It's typical, but it's not a country-wide standard or anything: the reason is that Japanese put a lot of money and effort into train research, and the latest model trains on major lines are pretty snazzy. For example, the current JR Yamanote Line trains (E231-500) have displays that show the next station, its transfers, stairs and escalators in relation to ...

You can find the answer in the website you linked: The one-day card is valid on the date inscribed until the end of operating hours, the two-day card is valid on the day inscribed and the following day until the end of operating hours. In your case you need a two-day card.

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

At this time the only way to check your MetroCard balance is by using a machine in a subway station. This is because while MetroCard does have a central database of all transactions, it is not accessible in real time, and the balance (or unlimited ride expiration) is encoded directly on the card's magnetic stripe each time you swipe it at a turnstile or ...

Depending on your plans in Brussels, Villo might be suitable for you as well. It is a public bicycle system, similar to Velib in Paris, where all over Brussels bicycles are available for you to use. The idea is simple once subscribed you can take bicycle in one of the racks and cycle around for free initially. After 30 minutes of cycling, you'll need to pay ...

The Mu is actually a 4 and a M. It's a special fare if you book four seats around a table at once. The fare shown is for one seat but you must book all four (e.g. for a group or family). If you have a party of four people, it can be a very good deal but you can also choose that to have the comfort of seating on your own. P is “promo” (“discount”), ...

Tateyama is probably the easiest mountain to reach in the Japan Northern Alps by public transportation thanks to Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route which connects the east and west bases of the mountain (in Nagano Prefecture and Toyama Prefecture) by a series of public transportation lines, so that would be my recommendation. As for a campground, there is one ...

You can buy it for € 24,00 at any automatic vending machine located in every metro station or at almost any newsagent in Rome. With the weekly pass you can ride all the buses, trams, metros and trains within the validity ...

I realise that this an older question, but I've done this journey many times, and The easiest way in my opinion is to take the first capital connect service, as stated in the other answers, but to remain on until Farringdon. Farringdon is a much easier change when you have luggage as the railway lines run in parallel with the underground. It also has a ...

A couple of days ago I compiled all the practical transportation options for a Nice to Monaco trip. I though you guys might like to see all the possibilities, costs and advantages of each option. As I grew up in Monaco, I have tested all the possibilities for you, from the bus to the bike trip... SUMMARY of the information available on the link. Nice ...

As Paul mentioned, there is a corporate culture of providing as much as possible. There is also a deeper cultural reason lots of messaging is provided as well. From a very young age, Japanese are used to getting directions and information. When you park in a mall, you'll usually have someone guiding you. There are more doormen, elevator attendants, parking ...

Japan (lived here 12 years) has a corporate-cultural belief that you must do as much as possible, all the time. So the screen (or light) above the door says it will open, the screen above the opposite door says it will not, and the prerecorded announcement says, in very clear Japanese, wether the left or right side door will open. This will often be followed ...

Long-distance and suburban trains terminate at the Roman Termini train station. From the train station, you need to change to the Metro station. Metro trains run undergound on dedicated tracks. When you disembark the train, follow the white-on-red M signs towards the Metro station. In the Metro station, you'll find ticket vending machines, then fare gates ...

Basically your best bet would be to use the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District's South Shore line to take a train to Chicago. Personally having driven on both I-94 and I-90 South East Chicago, Gary, and Hammond might not be the best places one might leave a car, so I would suggest going to South Bend as it might be a little out of the way, ...

Albeit obscure, this was the only information I was able to find on your issue, Manali-Kaza: When this 210 km route is open, there are two daily ordinary buses leaving from Manali Bus Stand to Kaza at 5.00 AM and 5.30 AM. These buses are run by Himachal Roadways and fare is approximately INR 200. The bus passes through Rohtang Pass, Batal, Kunzum Pass, ...

I use Google Maps or Apple Maps, but you could use any mapping software that shows your position via GPS. Find your target city and compare your current position with the destination. You should be able to trace back your position on marked railway lines on the map back too where you are.

I think it is semi-random, but mostly a function of the year the system was engineered or retrofitted. Newer systems have more of an I.T. backbone to feed the components. Old systems (NYC?) could not have had it in 1880, and monopoly operation of these systems don't generate much incentive for user friendliness. Portland's (Oregon) Max light rail trains ...

Back from Sicily, renting a car was definitely the best advise especially for people interested in natural sites. Some major natural sites are indeed not accessible if you do not have a car, or they are only at some times. For the Etna, we were lucky enough to be present during the eruption. But you only see it at night when there is no more buses. There ...

Using the Istanbulkart (Istanbul's Oyster Card) you can make it to Taksim with 4.75 TL. Atatürk - Zeytinburnu (M1A): 2.15 TL Zeytinburnu - Kabatas (T1): 1.45 TL Kabatas - Taksim (F1): 1.15 TL Buying 3 Jetons would make 12 TL instead. Using the Istanbulkart is only useful if you use public transportation more than that one time since it costs 6 TL to get ...
