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 ...

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

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.

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

When I was in Brazil, I used Busca Onibus website. It lists times, company, price and class (type) of bus. However, not all bus companies are included.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The Keisei Skyliner also offers two more options which are cheaper than the Airport Limousine Bus. They offer from Narita Terminal 1/2 a train to Asakusa for ¥1,280 (about $12.5) on the Narita Sky Access Line and ¥1,090 (about $10) on the Keisei Main Line. Here's a full PDF map for the same.

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 ...

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 ...

When I asked a taxi company for a small bus they listed 5 hryvnas/km for the whole 7-seats bus. There are companies that can take you over the Ukrainian border, and they charge 7 hryvnas/km for the part of trip which is not in Ukraine.

If you look for cheaper and not quicker, there is also Megabus which offer prices starting for 15€. You can compare price for that line here: www.comparabus.com/en/bus-Bruxelles-Paris-3-10

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
