In addition for Australia: Western Australia Transperth quite competently covers most of the state for bus, rail and water public transport. http://www.transperth.wa.gov Victoria Public Transport Victoria- never used it but should cover Victoria http://ptv.vic.gov.au Queensland Translink- had to tell the coverage but at least covers the major ...

On the Schedules page, you can download PDFs of the schedules for specific routes. If you open the one for Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa, you can see all of the stations on that route: Toronto Guildwood -Oshawa Port Hope Cobourg Trenton Jct. Belleville Napanee Kingston Gananoque Brockville Smiths Falls Fallowfield Ottawa You could then use the ...

Not a map as such, but Wikipedia has a list of ViaRail routes. Then when you click one of the routes, for example - the Ocean route, you can see on the right a list of every single town stopped at along the route. On the Corridor routes it actually has a 'map' (diagram) of the stations along this route including between Toronto and Ottawa. Remember, if ...

This travelcard is valid for all trams and buses (including the night buses) in Budapest and some close suburbs (including the airport), on the HÉV suburban lines within the city limits (a separate suburban network that's pretty much like the metro), as well as on the BKK ferry. It isn't valid on the main suburban trains (not operated by BKK) nor on the ...

The transfer ticket is basically two single tickets rolled in one, sold cheaper but with the restriction that the second trip must take place within 1½ hours. If you need to take a bus, then the metro, then a tram, that's a total of three tickets, which you can decompose as one transfer ticket (HUF 530) plus one single ticket (HUF 350, or HUF 300 if bought ...

Is an Oyster card the most cost-effective way, or buying paper tickets? Yes, it's worth it, in strictly financial terms. You always (or very nearly always anyway) get a (slightly) cheaper ticket price with the Oyster card than you do with paper tickets, and when your journey is over, you can turn in your Oyster card and receive a cash rebate for any ...

If you totally want to maximise your budget then then the absolutely cheapest way is to walk. Heathrow to Balham, for example, is 15 miles - google maps says a bit under 5 hours, obviously it depends how fast you walk. Balham to Westminster is much shorter, of course. The advantage (apart from it being free) would be that you'd get a real feeling for the ...

After hunting around on the BKK english language website, I've found the answer. There's a handy bi-lingual PDF of the bus times and connections from the airport available on their site, if you dig down enough In summary: From 3:30am until 11pm, there's a 200E bus every 7-8 minutes, which will connect you with Metro line 3 Between 11pm and just after ...

If you really, really want to save every pound, then if you get an Oystercard (or have a contactless debit or credit card) and use only buses to get from Heathrow to Balham (you can do it in three bus journeys, taking a bit over two hours in total) you will be charged £4.40, the daily cap on bus fares. In general, if you want the cheapest way to get around ...

To get from Heathrow to Belham, you can take the bus to Victoria Station for £5.70 cash. Comparatively, you can take the train from Heathrow to Paddington for £21.00. People wanting to save time will take the train, which is about 15 - 20 minutes; the bus takes a lot longer. It's a close call between the two because you'll be fatigued and lagged after a ...

Taxi would be more than EUR 150-200 (one way) I think. This website suggests it could be up to EUR 260. Public transportations are good in the Netherlands but the park is out of town and 2 hours is long. Maybe taking a cab to the station on both ends (Amsterdam and 's-Hertogenbosch) and a train in-between could cut the time and be a good compromise. Renting ...

One by one: Yes, Indonesian ferries are that bad. Overcrowding is rife, safety precautions are often non-existent, and the open sea can often be rough. As a simple example, Jakarta Globe's category "Indonesia boat accident" has at least 7 separate sinkings that killed people for 2014 alone, and see the links in this answer for some stories of a typical ...

Note - as Vince importantly pointed out, Les Arcs (gare == bourg-st-maurice) is perhaps the French ski station which is best-served by train! For the record, I just clicked here http://www.voyages-sncf.com and entered "Bruxelles" "Bourg Saint Maurice" There are a number of connections of about 7-8 hours, generally via Lyon. Or you could fly to Chambery ...
