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 ...

FlexiBus and Meinferinbus offer Free Wi-Fi, but no electric socket. As far as I know berlinlinienbus doesn't offer Wi-Fi nor electric socket. Eurolines offers Wi-Fi and electric socket in the Eurolines Business class buses

Surprinsingly enough, different national version of the Eurolines websites offer different type of information : the timetable page on the British site, on the German site and on the Spanish site provide you a bunch of timetable you can download which might look like what you are looking for. Please note that on the website from a given country, I only ...

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 ...

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. ...

There are a few other companies in the UK, although none are particularly great - it's not huge distances so they go for packing you in, more than anything. Megabus - if you get tickets well in advance, they can be incredibly cheap. They also have a sleeper service from London to Glasgow/Edinburgh. Eurolines - although as they're an associate company of ...

Google Maps is your friend when it comes to public transport in the Bay Area. Just plug in your start and end, and it'll give you multiple options. Specifically for your route, it will depend a little on the exact time of day, but will start with catching the (free!) VTA 10 bus from the Airport to Santa Clara Caltrain Station (be careful to get the one ...

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 ...

Another altenative maybe to consider the train, if of course you can find a cheap ticket or one that is similar to the price you would pay on either National Express or the other companies mentioned in Mark's answer. Cheap train tickets is a resource zone for finding cheaper train tickets. It's packed with hidden tips and tricks for cheap rail fares.

It's quite easy, fortunately! Stanici is on the the Adriatic Main Road, and as you say, quite close - 5km from Omis. This is conveniently between Split and Makarska. If you just go to the general bus terminal in Split, there is a local bus service to Omis every half an hour. However, you can actually use any city bus service between Split and Imotski, ...

Possibly the cheapest non-hitchhiking option On Eurolines, I find tickets from Lille to Lyon for €58 (youth). If you add to this a local train from Brussels to Lille and local transportation from Lyon to Tignes, this is likely your cheapest option: Train Brussels – Lille: Belgian railways, €15 Eurolines bus Lille – Lyon: Eurolines, €58 Train Lyon – ...

You've identified most of the standard options. Almost all travel between Denver and Fort Collins is by private car (as is almost all travel in general in the U.S., outside of a handful of corridors between large cities), and relatively few people are expected to take Amtrak to Denver in order to get to Fort Collins, so the schedules are not coordinated. ...

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 ...

In most cases you can buy tickets before departure. But there can be problems during russian holidays. At least 4 dayly buses are available from different companies. And only one company offers you online booking: http://ecolines.net/

So there are two options. 1) You're planning on doing a Salt Flats tour, if you're going to Uyuni? Most of these run from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama in Chile, or vice versa, and take 3ish days. It's well worth it and you should consider that if you haven't already, as it'll make the next part really easy. Once you're in San Pedro, there are buses over ...

Public transit is often managed by local governments and therefore lines end at the border of their territory. I suppose the train continues to Italy for international cooperation or historical reason (also simply because there is a need for public transit). But other transit systems don't go as far as Italy, buses are managed by the Departement des Alpes ...

They made a press release in 2010 about this service. The advertised domain for this service, specially targeted at backpackers, does not exist anymore, so I would assume this service is discontinued. If you are willing to pay a bit more (¥2,700), you can use the Airport limousine bus to bring you from Narita to Asakusa.

You're traveling during high season so everything is going to be packed. I would still suggest going to Koh Tao still though. They have 2-3 of the top 5 OW schools in the world (By # of students). You'll have the best dive sites and the cheapest certification (~9000 baht). I did mine through Big Blue in Koh Tao. Also, I'd always be interested in where ...

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 ...

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 ...

The Buses that go from City to City in Mexico are much better than city buses, and would be the cheapest way to travel, and the way the locals travel. Cars rented in Baja is normally a better arrangement than taking a rental from the US into Mexico. Mexicali is the capital and does not have much of a service/tourist industry. Mexicali has a unique place in ...

In your case the best option is to buy a return ticket to Lund (270 kr). It's valid for 24 hours and covers the public transport in Lund as well (trains and buses). You can buy it with a credit card or with a Jojo card. The Jojo card gives you 20% discount of the price of a ticket. The validity of the ticket is exactly the same whether you buy it with a ...

The train trip alone costs 135 SEK one-way with Öresundståg from Kastrup to Lund C. That makes 270 in both directions, plus whatever you'll pay for bus fare (for local traffic, that's probably going to be around 100-200 SEK total, depending on where you are going). I'd definitely buy the card, it does save a lot of hassle, although admittedly not very handy ...

The easiest path is through Phnom Penh and Chau Doc. This is an established traveler path. Going through Ha Tien is possible, though more adventurous. You will be very much on local transportation, unreliable and overcrowded. I'm not confident it will end up being quicker or cheaper than going through Phnom Penh, but you may get lucky. If you are at a ...

I've traveled extensively by bus through this region, and while I'm aware that you've long since completed your travel, I'll answer this for the benefit of anyone who comes here in future... As opposed to Greyhound, the largest US bus company, Trailways buses do not typically have reservations, and booking in advance does not guarantee you a seat. Seats are ...

The Delhi Transport Corporation has its own home page where it lists the schedule for different bus routes in a downloadable Excel spreadsheet. (Different routes are listed in different "sheets" within the spreadsheet so switch using the tabs at the bottom.) There's a second spreadsheet for fare stages that lists all stops on a particular route (you need to ...

Sort of. If you use the multipurpose RometoRio site to search for routes between those two cities, you can see that there's a bus that takes 3 hours, with a link to sol del paraguay to buy it. However, it is in Spanish. If you have Google Chrome, however, there's usually a popup 'translate this page' option which will try and convert it into English onthe ...

Depending on where your meeting is, and what else you plan to do in the Los Angeles area, consider doing neither, and renting a car instead. "Los Angeles" is not just one place, but rather a huge sprawling expanse. Once you get there, you are still likely to be far from where you want to be, with no way to get to your intended destination unless you have a ...

One of our (Australia) local travel agents has a page on Canadian bus passes, and it only lists western Canada as having them: With circuits in Western Canada (Vancouver side) and Eastern Canada (Toronto side), Canada's bus network has itineraries to suit just about anyone’s needs. Passes in Western Canada have frequent departures and all feature ...
