always a connection that suits your needs.

Spain has a very extensive intercity bus system, in fact they have one of the larger bus systems in Europe. You'll likely find it easy to travel without a car. That said, it depends where you go. There are very different levels of service across regions and specific cities. If you're close to a beach or a city you'll likely find plenty of bus connections, ...

Yes. It counts. You will enter the Schengen area as part of this trip. Under the right circumstances, you can make certain international-to-international air connections without entering Schengen, as airport transit lounges are secured areas that may permit you to get to your next flight without going through immigration. That is not how buses work. The ...

There are three kind of solutions: Expensive and fast : train (capitainetrain.com), plane (airfrance.com, hop.com) Fast and cheap : sharing a ride (blablacar.fr), plane (volotea.com, easyjet.com, ryanair.com) Slow and cheap : buses (flixbus, megabus, ouibus, isilines, eurolines) => You can use goeuro.com to check prices and durations (that site includes ...

At Busbud, a bus search tool I work for, we did a little study on the price of bus vs blablacar ride sharing in France. It's in French, hopefully you can get the gist of it: bus is often cheaper but it's worth checking both options. Here are some of the relevant bus companies that partner with Busbud in France and from France to Spain: Ouibus, Flixbus, ...

There are now a couple tools to compare the prices of train/bus/rideshares. Two examples are Comparabus and kelbillet. Trying these for a trip in October, 3 months ahead of time, the bus costs from 35 to 50 euros to Bayonne/Hendaye (in my experience, for such distances the price does not vary too much, even a week in advance), the rideshares are available ...

According to Rome2Rio you can go by train from Bregenz to Feldkrich, and then either by next train (8 minutes) or by bus (40 minutes). Bus from Feldkirch to Vaduz leaves every 30 minutes, it goes to Vaduz center: ÖBB website I can't find pricing information though. In LIEmobil I paid with CHF, but I was going from Switzerland.

Bus will be the cheapest way to get down there. You will probably have to change bus at some point as close to Hendaye as possible as there doesn't seem to be a direct bus line to there (AFAIK) from Lille. Check/Google the various bus services. A quick search with http://www.eurolines.fr/fr/ returns a 50euro itinerary from Lille to Biarritz.

Would this website be helpful? http://id.easybook.com/?lg=EN# I have not used this website though. Another one I found, but it is in indonesian https://ayobis.com/ Probably you already know this one http://www.lonelyplanet.com/indonesia/transport/getting-around/local-transport

I live in Chile and you are not legally forced to carry your passport anywhere if you stay in Chile. You will need some form of identification though, in case the police wants to see your ID, and the only legal one for foreigners is the passport. What the driver did is illegal. The best advice is to always carry a photocopy of your passport and handle ...

Yes, it counts, there are no exceptions for layover, transit or anything like that. If you cross an external border (which a bus must obviously do), you have to undergo a full border check and will get an entry stamp. The only reason it is sometimes (but only sometimes) possible to transit without a visa and/or without using up time from your 90 days is that ...

With bus travel you enter the country. I have never heard of buses that make it impossible to leave the bus for a travel of more than a few hours at most and non that crosses whole European countries that allow for foreigners without visa. So your time in the Schengen zone counts against your 90/180 days. Changing planes within the Schengen zone only does ...

There are 3 toll stops on the toll road from Tijuana to Ensenada. Each one costs $2. It is 62 miles and takes an hour. Simply stay to the right after you cross the border and follow the signs to Rosarito and you will see the Ensenada signs. I make the drive every 2 weeks or so!

You can catch the Hampton Jitney bus (no relation) every 15-30 minutes all day from Manhattan to Manorville, then a taxi back to Brookhaven National Laboratory. The taxi fare may be quite a bit cheaper this way than from Ronkonkoma as the distance is shorter. It may also be faster, depending on time of day, since the bus has only one stop between Manhattan ...

I messaged my advisor and she informed me that I would need to take the train from Penn station to Ronkonkoma and then Taxi to BNL. Thanks for the help.

That's easy. Greyhound bus from Bangor, ME to Houlton, ME. Take a taxi (or walk, but it's about 26km) across the border to Woodstock, NB. Maritime Bus from Woodstock, NB to many points in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec.

Buses between cities are easy and generally cheap to do, and there are many buses adapting basically any timeshift you want... however, excepting a few major cities, public transport for moving within the cities (specially if you go to the suburbs or surrounding towns) is generally an issue: taxi cabs are typically very expensive on those cities (it's ...

I can't find you a bus, but there are other options, according to rome2rio: Train, US$24-33 - will take just under 4 hours Taxi - around 2 hours, US$75-95 (having just been in India, this seems outrageous, I'm sure on the ground you could find it for a fraction of the price Drive - ah, perhaps this is the regular driver option, for US$15-23. On the ...
