Very short answer: Absolutely! You can get a ticket at the ticket office or the ticket machines in every station. You can use coins, notes (pounds) (you will get change unless otherwise indicated on the machine) or credit and cash cards. However, it is more expensive to buy paper tickets.

There is the possibility to buy a simple paper ticket, but it is not actively advertised on the web page: This page states that paper tickets are available. In order to look up the fares, you can use the fare calculator. For example, this link computes the cost for a one-way trip from Paddington Station to Heathrow. Note that three prices are given: A peak ...

As several online sources will show (shuttledirect, Wikivoyage and to quote taxipg): Taxi from Podgorica airport to Budva, Dubrovnik, Petrovac, Bar, etc. is the only way of transportation, because there is no shuttle bus... So you're really going to have to use a taxi if you don't want to take the train option you mentioned, sorry :/ You can book ...

SNCF terms & conditions, August 2015 edition: Si un train est annulé ou en retard et si le transporteur peut, par expérience, prévoir objectivement que le lieu de destination défini dans le contrat de transport sera atteint avec plus de 60 minutes de retard, le voyageur peut, dans les conditions énoncées au point 9.1.3 ci-dessous : a. exiger ...

As has been pointed out, going through Frankfurt (Main) may not be necessary. Busradar gives a good overview of your options for bus and rail travel (they even include blablacar). In case you have to go to Frankfurt (Main) for some reason, your best guess is the 14€ bus, I'm not aware of any alternatives.

It is not necessary to travel through Frankfurt. You can take a bus from Hahn to Koblenz and catch a train there. Many northbound trains from Frankfurt to Köln and onwards go through Koblenz. And the fare from Hahn to Koblenz is a bit lower: 11.20 EUR vs. 15 EUR (or 14 EUR if you buy the tickets online). => Buses to and from Hahn Airport The full fare for ...

The best option for clarification of which plus bus zone a location is is to input the postal code of the location. Using the third link you had http://plusbus.bushub.co.uk/maps/hitchin It shows all bus stops, plus if you zoom out it will give you a defined outline I then input the postcode of the business park And had this message And following ...

You take the train from Düsseldorf Airport to Bochum Hbf (main station) and change there to subway line U35, which will take you to the university. There are 3-4 trains per hour and the subway departs every five minutes, or even more often during rush hours. If you have a few minutes to spare, you might prefer the regional trains from Düsseldorf Airport to ...

Here you go: 全国鉄軌道路線図 ¥1,296 from Amazon.co.jp. Here's a blog review with some pictures of the map folded out. And yes, that's entirely in Japanese, I very much doubt such a thing exists in English. To get some idea of the effort that would entail, here's a closeup of another incomplete & partial map covering just the Tokyo metro area.

Well, yes it sounds weird because it is weird. The 50 CUC on "Kometa" is round trip (see here) that includes a transfer from bus station to Port as far as I can tell but as mentioned on the page: "expect a lousy ride". On the bus that is. The flights are available too. Served by Cubana for $82/pp round trip. So it's up to you what you would like to do. ...

There might be no buses between Ancona and Fano, however there seem to be buses between Rome and Fano. According to Rome2Rio these are operated by Adriabus and depart daily from Roma Tiburtina train station. The total travel time is of about 04h30m which looks shorter than your train journey with the included 1h30m waiting time in Ancona. Should you prefer ...

The answer to this is: Fairly. I didn't use a colectivo in the end myself - for our group and distance, a Taxi only cost 30 MXN more. The walk from the highway is real, but probably only 500m - 800m or so. There is a sidewalk on the highway overpass (if you need to get to/from that side of the road). Once over the highway there is a footpath seperated from ...

You can link up your railcard(cetain type only) and oyster card to get extra 1/3 off for off-peak trip. Contactless payment cannot do so

There are often buses to canakkale from istanbul but only the thing is mainly they are fully booked because of the 100th Anniversary of the world war 1. better you book your bus before you arrive in turkey. There is website they offer good services for bus booking http://www.ticketlineturkey.com and http://www.busticketline.com

Cheapest there are the buses by Terravision and a couple of other bus companies. If you book in advance you can get a one-way for as cheap as 4€. For info and booking see the Terravision website. It takes 55 minutes. Note that here you are not flexible with your departure time. Buying tickets at the booth is possible but at higher prices and may sell out, ...

According to Wikivoyage, the cheapest transport option is to use Terravision buses. The price is 4EUR one-way or 8EUR return. The trip takes 55 minutes. There are also options available by public bus, but they cost the same if you need to get to the center of Rome.

As usual, Hyperdia will show you all available train connections, just be careful to choose "Narita Airport Terminal 1" (or 2) as your departure station and not just "Narita" (the latter is located in downtown Narita city). The Narita Express is the only direct rail link between Narita airport and Shinjuku, but it is also the most expensive one. However, ...

It's years since I did this but the airport limousine bus went straight to the hotel (Shinjuku Washington in my case). It looks like it still does. This avoids the need to navigate Shinjuku station just after arriving in Japan, as well as the need to get from the station to the hotel with your luggage -- if the bus stops at your hotel (or the one next ...

The Narita Express train runs straight from Tokyo Narita to Shinjuku. Route map: Bear in mind that Shinjuku is a huge station and that it's quite easy to get lost or turned around in it. In light of that it may be helpful to figure out which exit you want to take in advance. Here's a map of the exists: ...

If you don't want to stay in the airport until morning, you can continue traveling through the night. The linchpin of this plan is Amtrak Train 65, which departs New York Penn Station at 3 AM and arrives at Philadelphia 30th Street Station at 4:35 AM. Schedule here. The "transit" option of Google Maps shows an itinerary that goes as follows: Airtrain ...

You can buy and use Oyster cards without registering them, so they allow you to travel anonymously, i.e., without giving a corporation the (immediate) ability to link your motion profile with your identity. (Of course, other factors might make it possible to predict your identity with some accuracy anyway.)

I don't understand the point of using your credit card instead of an Oyster card. You're just introducing more weight on the card and more reasons to lose it. I top my Oyster up with £20 and that lasts me a week+, no worries getting my debit card in and out all the time. The argument that it's faster to use your debit card is naught. If you walk up the ...

There are a number of discounts that are only available on Oyster - you can get these discounts loaded up on an Oyster card and they are then automatically applied at the ticket gate, but this can't be done for contactless cards. For a regular commuter, the most important of these is the Annual Gold Card discount. You get this for having any annual season ...

One of the issues that could be encountered when using Apple Pay or Google Wallet for your contactless travel is when your device runs out of battery after you've started a journey - you will not be able to "tap out" and then will be charged the full penalty fare. Most devices with contactless payment are still relatively new, but we all know that with ...

Weekly travelcard: Contactless weekly travelcard is only from Monday to Sunday, so if you arrive and leave mid-week, you might get better rates if you still get an Oyster card, and buy a weekly travelcard on that. On the other hand it might still be cheaper if you don't intend to travel every day for 7 days to just use your Contactless and use the daily ...

If your bank charges you a fee, as well as a percentage, for every transaction you make in a foreign currency, you could save quite a bit by topping up an oyster card once every so often as opposed to using a contactless payment card every day. For example my bank charges me 3€ + 2% for each non Euro transaction. This would mean paying an extra 3€ for every ...

Sections 5.4 and 5.5 of NS's General Terms & Conditions for Travellers ("Algemene Voorwaarden Reizigers" - Dutch document) contains the rules for transporting bikes and luggage. This is what they say: Folding Bikes (and rollators, mobility scooters and wheelchairs) Count as 'luggage' and are always allowed on the train for free, regardless of travel ...

The train part of this question hinges on the question whether a bicycle packed in a box should be considered as a bicycle or as large luggage. You can argue a lot about this (https://forum.ns.nl/overige-producten-6/meenemen-fiets-doos-de-spits-vanaf-schiphol-8640), but I think it will depend on the opinion of the conductor you meet on the day. If it's ...

1. Train You can get train tickets at DB bahn. If you buy in advance (say now) you can get saver fares ticket for a price of 39,00 EUR. This is for relatively faster connections: 4h 41min. If time is not an issue and you would not mind traveling 6h 35min and changing the train 4 time,there are options for 22,00 EUR. However later you buy more expencive your ...

As elsewhere in Western Europe, both are available, busses tend to be longer and somewhat cheaper. In both cases, there are discounts for advance purchase and the prices change depending on demand so you will have to check yourself to see how big the difference is for this particular trip. There is in any case a direct train from Amsterdam Central Station ...

It depends on the ticket you bought them. If you've been sensible, and bought them a CIV ticket from your origin to London International (more details from the man in Seat 61), then the CIV protections extend back to your original starting point. In that case, if anything delays you on your way to St Pancras, be that your train or the underground, then CIV ...

City to city buses are considerably cheaper than trains (you can often get tickets for as low as €9 when booking in advance), but the fastest bus trip takes 3:50 vs. just 1:20 on Thalys trains. The train is definitely fastest even though the station is less convenient to the sites you mentioned. If the much longer travel time is worth savings and ...

I found the 79A Bus, if someone other needs any information about the same situation, you can look to the 79A Bus, for more information look here: http://oasth.gr/#en/routeinfo/list/575/78/69/

Nothing is going to beat Thalys time-wise and Paris-Nord isn't too far away from the center as far as long-distance “departure points” (whether airports, train stations or bus terminals) go. You simply need to combine Thalys with a subway, RER or taxi ride from wherever you find yourself. Even if you could find a bus starting closer to your actual point of ...

Yes. You can take the Fremont–Daly City line from the Montgomery Street Station to the Oakland Coliseum Station. From the Oakland Coliseum Station you can take the Coliseum-Oakland Airport line to the airport. BART map:

JoErNanO's answer should be seen as a canonical reference point for obtaining hard-copy rail/tube maps.

The National Rail website has a page on transport maps. It states that foldable paper versions of the London Rails and Tube service map can be found in staffed National Rail stations in London. Quoting from the site (emphasis mine): London's Rail & Tube services map by TfL/ATOC London's Rail & Tube services map (which replaces the former ...
