The city center is indeed near Amsterdam Centraal. There are multiple trains going there from the airport. It is about a 15 minute train ride. The right platform is signed quite clearly. Be careful to not take the train to Amsterdam RAI or Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA, these are not the town center. To go from Amsterdam to Leiden, you can take two different ...

From Schiphol airport, you can take a train to Amsterdam Centraal. From there you can also get a direct connection to Leiden Centraal. You can use the Nationale Spoorwegen (National Railways) website to plan your trip accordingly. They offer an English version of the site. If you are also looking for additional public transportation time tables, for ...

I can't find you a bus, but there are other options, according to rome2rio: Train, US$24-33 - will take just under 4 hours Taxi - around 2 hours, US$75-95 (having just been in India, this seems outrageous, I'm sure on the ground you could find it for a fraction of the price Drive - ah, perhaps this is the regular driver option, for US$15-23. On the ...

As someone who regularly visited that route (Ahmedabad to Thane), I advise you take an overnight train (preferably Gujarat Mail) or ADI-BCT superfast. Choose the one that has a halt at Borivali (Duranto doesn't; it has only one stop: Mumbai Central). For morning, double-decker is a good option. This is because Thane is located to the east of Mumbai and ...

As a Washingtonian, I don't think the traffic would be the problem, but parking might, not only in the city, but at those Metro stations that offer commuter parking. As you'll be about 125 miles from the city, you might consider driving to Tyson Corner, a massive shopping area with huge parking lots, and taking the Silver Line Metro from there (1943 Chain ...

This site (rfi.it) gives arrivals and departures in a form similar to what I think you are expecting. Sample output for Roma Termini: There's also a list of regional timetables in PDF format here: http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom/Informazioni/Orari-regionali-in-versione-pdf e.g.

You can do this through the Czech IDOS website. Simply enter the name of the station in the From field, after switching the language in the bottom-right corner. Optionally choose the date and click on SEARCH. You'll get the full list of trains departing from each of Rome's train stations: Clicking on an individual train will show you it's full schedule:...

I had a good look on the Trenitalia site, both in the English version and in the google translate version of the original to my own language, (Dutch) and did not find any links or other indications of 'per station' listings. But I did find this page, which promises times per line rather than per station. If like me you do not read Italian, you will need a ...

According to Rome2Rio: A faster alternative is to fly to Mumbai and take a local train there.

If convenience of journey is more important than time taken, you can get from Paddington to Stoke by train with one or two changes. One at Reading, and possibly one at Birmingham. There should also be step-free access between platforms at both stations. Depending on timetable, it could take as little as half an hour longer, or possibly up to about 1.5 ...

I did a similar transfer last fall, with a 4 year old and 2.5 year old. It's entirely possible, if you are careful about how you navigate the station to avoid steps. Highly recommend the step free tube guide for that - we got caught once with steps when we didn't, and we won't do that again! Black cabs are perfectly usable with kids. They don't ...

Besides the antique cable cars, which are a protected National Monument, San Francisco runs historic streetcars on a daily basis. ("F" line.) Most are the PCC streetcars from the 1940s and 50s. Some are Peter Witt streetcars originally from Milan, which were built in 1928. There is one from Melbourne, Australia built in 1929.

Terminal 1 (Irish Ferries & Isle of Man Steam Packet Company) is the furthest out. I’ve walked it from Dublin City Centre, and it is possible, but it’s not a pleasant walk, nor a short one. Confusingly, Terminal 1 is also called “Dublin Ferryport”. It appears under this name on the Dublin Bus timetable and in rail timetables which include ferry services. ...

They are DMU's with two axles used only by CFR (national rail company), built from 1935 to 1950, first refurbished in the 60s changed their motor from a Ganz of 130 hp to a Raba-Man of 180 hp, at the second main refurbishment from 2008 some of them got a new motor a Volvo Penta 226 hp, and a new paint scheme.

(If cost is not an issue) You can get a pre-booked taxi/private hire to take you from Heathrow, straight to Stoke-on-Trent. As mentioned in comments your best bet is to book a firm/individual who resides in Stoke as this will be cheaper (you may need to pay a deposit or even the whole amount up front) Do not just jump in a black cab outside Heathrow and ask ...

Can you fly to Birmingham instead of London? There is a direct train service (hourly) from Birmingham International to Stoke-on-Trent, 75 minute journey. That train will be considerably cheaper than Heathrow express plus a train from Euston. Just make sure you don't make the mistake that wasd recently reported and confuse Birmingham Alabama with Birmingham ...

Some parts of the GR10 are indeed reachable by public transport usually involving a combination of train and bus. The railway network takes you to the larger cities which are found at the lowest altitudes near the GR10. From these you'll need a bus/coach to reach higher altitudes. In addition, the bus might drop you several km away from the marked trail so ...

There is a direct number 205 bus from Paddington to Euston. Ordinarily it goes down the side of Paddington (platform 1 side) and then along the front of the station. It calls into the bus station that's adjacent to the concourse at Euston. It takes 22 minutes for the journey, and buses are every 6-10 mins during the day, less frequent early and late. The ...

I'm a Londoner with kids of a similar age. Info you might find useful: I've never seen a black cab with a child seat - I suspect there are none. Two of the standard seats face backwards though so slightly safer. If you are going to use the Heathrow Express then taxi is the easiest option from Paddington. Uber is cheaper but still no child seats (and no ...

I would be inclined to take the tube to Euston Square - it hasn't been mentioned yet, but it is possible to exit Euston Square station on the north side and take the short walk to Euston station without crossing any roads (indeed, you can use the station as an underpass if you need to cross the road). There are a couple of short flights of stairs involved (...

As you are aiming to get to Stoke-on-Trent, you can take a bus from Heathrow to Watford Junction, then take the train. The train may be cheaper and you avoid the center of London. Or take the Tube directly from Heathrow to Euston, as you are getting on at the end of the line you should get a seat.

If your purpose is to get from Heathrow Airport to Stoke-on-Trent with as little hassle as possible, I would consider flying to Manchester and then take the direct bus from Manchester Airport to Stoke-on-Trent. British Airways operates about 8 flights a day from Heathrow to Manchester and there are seven daily buses from Manchester Airport to Stoke-on-...

Having traveled from Heathrow towards London by tube many times, my first reaction was: Why to travel by train as well as tube. Starting at the airport you will be one of the first in the tube and you will have an easy time to find seats. Look on the transport for London site for the best travel options on the day and time you need to travel, set it to '...

It's possible, but you're not going to have a lot of time if you only have 6 hours to do it in, and I would not attempt this if you have a lot of bags to drag around. Narita to Shibuya is about 80 minutes by Narita Express, although beware that not all N'EX trains stop at Shibuya, meaning you may have a wait of up to 30 minutes. There are other options (...

According to Google Maps the P1 line passes through that stop. You can see if you select the public transport option, it lists many more stops. I regularly use Google Maps to take public transports in Italy so I'm pretty confident that it's correct, and in fact you can see a reference to sienamobilità. In any case you should probably ask for confirmation to ...

They’re not exactly the oldest and they are not a subway but an S-train, but they still fulfil the remaining requirements somewhat, especially since they use third rail electrification: The S-Bahn in Berlin still has four historic EMUs that will operate for touristic reasons. Two are class ET 165 as seen in the image (taken from Wikipedia). They were ...

In Romania, Malaxa railbus class 77, built in the 30s, runs on different routes, with a low number of passagers.

Another reason, beyond the excellent ones already discussed here, is that public transit is typically subsidized by government, often both by direct annual contributions to the transit agency's budget, and by issuing debt for capital expenses that is slowly paid off by some combination of the agency and the government. For operating expenses (not counting ...

With SFO and BART, there is a significant surcharge for using the airport station; it is cheaper to travel further down the line. (From the station I use, the fare is now about $9.00; from downtown San Francisco it is less.) Some reasons: the station had to be retrofit into the airport. And the airport wants the money, because it turns out they make more ...

try this site - http://www.cleartrip.com/tourism/routes/dd/munger-to-deoghar-route.html the distance between two places is 140 km. you should be able to hire a car (with driver) and should not cost you more than 7-8 Rs per km.

In case you are reading this in 2020, just take the hyperloop :) One of the companies vying to make Elon Musk's transportation dream a reality has signed a deal with the government of Slovakia to explore building a three-country Hyperloop.

There are two companies running a direct bus connection between the airports. Flixbus. Their bus #910 runs once per hour and takes 60 minutes. A single ticket costs 5EUR (or 7.5EUR, depending on the time), pre-bookable on their website. Postbus. Their bus #1195 runs once every two hours and takes 75 minutes. A single ticket costs 8EUR, with no reservations ...

I've seen this on the Polar Bear Express between Cochrane and Moosonee, Ontario, though that is an Ontario Northland train rather than Via. Virtually all the "stations" between those two are flag stops that seem to exist solely for ticket pricing purposes, the few people not travelling the whole distance got off elsewhere.


4

For what it's worth, this is only really available on the Sudbury-White River (formerly Lake Superior) route on Via. Having used this to traverse the north quite often when I was younger, it was not unusual to see people alight from various locations that weren't stations - including with quads or watercraft. (Usually canoes). This is indeed a thing, and ...

A good way for those that really want to see the dike is to take the bus and get off at the monument stop to catch the next service an hour later (till 8 PM now, check when you plan your journey.) Alternatively, travel to either end and walk onto the dike. You could rent a bicycle to ride onto the dike for a short distance, (see below)¹. The bike lane is ...

OK, this is genuinely hard. I gave up and rang TFL, and was on the phone to them for half an hour, during which time I was assured that "non-Gatwick-Express services GTW-VIC don't count towards the cap". I drew their attention to this page, which says Journeys on Gatwick Express do not count towards caps, but those on Thameslink and Southern services ...

You can use an Oyster or Contactless payment card for Gatwick->Victoria travel however if you use the Gatwick Express this not included in price capping or the Travelcard zone. However it doesn't mention if going via any of the other operators whether it does, although this site says this:- By using Oyster on Thameslink and Southern Trains services to/...

I've found an extra way to reach this exactly address. The Courtyard (hotel) Shuttle can be booked even if I'm not sleeping there, the cost is 5.50EUR and it's from Schipol Airport directly to Courtyard Hotel that is almost inside the Papa's Beach House (IJweg 961, 2131 LV Hoofddorp)

Not yet. The City has put out for bid a 700 bike system with initial plans to open next year (2017). There are, of course, bike rental options available in the meantime.

Current price in JPY is ¥29110 for a standard 7-day pass. Anyway it is cheaper than 2 individual long-distance shinkansen trips.

Bus line 300 will take you there. One-way fare is E2.40 but you'll need an "OV Chipkaart" for each member of your group (normal cards are E7.50, there are disposable cards that may be cheaper but I haven't found their price online. Or you can buy a one-day card for E7.50.


5

You can load the card both in the subway machines, but also in the train machines on Lisbon and surrounding (Estoril Line, Sintra Line and Azambuja Line) present in all stations This already gives a considerable number of spots. Considering you were in Pedrouços, and since there is no longer a train station there. your best bets would be either Algés or ...

For Israel public transit, http://www.bus.co.il/ is invaluable. I found Google Maps unusable in Israel without knowing Hebrew.

UK answer. Recently refurbished long distance trains tend to have sockets in the seating areas for the passengers touse, these are usually these are often labelled something like "laptops and mobile phones only" reflecting their intended use. Local trains and older trains are less likely to have them. There is no charge for using them. The sockets are ...

Generally, new and longer-distance trains will, older suburban ones won't. Quite a few have them in first class, but not in standard. CrossCountry Voyager trains have power available in most seats, and a nice seating plan: Seating Plan East Midland have power on their 'Meridian' trains but not their HSTs - link South West Trains don't generally - it ...

A large suitcase is usually acceptable. (Although at times - there may simply be no space) There should be no real problems in terms of your bag being allowed, but it is recommended you do not take luggage. There are endless stories of pickpockets, stealing etc, so bear in mind that any luggage you take is at your own risk. For a safer option, I would ...

The quickest way seems to be : From the airport, take RER B, get off at the "Châtelet-Les Halles" station From Châtelet-Les Halles, take the subway 7 going to "Mairie d'Ivry" and get off at "Pierre et Marie Curie" It should take about 1h15, price should be in the vicinity of 15€ (need confirmation). Be aware that Châtelet-Les Halles is a pretty big ...

This isn't strictly a new answer (yet), but presents a dataset of antipodal airports someone might use to find a better route. Read on for the most antipodal airports and a shocking reveal about the Santiago-Xi'an route. Continuing this exploration, I turn to the work of an a3nm, who previously engaged in some airport antipode-related tomfoolery. Using his ...

If you're going on a weekday (Monday through Friday and not a holiday), you could take the Bustang North Line commuter bus service. See my answer on Getting from Denver Amtrak to Fort Collins for details. For instance, there is a bus leaving downtown Fort Collins at 5:40 AM and arriving at Union Station at 7:05 AM. You can also catch it at I-25 and ...

The Paris transport operator, RATP has a journey planner on their website. You can input your start point, end point, and start time, and it will suggest routes to you. If you don't want to worry about the bus, you can restrict it to rail (so Train, RER and Metro) only. Make sure you search for Aeroport or similar as your start point however, as France is ...
