The buses that London sold to Malta are unfortunately, no longer in Malta. All 80 Mercedes buses have been exported to Sudan after they caused congestion, caught fire and were generally disliked, it seems. Indeed, the article notes, in addition to the fires: In offering the buses for sale, Transport Malta had laid down that they cannot be returned to ...

There are several options to travel from the aiport to city center. A few notes about terminal 2 Terminal 2 is departures only.

Well, the Kurfürstendamm or Ku'Damm is quite long. Depending on where you're staying the route might differ. But here are two examples: If you're near the west end of Ku'Damm, take the Ringbahn (S41) from S Halensee to S Westkreuz and change for the S7. Take the S7 (from S+U Bhf Zoologischer Garten if staying in that region) to S Wannsee. From S Wannsee, ...

Walk to the Wilhelminaplein metro station, and take the D (or E) train towards Rotterdam Centraal (or Den Haag Centraal).

Lived in Melbourne, Australia for a year, lots of trams there. You'll frequently hear the driver announce 'we're just holding here for a bit for spacing' or 'to meet our schedule'. So it's entirely possible for them to pause and widen the gaps, and so on. For example, the 109 ends in Port Melbourne at a 'dead end' (ie no turnaround). At that point they ...

No, there are multiple zones, mostly you have to cross from one zone to another, hence pay more. Here's the metro zone map: They sell 16-ticket slips for 200 SEK, you need two units (tickets) if you're traveling within a single zone, three units when in two zones (e.g. from A to B) and four if you're traveling between three zones. The easiest way would ...

http://www.vta.org/getting-around/Riders-Tips/Dos-and-Donts No food on VTA. From the bus link provided in the first answer, "Food consumption is not allowed on VTA buses. Non-alcoholic drinks can be consumed if in a sealed commuter mug. No plastic or paper cups." So a normal "sealed" commuter mug is fine. Although the links don't explicitly say a commuter ...

Irish Ferries operates a bus from Bus Áras. It's very infrequent but apparently it's in accordance with the ferry timetable. Edit: the bus takes 15 minutes between Bus Áras and the Ferryport. The 747 stops at Talbot Street, Talbot Place about 150m from the bus station. According to timetable it takes 30 minutes. Obviously traffic can change this.

On the map page of the STIB that you mention, you just have to click on "Consultez le plan dynamique" to open the dynamic map. Trains are the dash white and blue lines. Stations have a logo with a white train on a blue background. In practice you don't have to bother about this. Whenever the train is an option, the STIB journey planner will show it and ...

Metro is best - really simple, cheap (compared to places like London or New York), and quick. Just follow the 'M' logos to get to the airport Metro station. You need to take the pink line and change at S. Sebastiao, switching to the light blue line and getting off at Baixa-Chiado (the absolute centre of Lisbon). Good luck - It's a lovely city!

Paper coupon strips are no longer accepted. You can buy a card at the Central station SL center among other places, and fill it with cash or tickets at the vending ...

Yes it does. The English description is not up to date. There is also a "JUMP 1 day ticket", which is valid until the end of the day it has been obliterated. This one is still available as a "traditional" magnetic card.

Which Embera Community? I believe there are several Embera communities (including but not limited to Embera Drua (Upper Chagres), Embera Puru and Arimae), and hence various different places one can be picked up along the Chagres on the way to the village. Hence this question is kind of on the broadish side according to TSE's regulations. Nevertheless I ...

Bus Is Cheapest But You Need a METROBUS Card The English version of the Tocumen Airport webpage on public transport mentions only taxis, which makes it easy to assume that taxis are the only form of public transport connecting the airport to the city. This is not the case however, as the Spanish version of the Tocumen Airport webpage on public transport ...

One way out of the 'need €20 on the OV chip card for the train journey' on the way back to Schiphol is using a bus. I recently researched and found that there is a bus from Leidseplein which does not take more time than traveling from Leidseplein to Centraal station and on to the airport. Bus 197 which costs € 3.09 on your chip card. I used http://9292.nl/en ...

I needed to store my luggage in Hollywood because I had a 12 AM flight and arrived early in the day from another city, so all I did was order a cheap bunk at a backpacker's place. Then the good thing was I got to take a shower before getting on the flight.

I took the Tunnel Bus. The driver did not ask any identification. I suppose that with such a local bus running back and forth all the time, it is easy for them to take people back if they are denied entry. So, with the Tunnel Bus you need to convince only the border security.
