In fact, your potential for scenic views will be higher on virtually any mode of transportation other than the bus (plane, train, private car, boat). There is quite stunning scenery along the coast. Amtrak's Coast Starlight follows some of it, between San Luis Obispo and Oxnard, and a seat can be had for as little as $60 coach. But keep in mind that this ...

You can check how long the delay is online at the Canadian Border Services Border Wait Times page. This page is updated once an hour. I see at the moment that "Detroit and Canada Tunnel" is listed as No delay which the page explains means less than 10 minutes for traffic into Canada. The US has an equivalent page for traffic into the USA which lists "Detroit ...

In the UK, there is MegabusGold who do run a sleeper service. I don't know about other countries. Although MegaBus do run international buses, I don't think they run the sleepers internationally.

Since privatisation in the 80s/90s UK bus services are run by a vastly complicated array of private companies with overlapping and disparate jurisdictions, journeys, fares and services. Local services are run by many, many companies, often with overlapping routes. Sometimes the same route will be run by two companies! There are also national services ...

Rome2Rio is designed to do precisely this. It covers flights (even low-cost carriers), many trains and busses (both local transit and private long-distance busses), even some ferries I think, and is able to combine them. Icing on the cake is its ability to include some “driving” (taxi/private car) to get to the closest train station or airport as necessary, ...

The Windsor Tunnel is highly efficient - as an American, it consisted of flashing my passport, and 30 second look, and a move on. My experiences both in Detroit and Buffalo (Niagara Falls) are such that if the stop is more than a 10 minute delay, there was something really strange going on that day. Road crossings with Canada are easy, low-key affairs. ...

In many countries, there are only one or two companies offering long-distance busses and Eurolines would be the only one with a regular network of international busses. So the first things to check is the national transport company and Eurolines. But there are more and more alternatives and in my experience it seems especially true for Germany. I don't know ...

I did a quick search and whilst the display you are looking at does not specifically show a transfer, it does indicate a change of carrier, which is a good indication that you will have to disembark and board a new coach. When I checked the greyhound website via my mobile it shows the stop in Buffalo to be a transfer. (Different display to the one you found ...

It does not cover all the regular busses in the country but postbus.at is the main operator and does operate busses you could use. Unfortunately, it's not a part of the national train company (ÖBB) and the website therefore also includes trains, which is why busses do not show up in the search results for this particular journey… rome2rio is another site ...

There is a station selector which gives street address and map locations for many of their stops.

As far as I know, Rome2Rio does this the best, although I don't often search this way - probably would have if the site existed when I lived in Europe...but I digress. For example, if you want to go from Paris, France to Trogir, Croatia, without even specifying dates (although you can for prices), it shows a train + plane option, a train + bus option, and a ...

I think the inconsistency with the various Eurolines websites stems from the very fact that each country is served from a local company (National Express in England, Touring in Germany, etc.) Alternatively but quite similarly to the answer above (or below :)) you could use a google search query with the following pattern: eurolines <country> 2014 ...

Most likely your Greyhound bus will only make a single stop in Vancouver itself, although it may make stops in nearby suburbs like Coquitlam. The stop in Vancouver will be on Station Street, directly in front of the station that the Amtrak services leave from. If you have some time between the two trips you could stroll down and enjoy the views over False ...

The seats with different colors (and the color differ from company to company or city to city), are reserved for elder or pregnant or handicapped people, or people with baby in arms. That's for the whole country, not only Vitória. You may sit there, but you should give your seat if someone in these conditions appear. In some countries this doesn't exist ...

Burlington Trailways doesn't seem to have a scheduled stop at the Eastern Iowa Airport but when you actually look at locations of the Burlington Trailways in Cedar Rapids you will find that it's right at the airport. In addition to this you can probably consult the Airport's Ground Transportation page which also lists Cedar Rapids Bus Route 11 as servicing ...

I've been offered train connections (rather than bus) in two intra-German cases with Lufthansa where the flight was cancelled, but a good ICE (high speed train) connection between the two cities exist. Basically airline staff gave me the choice: be re-booked for next day, or take the train and arrive a few hours late. (The fact that Lufthansa often ...

I would add to Liam's excellent answer above: http://www.transportdirect.info/, a Government funded transport website, sometimes has fare information for local bus services. You can work out an arbitarily complex journey and click "Tickets/Costs" and it will attempt to give you an idea of the costs. If it can't, it will point you towards a relevant website ...

Rome2Rio is surprisingly effective in some African countries. Again, they won't cover every local minibus - most of them won't have timetables and certainly won't be online. This is why so many references to them are on blogs etc. However, for those that do, take for example, Harare to Cape Town on the site - it shows flight, bus & train, and driving ...

Fairly obviously, yes, you will see more. There's the long road, the bits of the coast, the various small town you travel through or past. Then there's the passengers. I find you'll either get 'weirdos', or you'll meet some really interesting people to talk to. People seem more keen to chat on buses than on planes, for some reason. Trains even more so ...

Red Arrow has service to Rocky Mountain House, but only one round trip, and only on Tuesdays. The Red Arrow Connector leaves Red Deer iHotel at 6:00 pm, after picking up at several other points in town, and reaches Rocky Mountain House at 7:15 pm. The trip to Red Deer leaves Rocky Mountain House at 6:05 am and arrives at iHotel at 7:20 am, afterward ...

With eurolines (http://eurolines.com), you can travel overnight between many countries. There are no beds, but rows of seats like in a plane, there is slightly more space and they recline more, so you can very well sleep. Seats are not as comfortable as in colombian buses, though (I've tried both). You could also try night trains, but they tend to be more ...

Wikitravel is your source for this. You can get to central London by: rail: The airport has its own railway station "Luton Airport Parkway", and is served by trains 24 hours a day from Central London using "First Capital Connect Trains" and connects with St Pancras International. There are up to 10 trains an hour, depending on the time of day. ...

I have been offered a bus ride between Basel and Zurich (along with 50 or so other passengers) to catch a flight to my final destination after a cancellation by SWISS so there is no taboo against that. They organized it pretty quickly as well, so they were apparently ready for that, should the need arise. I guess each airline will make specific decisions ...

Step-Free Access Research Just for kicks I used tfl's journey planner, and selected the option no stairs or escalators. I could not use your planned date (10th December 2014) because you can only plan ahead one month (so it'll have to wait for tomorrow. Here is the link to the suggested route. Below is a screenshot: The no stairs or escalators is a fancy ...

Many companies use a tag that you keep with your ticket, to prove you own the luggage. If this service is available, make sure to use it. If not, then some (Greyhound) provide a name ticket you can put your details on. Sure it doesn't prevent someone from taking it, but if anyone's suspicious it's easy to ask for ID and show it doesn't match the thief's ...
