UK National Rail Conditions of Carriage Restrictions Any Train Company may refuse to accept an item of luggage, an article, an animal or a cycle, even though it meets the requirements set out in Condition 47 and 48 and Appendix B, if, in the opinion of its staff: (a) it may cause injury, inconvenience or a nuisance or it may cause ...

One by one: Yes, Indonesian ferries are that bad. Overcrowding is rife, safety precautions are often non-existent, and the open sea can often be rough. As a simple example, Jakarta Globe's category "Indonesia boat accident" has at least 7 separate sinkings that killed people for 2014 alone, and see the links in this answer for some stories of a typical ...

The Point is This special offer from DB Bahn enables visitors to travel on all scheduled trains operated by DB Bahn Buses, U-Bahns and trams are not operated by DB. In big cities like Frankfurt you can use the S-Bahn to travel inside the cities though. So you are not limited to the central stations only. The situation about using S-bahn in Berlin ...

It's a bit more complicated than both other answers let on. You can use trains operated by “DB Bahn”. This includes most long-distance, regional and urban trains but not necessarily all of them as some trains are operated by private companies. The pass does also cover most “S-Bahn” within one city but, again, not all of them. In particular, the S-Bahn in ...

You have a number of choices: Take the TTC. For example, subway to Kipling (west end of line 2, transfer from line 1 at St George), then "rocket" bus line 192 to the airport. It will cost you $3.00. You may not enjoy dealing with your luggage and you may have to change a bit, eg streetcar to subway, change subway at Yonge/Bloor, then subway to bus. Take ...

Basically, everything is now an “OV-chipkaart”. There are three main types of cards, all with an RFID chip in it: personal (for people with a discount card, yearly rail card and the like), “anonymous” (for infrequent use) and disposable (for punctual use). Depending on the card, you can load credit and travel using a pay-as-you-go system or directly load a ...

I know this question is old, but the problem is still relevant. If you already have a ticket for Zone 100 and 200 you can buy a "Streifenkarte" (https://vag.tickeos.de/index.php/product/34/show/0/0/0/0) and stamp one strip for each zone. Example: You already have a ticket for The zones 100 and 200 and you want to go to Erlangen by train, you have to stamp ...

Adding a new answer since this needs an update: there's now a new choice in town, namely the Opal card. At time of writing (Oct 2014), it can be used on all trains and ferries plus most buses, but not the light rail; by sometime in mid-2015, it should cover the lot. Opal is your standard pay-per-use 'smartcard', just tap on and tap off every time you get ...

Unfortunately there is no pass at the moment. RoutPass disappeared after 2012. Since it was offered several bus companies in the network were taken over by multi-national transportation companies, services have since been, and continue to be, restructured and moved between operators especially in Quebec and the Maratimes. At Busbud we're building a search ...

Your best bet is going to be shared taxis. I've taken a taxi from Khiva to Urgench, and the problem isn't finding a taxi, it's finding one that is almost full. The issue is that it's a big culture of shared taxis there. You negotiate your seat to Urgench, and then wait for the other seats to be negotiated. When it's full, the car drives to the ...

Taxi would be more than EUR 150-200 (one way) I think. This website suggests it could be up to EUR 260. Public transportations are good in the Netherlands but the park is out of town and 2 hours is long. Maybe taking a cab to the station on both ends (Amsterdam and 's-Hertogenbosch) and a train in-between could cut the time and be a good compromise. Renting ...

Note - as Vince importantly pointed out, Les Arcs (gare == bourg-st-maurice) is perhaps the French ski station which is best-served by train! For the record, I just clicked here http://www.voyages-sncf.com and entered "Bruxelles" "Bourg Saint Maurice" There are a number of connections of about 7-8 hours, generally via Lyon. Or you could fly to Chambery ...

Yes, you can travel inside all German cities as long as you use transport systems operated by the DB or others included in the Rail Pass. (list of services covered) Most buses, trams and subways are not covered. Taken from ACPRail: The German Rail Pass is valid on all trains within Germany operated by Deutsche Bahn (DB). You can also travel to the ...

Arrow / Black Hills Stages have an early bus, but it's unclear if it only stops in Greeley or also in Ft. Collins. Greyhound lists this bus as departing from Ft. Collins (5:45am) but Arrow / Black Hills lists it only from Greeley. You may want to call them to confirm. This bus is scheduled to arrive Denver Greyhound station at 6:40am. It's a 12 minute walk ...

The GVB day pass costs 21 euros for 4 days (96 hours). You can use it in the tram, bus, metro of the GVB public transport company. See http://www.gvb.nl/ovinmamsterdam/Pages/bestdeal.aspx However if you want to use the OV-chipkaart you will have to have at least 20 euros on the card to travel with it. For example; You have 20 euros on the OV-kaart, and ...

There are shared airport shuttles from Van Ness to National that early. Super Shuttle fare is about $14, there may be other shuttle companies.

This doesn't exist. In general this type of data has not been much mobilized in Brazil, despite the Law of Access to Information and the Open Government/Open Data movement. The link you provide says that the online tool will be released for mobile phones too, but doesn't say when, and knowing the Brazilian bureaucracy's glacial pace of achivement, I ...

I´m in the business of doing airport transfers here, this is a tight, but doable connection, and we suggest you get to AEP the fastest way you can, which would be to hire a reliable private chauffeured car service, who will be waiting for you with a sign right as you arrive. 4 hours is the bare minimum we suggest for this transfer, as your arriving flight ...

For the cheapest way avoid the 747 and private buses. Get either the 16 or the 41 to the city centre (costs €3.05; paid to the driver). From Terminal 1 walk out the main exit from Arrivals cross the road and walk through the car park atrium. You'll find the bus stop on the other side. Get off the bus at O'Connell Street in the city centre. It's a wide ...

When leaving JFK, get the free Airtrain shuttle to the Lefferts Blvd station stop then get off and get the Q10 bus to Ozone Park Lefferts Blvd subway station where you can get the A train to the city. Transfers are free between bus and subway when you use a metro card. Do the reverse to get to the airport.

Technically there's a $0.00 free-fare zone on the light rail train in Minneapolis as well as the tramway network in Tallinn, if you consider either of those a metro. Several metros aren't on PriceOfTravel.com list, but are just as cheap: $0.12 Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (1.50 UAH) $0.15 Kiev, Ukraine (2.00 UAH) $0.15 Kharkov, Ukraine (2.00 UAH) $0.24 ...
