I also vote for walking. You can save a little bit of time by being in the right part of the train, and then by avoiding a couple of annoyingly slow pedestrian crossings: Travel in the frontmost carriage if you can; that'll put you closest to the ticket barriers at Kings Cross. Get up and go to the doors as the train approaches the station. You want to ...

I am not convinced it is really related to travel, but in fact, there is an option if you are near Palo Alto Caltrain Station. SamTrans (San Mateo County Transit District) offers some night buses between San Francisco (Financial District) and Palo Alto Caltrain station. This is the line 397 that has 3 buses per night from Palo Alto Caltrain station, ...

If you buy a day pass, you don't need to buy a €7.5 OV-chipkaart but will get a disposable chip-card instead. You do need to check in and check out like a regular OV-chipkaart each time you use public transports. According to the same website, those passes are not valid on trains. I haven't checked in the last few weeks but until recently, it was still ...

You are correct that most people travel by car. The main roads are excellent and signage is impeccable. The best I've seen anywhere! There are even maps along the road every few hundred kilometers. The other main form of transportation are buses. Within a city, they are easy to take and there is also an extensive network of bus routes. Most, if not all, are ...

There are no trains; Iceland has no rail-based public transport. The systems that do exist (bus) are under-developed, and while there are nation-wide bus and coach services, many of the locals will use internal flights to get across the country. Iceland actually has one of the highest rates of car ownership in the world (similar to the US) which has led to ...

Getting to La Roche-Bernard from Nantes is not easy. On this map of the region around La Roche-Bernard you can see that there is two bus lines going there. So you're alternatives are: Get a train to Vannes (1h10 to 2h) and take bus 8 to La Roche-Bernard (1 hour). This bus only runs Mo-Fr for some connections (LMMeJV) and Mo-Sa for others (LMMeJVS), there's ...

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 ...

A stated by ColeS you can take the train. It's convenient and confortable. You will have to take the bus from the airport to the train station. You can even travel cheaper though. The Charleroi has a special ticket that combines train and bus. It's fixed price for any place in Belgium and costs 19,10Euro. Check the train company website for more ...

Rome2Rio.com is great for searching for this sort of thing. The train station in Charleroi is a little south of the airport, so you'll probably have to take a bus or taxi to the train, but there's a good rail connection between the two cities. According to Rome2Rio, the bus and train will cost you under $50 USD (you can change currencies on the website ...

You can easily visit Mysore within a day. I stay in Bangalore and Mysore is about 150 odd kms only. Train is a bit of an issue when it comes to availability. I usually take a motorcycle. There are lots of really nice places along the highway. Couple of must try delicacies like Biddady's Tadde idly. I would suggest you enjoy the journey as well by going by a ...

I ended up reshuffling plans a bit so I didn't need to do this, but I'll share what I found. The Amtrak baggage storage service is just for Amtrak passengers, but they do provide the service for local routes, so potentially you could buy a ticket for the Pacific Surfliner to Glendale (the closest station) to store your bags. Looking at prices for today, ...

Did that last year- starting from San Carlos station. The train parking lot was quite empty on the weekend (a small charge for parking). Looked like a safe place to leave the car. It's only two zones from San Carlos (or Redwood City), so it was only $5/trip per person (and half that for the under-18) and 51 minute train trip each way. We just walked ...

In an amusing coincidence, the Melbourne subreddit today deviated into a discussion on transport apps, and one of the ones suggested was Offi - a multi-city public transport app. The cities/countries it claims to support: Supported countries: • Europe • United Kingdom • Ireland • USA (San Francisco, Philadelphia) • Australia (Sydney, New South Wales, ...

There are a range of options to get into town (Manuel Tienda Leon - a shuttle company, local buses or taxi) - see the piece on Wikitravel. EZE is about 30-45 min from downtown by taxi, although during busy times it can be longer. From town to AEP, it's easier - about 20 minutes by taxi. Your best bet given your tight time-frame is to get a taxi from one ...

Unfortunately, you won't be able to get such discounts. Only students in Swedish universities or other eligible educational institutes can obtain such cards, and those are period cards for 30 or 90 days. If you are staying only for a short time in Stockholm(which is not immediately apparent from your question), you may take advantage of the visitor tickets ...

I've done the walk from Church Street in Luton up to the airport before. It's not going to win any awards for "picturesque walk of the year", but as long as you're fit it's fine. There's a massive hill to walk up, but there's footpaths and lights along the whole way. 25 mins seems a little short to me though, I'd allow a tiny bit longer However... Church ...

The google maps page you link isn't an accurate representation of the walk - your end point isn't really anywhere near the airport terminals. This is a bit more realistic. I'd reccommend getting a taxi - £8 or less for the journey would be my estimate. Your concerns about walking are in fact perfectly justified - the route to the airport from the town centre ...

My parents live in Anuradhapura and I live in Kandy, and I make this trip up and down at least once a month. The earliest Intercity from A/pura to Kandy is at 4.30-5PM from A/pura. Reaches Kandy at about 7.30AM, depends on the traffic. The last bus departs at 7.30PM, reaches Kandy at 9.30-10PM but you will not find any other buses in A6 road (Kandy to ...

If you're traveling light, your best bet is probably to use a luggage service like http://www.laxluggagestorage.com/. Their rates seem reasonable, but I have no experience with the company. If you've got more bags, you might be able to book a day room (hotel room just for the day). It would be a convenient base for your day trips, and provide a place to ...

You can use an OV-chipkaart (personal or anonymous) to travel on trains in the Netherlands but you will need to activate it at a NS vending machine and to have at least €20 credit (boarding fee) when getting on the train. It's fine to go from Schiphol to the centre since you can probably use up the remaining credit during your stay in Amsterdam but it's a ...

As it is, the only public transport option from Melbourne Airport (known locally as Tullamarine) to the city centre is the privately run SkyBus, which will set you back $18. The Airport is connected to the city by freeway, and you can expect congestion during peak hours. Alternatively, you could take one of the suburban public buses which connect to the ...
