On megabus.co.uk, you can find an Amsterdam - London ticket for 17.50 pounds. Then, a London to Dublin ticket can set you back as little as 15 pounds. Both connections include a ferry. Occasionally, Megabus offers deals of 10 pounds for each of the above legs. But, note that trying to book the whole journey as one trip is almost always (if not always) more ...

It is always hard to tell about safety because people have very different criteria about safety. Having used the public transportation, buses in particular, in San Francisco, including poorer neighborhoods, I would consider it safe. I am a tall white man though, so the feeling of security might be different. San Francisco buses are the places that show the ...

You can go by train for a bit less money than Amtrak by using the commuter services: take the Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, and then take a Metrolink Orange County Line train from Oceanside to Los Angeles. The regular adult fare for the Coaster from San Diego Santa Fe Depot to Oceanside is currently $5.50, and Metrolink from Oceanside to Los Angeles ...

There's also an option of a direct shuttle connection. ETS Air Shuttle has scheduled minibuses between JFK and EWR. The cost is $32 each way and, depending on the traffic, it takes 60-90 minutes. It may seem expensive, but it's a direct terminal to terminal connection without any additional transfers or requirements to drag your luggage around.

Your cheapest option is probably a flight, but this is not certain. Easyjet appears to have cheap flights between Amsterdam and Belfast, although I'm not sure how many hidden fees are added to their advertised price. If not flying, between Amsterdam and London, a cheap option is the Dutch Flyer, which will set you back £49: Dutch Flyer connects you from ...

Any public strikes that takes place in India, do not affect the tourist areas at all. Most of the strikes if at all, are concentrated around government buildings and offices and as a tourist you should not face any difficulty in finding food and lodging places. That being said, let me assure you that strikes are not very common and do not affect the day to ...

You can find complete information on the LIRR and subway at http://mta.info. Generally, the LIRR is faster, more comfortable, and more expensive. The LIRR takes 20 minutes from Jamaica to Penn Station. It is a commuter train with regular coach cars; there is a seat for every passenger and overhead racks for small bags. The regular adult fare is $9.50 ...

In 2011, US News and World Report rated San Francisco 13th best in the US for public transit. I agree with Vince that it's pretty safe overall but you might want to avoid certain lines, particularly at night. (But like Vince I'm also a large white guy, so...) Here's a list from 2010 of the top 10 bus lines for reported crime incidents. As a city resident ...

According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Subway website, the only places that the 3-day pass ("Tokyo Subway 3-Day Ticket") is available in the Tokyo metropolitan area are Haneda and Narita airports and Bic Camera (Yurakucho, Shinjuku, Akasaka Mitsuke, Ikebukuro, Shibuya East, Shibuya Hachiko, Shinjuku East, Shinjuku West, and Sofmap Akihabara). If you buy it at ...

It's very unlikely to set off the metal detectors. Think about how many people walk through wearing eyeglasses, or in the good old days, shoes (which often contain small metal pieces). If it does set off the detector, do not panic. Just tell them you have this thing, they can touch your finger, and they will probably wave their metal-detector wand around ...

You have multiple options to link the two cities early in the day, including AC buses. The buses from Colombo to Anuradhapura are frequent, but few are AC buses. The schedule from the Sri Lanka Transport Board between the two cities show buses leaving at 2.15 AM, 3.15 AM, 5.15 AM, 8.45 AM and then every 30-45 minutes until 9.30 PM. They all take 6 to 7 ...

Yes, strikes and demostrations are common in Kerala, but are absolutely peaceful. There are no safety reasons to be afraid to find a demostration or to live an strike day. To understand why there are no safety concerns, you have to understand that these acts are due a curios political situation: Kerala government is communist and India central government is ...

This answer is based on my own experience: I have had four different Passes Navigo with four different photos over the years, including the Passe Navigo Decouverte, and helped many family members and colleagues get their own Passe Navigo Decouverte or other types of Pass Navigo set up. These have all been checked regularly by the ticket controllers in Paris ...

The best, and easiest, way into Venice IMHO is via train to Venezia Santa Lucia station. Arabba however doesn't have a train station. There are several ways to get to the train stations in the neighbouring cities, spanning various price ranges. Bottom line is, logistics to/from these ski resorts are everything but easy. Taxi it to Bolzano You could get a ...

Details vary depending on which station(s) you'll be using. In general, trains are announced on video screens and/or by audio announcements. Video screens are more common at larger stations and list the next several upcoming trains with arrival time, line name and track number. Audio announcements indicate a track number, train number, and time until ...

I was there for Google I/O last year and the public transit seemed very safe to me. I used it to visit the touristy places like Fisherman's Wharf and the Golden Gate bridge from the Civic Center/Market St. area. Like the others so far, though, I too am a tall male. I would consider the public transit safer than walking, especially at night in some areas, ...

Rome2rio says bus via Puntarenas, for a total cost between 24-35EUR. The international bus company is Transnica. The second segment is a local bus N. 675. For completeness sake note that Transnica has some not-so-positive feedback on tripadvisor dating 2013. I don't know if the situation has changed since then, but it might be worth asking around in ...

I will offer a slightly different opinion. I am a 6'3" and 220lbs+ white male and San Francisco is on the bottom of my favorite places ( I travel an awful lot ) somewhere in line with Amsterdam. In particular, I never felt unsafe on the (trolley) buses I take but the surface area of the 16th and the Powell BART stations make me very uncomfortable especially ...

Every tourist takes a cable car. That's why the fare is triple the standard. (If you are into museums, there is a combined museum transit "City Pass" that may be worth it.) Personally, I like the old streetcars that run up Market Street on the surface to Fisherman's Wharf. Unless you come from the handful of cities with their own historic streetcars (=trams, ...
