You're not alone. Aside from the addition of a swipe card reader and of the SmarTrip pad over the years, the user interface of WMATA's farecard vending machines is definitely atrocious, especially for a city and system that sees such a large number of tourists. The situation has been made even worse because of the addition of the $1 surcharge for paper ...

Coaches in Cuba - Astro and Viazul There are two main coach companies providing island-wide transport in Cuba: AstroBus and Viazul. Astro caters mostly to Cuban residents and intrepid travellers. Most of the seats are available for purchase only to residents with a valid ID, and just a few are available for foreigners albeit at higher rates. Overall its ...

There are various low-budget hotels offering basic rooms around Paris. Hotels Formule 1 (F1) by Accor is one such franchise. The rooms are pretty basic, in other words you get what you pay for. These hotels are usually found outside the city, and (arguably) for this reason offer free car parking to their guests. Quoting from the linked Wikipedia page, here ...

Nationwide strikes have become more common in the last couple of years but they seldom last that long. Last week's strike was the last one in a series but with 8 days it was the longest in many years. Also, I have travelled during strikes. It's a bit more difficult because you have to be prepared for delays, crowded trains, and impromptu announcements in ...

Step 1: Select Purchase The simplest option is to choose the farecard option here: that gives you a ticket with X dollars on it (which you specify in the next step). You use that ticket when entering and exiting a station, ...

It is unpredictable if there will be a strike on June 21st. However, based on experience from past strikes, I wouldn't worry too much if you are somewhat flexible regarding either departure or arrival. Not all train drivers participate in the strike, and the affected train operator (Deutsche Bahn) has managed each time to publish a reduced timetable ahead ...

A simple search on booking.com shows that there are rooms available in the city starting from 68 euro per night for a double room on a date that I've chosen randomly since I don't know your dates. I set the minimum review score as 7, since the ones lower than that have been very disappointing to my experience. There is the map option, where you could see ...

There is a helpful site from Washington DC Metropolitan Transit Authority dealing specifically with the subject at hand. Included on that page is the FAQ and a Video.

All of the subway stations are within zone A, but some buses and trains reach outer zones. A single ride is 36 SEK, but if you have a prepaid travel card (costs 20 SEK) it goes down to 25 SEK. 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 ...

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 ...

Take the Airport Railroad to Seoul Station and from there a "Mugunghwa" train to Daejeon. The "all stop" train (1 hour journey) from the airport to Seoul costs 3950 KRW. There is an express train doing the journey in 30 minutes. It costs 8000 KRW. http://english.arex.or.kr/jsp/eng/information/use_information.jsp The train from Seoul top Daejeon (journey ...

Did you have a look at those sites ? https://www.airbnb.fr/ https://www.sejourning.com/ http://www.bedycasa.com/ Here is a comparison (in french) of the three ones among other competitors: On the other hand, you could try to find a flat in Clichy. It is well connected with the subway. There are 10mn only between Mairie de Clichy and Gare Saint-Lazare. ...

My favorite way to get between the two used to be on a United Express Embraer-120 operated by SkyWest, which gave you a grand aerial tour of the LA basin and, at the time, 500 frequent flyer miles for 34 flight miles. Sadly, those flights were discontinued some years ago. Shared Van As with DAL-DFW, MIA-FLL, or HOU-IAH then, the most direct and economical ...

I would suggest a shared-ride van. At the airport, they put you in a van with several other people whose destination is in the same vicinity as yours, and then take all of you to where you are going. You get door-to-door service like a taxi but for much cheaper. Of course it is somewhat slower than a taxi because of the extra stops, and you may also wait ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

Disneyland Resort Express Rome2Rio says that you can be there in 2 hours using buses, for a total approximate cost of 48 - 53USD. The journey includes taking a Gray Line AH bus to Disneyland Hotel, followed by another Gray Line AH bus to SNA airport. This is a somewhat unorthodox approach, and might not be compatible with your departure and landing times, ...

Buy a SmartTrip card. When you arrive at the kiosk, wave your SmartTrip card across the white circular reader on the kiosk. The kiosk will show you your balance. Add additional funds. (You can check your station destination to get an exact amount.) The kiosk will remind you wave your card across the reader to complete the transaction. Use the card to ...

It seems regardless how you travel it will involve several taxi rides, so when traveling by yourself like I mostly do, it is very helpful to find some other people going the same way. This saves a lot of money. I went from Mashhad to Ashgabat in June 2014, I had already met a Chinese girl also going to Turkmenistan in my home stay and we met two Japanese ...
