The weekly public transport pass in Rome (in Italian CIS = Carta Integrata Settimanale) is valid within the area called "Roma Capitale". You can buy it for € 24,00 at any automatic vending machine located in every metro station or at almost any newsagent in Rome. With the weekly pass you can ride all the buses, trams, metros and trains within the validity ...

Japan (lived here 12 years) has a corporate-cultural belief that you must do as much as possible, all the time. So the screen (or light) above the door says it will open, the screen above the opposite door says it will not, and the prerecorded announcement says, in very clear Japanese, wether the left or right side door will open. This will often be followed ...

At this time the only way to check your MetroCard balance is by using a machine in a subway station. This is because while MetroCard does have a central database of all transactions, it is not accessible in real time, and the balance (or unlimited ride expiration) is encoded directly on the card's magnetic stripe each time you swipe it at a turnstile or ...

I think it is semi-random, but mostly a function of the year the system was engineered or retrofitted. Newer systems have more of an I.T. backbone to feed the components. Old systems (NYC?) could not have had it in 1880, and monopoly operation of these systems don't generate much incentive for user friendliness. Portland's (Oregon) Max light rail trains ...

Depending on your plans in Brussels, Villo might be suitable for you as well. It is a public bicycle system, similar to Velib in Paris, where all over Brussels bicycles are available for you to use. The idea is simple once subscribed you can take bicycle in one of the racks and cycle around for free initially. After 30 minutes of cycling, you'll need to pay ...

Albeit obscure, this was the only information I was able to find on your issue, Manali-Kaza: When this 210 km route is open, there are two daily ordinary buses leaving from Manali Bus Stand to Kaza at 5.00 AM and 5.30 AM. These buses are run by Himachal Roadways and fare is approximately INR 200. The bus passes through Rohtang Pass, Batal, Kunzum Pass, ...

It's typical, but it's not a country-wide standard or anything: the reason is that Japanese put a lot of money and effort into train research, and the latest model trains on major lines are pretty snazzy. For example, the current JR Yamanote Line trains (E231-500) have displays that show the next station, its transfers, stairs and escalators in relation to ...

STIB/MIVB, the Brussels public transportation company only operates in and very close to Brussels. The best thing to do Transportation from Charleroi Airport to Brussels: Brussels City Shuttle. Book it now. Price for one way is 5 euro (when bought very early), 10 euro (when not bought very early), 14 euro (when bought only a few days beforehand) or 17 euro ...

I did some more searching myself. The campground near Murodo seems like a excellent spot for someone like me to make day trips from, thanks for the info Manmaru! I've also found some regular campgrounds a bit more to the east around lake Aokiko and Nakatsunako, a few are visible on google maps around the two lakes here: ...

Here you can find the schedule from Reykjavik Excursions and as you can see during summer time they operate till 22.00 indeed. If you want to be sure, just arrange it with the bus driver on your way to Blue Lagoon from Reykjavik. Happy visit to Iceland! :)

You can find the information on the website of the regional transport association HVV. A ticket for the Großraum (the blue area in the map below) costs 982,80€ for a year, to travel around in the whole HVV area you need to pay 1965,60€ a year. Download map as PDF

Tateyama is probably the easiest mountain to reach in the Japan Northern Alps by public transportation thanks to Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route which connects the east and west bases of the mountain (in Nagano Prefecture and Toyama Prefecture) by a series of public transportation lines, so that would be my recommendation. As for a campground, there is one ...

According to both the bus schedule for line 21 on the regional bus authority (LER)'s website, and to the Castellane tourism office website, the bus leaves from the gare routière (bus station). There is an information desk on Avenue des Diables Bleus (gare routière de Saint-Jean d'Angély) [Google Maps]. This is also the address given by LER. It is located ...

Maybe you want to give this one a try: http://www.easyridepanama.com/ I once tried a similar service in Panama. It is not the cheapest but works usually. I can't say much more, really. Just use you mouse and click the link!

Hokkaido is great, although transportation there is far from perfect. While relying on public transport only the easiest places to visit would be Sapporo, hot springs around there and Hakodate. Taisetsuzan is amazing place itself but there's nothing to do without a car, unfortunately. Of course, buses do run, but travelling from one place to another place ...

If you can lug your baggage to the Clinton stop of the Blue Line, that will be the easiest option for you. You arrive straight in the airport and can take the elevator right up to the Sky Train, which will take you to Terminal 5. The current Megabus stop is about a block and a half south of Union Station, which makes it even closer to the Clinton Blue Line ...

Somewhat counterintuitive (ie heading off in almost the opposite direction) but Watford to Baker Street by Metropolitan Line is about £12.60 (standard single, may be less) and about 40 minutes. Baker Street to LTN by easyBus is from £2 and takes about 1 hour - so perhaps about 2 hours and £15 in total.

It does not cover all the regular busses in the country but postbus.at is the main operator and does operate busses you could use. Unfortunately, it's not a part of the national train company (ÖBB) and the website therefore also includes trains, which is why busses do not show up in the search results for this particular journey… rome2rio is another site ...
