Making driving more pleasant
{summary}

Around here (English midlands) the signal for ‘whoops, I drove like a dick then; but that is not the normal course of affairs for me and normal service should be resumed soon’ is raising a hand

I congratulate you for this blog, and continue giving us nice and importan info about transport.

Advice to the new Secretary of State for Transport
{summary}

“That is not necessarily what politicians want.  What politicians want is to keep their jobs, be popular and climb the greasy pole”

In some cases politicians do not just want to keep their jobs and be popular.. I think that globally speaking, in most cases they support political views and actions not defined by themselves but by hidden dominant forces. Also corruption is an overgrowing problem in terms of politics.




Advice to the new Secretary of State for Transport
{summary}

There are private libertarian railways being proposed, such as the Windsor Link Railway.  The test of whether Justine Greening is there just for herself or whether she really cares about the rest of us will be if schemes such as these get a fair hearing against the DfT’s own babies.




Tariffs and Transport
{summary}

I have used Kansai Thru Pass(關西一卡通)twice and never use Kintetsu Rail Pass.  Kansi Thru Pass is not cheap and you can’t save much from using it.  On my experience, you can at most save 2,000 yen from the 5,000 yen 3-days pass.  However, it is very convenient and a must have for Kansai trip.  With it, you can jump in almost all train (you may need to buy extra ticket for some limited express train) and bus (except the city bus in Nara).  You don’t need to spend time to stand before the complicated price chart in the station to find out which ticket to be brought.  It is much better than Kintetsu Rail Pass and JR Pass, if you want to spend 1 or 2 day(s) in Kyoto.  Because you can use all train, subway and buses in Kyoto.  Kyoto is not a big city but if you want to visit most spots by walking, you will be exhausted before 3:00pm.With Kansai Thru Pass, you can use Osaka as you base and visit Kobe, Kyoto and Nara.  If you have time, you can even go to 和歌山,高野山,姬路,淡路島 without additional transport charge.




A generic piece on fare increases
{summary}

Here in Australia, people are beginning to realized the need for public transport. I have never been to England but i learnt the transport system there is perfect. How true is that?




A generic piece on fare increases
{summary}

I agree wholeheartedly. I think though that most people tend not to trust market forces; nor do they particularly want to face price rises as you suggest in the short term. I always think that it is particularly absurd that you can fly cheaper to London from most mainland European cities than it costs to get the train in from the airport to central London.




Good riddance to Cuba's old cars
{summary}

These classic cars in the great setting of Cuba will make a big change when you take them away. It will be a sad scene in the place. But is it a good riddance?




A generic piece on fare increases
{summary}

With the vast increase of expenses and demand for fuel and manpower, it’s not surprising that fares increase regularly. This is expected in the next years to come.
