    Most circuitous bus route

    I've come across some buses with unusual routes before, but was surprised just how many roads are served in Ilkley and Ben Rhydding by this school bus! It has just one journey each day and presumably covers multiple schools. Are there...

    Northern refusing to sell tickets in advance

    I seem to keep having problems buying Day Saver tickets from Northern. I often use them on a bus before the first train and it's only possible to buy them from staffed stations (or scratch off from half a dozen locations). I am repeatedly told that they're not allowed to sell them until 0915. I...

    East Coast engineering works Jan-Mar

    I've looked but can't see another thread on this. Am needing to travel between Yorkshire and Welwyn GC/London quite a lot this winter. I was shocked to see the advice for 3 of the first 10 weekends of the year was 'Do not travel'. I've booked for another and my journey time had increased by...

    Ticket Validity in Belgian Zones

    I'm just bought return tickets for tomorrow from Brussels Midi to Antwerp Centraal. They've been issued as from Brussels Zone to Answerp Zone.

    How old is a child on Arriva Wales Buses?

    Howdy. There's 13 of us on holiday in Wales. It's easy on the the Arriva website to find fares. It's a little trickier to find out what constitutes a family (up to 2 adults, 3 children). I can find no clues as to what age a child is. We've assorted children from 9 to 17 and we'd like to buy...

    About a week ago, I had a quick look at and looked up tickets from Leeds to Brussels. I'm now looking to book and the website no longer recognises "Leeds" as a valid entry. Anyone any idea why that's happening or suggestions as to where is best to book from Leeds or Keighley...

    Northern Autumn Adventures

    I keep seeing online adverts for Autumn Adventures with Northern Advance tickets. It's nice alliteration, but how long do they think Autumn is?

    Yesterday I purchased a Super Off Peak Ticket from London to Keighley. The LNER website was only offering this ticket on the daily direct service. However, having picked up the ticket, it has restriction 9D and no mention of operator restriction. Is it actually valid on any operator? If it...

    Hi, My wife had an advance ticket with a change at Peterborough. She caught a connecting train an hour earlier. She asked to upgrade to an Anytime ticket, but was told she'd have to pay the full fare for the journey (£135). Is this right?

    Adverts in Russian

    Am I the only one who's started getting Forum ads in Russian (but including being for things that are in the UK as well as some I can't work out at all)? I'm a little bemused. Are they aimed at certain areas of London, perhaps?
