  • Subway

    New York City Transportation

    While New York is surprisingly walkable for a big city, you'll usually find the subway is faster. Before you start off, your best bet is to go to a subway station booth and ask for a subway map. It is an extensive listing of the entire subway system, including a list of which trains stop at which stations (bold means the line stops there all the...

  • Bus / Shuttles

    Las Vegas Transportation

    The shuttle from the airport to the Strip is the most economic way to get to your hotel. It only costs $7 one way or $13 round trip. Or the Super Shuttle which is $8 to the strip.

  • Streetcar

    New Orleans Transportation

    The streetcar is a great way to get around, and the day pass is a very good deal. A single trip costs $1.25, + 25¢ for a transfer, but you can buy an all-day pass for $3.00. However, if you are a senior, paying per ride is probably cheapest—it is only 40¢ per trip, with free transfers. (You need to show a Medicare card or other ID as proof of...

    San Francisco Transportation

    I'd been told that SF's cablecars were usually crowded and thus difficult to get on. I was expecting that to be the case, especially as i visited in July (plenty of visitors). But I observed how they worked on my first day (my hotel was near Powell Street) and on my second day I rode the whole length of all three lines, and several shorter lengths...

    Montreal Transportation

    The metro here is great. Easy to use, one price (Canadian $2.75) for one travel. Buy an Opus Card for 20 passes for Canadian $20.00 but Opus cards cannot be shared (we were told). The metro is conveniently located at many of the main tourist sights like the Biodome. And if it isn't, taking a taxi is actually not too expensive either.

    Puerto Vallarta Transportation

    It sounds like the City of Puerto Vallarta designed their public transportation stopping stations so as to unclog traffic and it's design is working. However, this system is costing the public a lot of money! Instead of just paying one fare, they pay two fares even if the same bus is going to the same direction! For example, the blue bus and white...

    We thought it would be a breeze walking from the station to our lovely lodgings: a quick, close 8-10 minute walk, or so it appeared by Google map.
