comment Why is Uber in Rome more expensive than a regular taxi?
(throwaway) Uber prices vary with expected demand; I wonder if R2R knows about this! what does the same route look like at a different time of day?

comment How to get from Gatwick airport to Paddington?
I'd be wary of making any kind of statement about Crossrail fares and ticketing until such time as a normal member of the public actually travels for the first time...

comment Is riding a bicycle in the parks of Glasgow allowed?
@JoeBlow in common usage as might reasonably be understood by a reasonable person. You'll notice that the relevant laws (Scotland, s.129) a) don't say pavement but also b) don't actually define the terms they use. The law isn't a formal grammar.

comment Converting US Dollars to Euros in the UK without getting screwed with two transaction fees?
15-20% of what?! As of right now, the midmarket GBP => EUR rate is 1.25 (courtesy XE); I can walk down the road to Thomas Exchange Global and get 1 GBP => 1.2325 EUR. I don't see anything being 15-20% of anything there...

comment How can I work out the price of a UK bus fare online?

comment Why is it considered so dangerous to travel in South Africa?
Those statistics don't show who the vicitims are. Somewhere where gang members kill each other but no one else will be perfectly safe for travellers, no matter how high the homicide count. Somewhere where the locals target only travellers will be extremely dangerous, no matter how low the count.
