public transport – Can bikes be carried on buses in Mallorca?

There are two main providers of public bus services on Mallorca

EMT who provide the city bus routes in Palma.

And, as the question poser highlights, TIB which is the authority that provides bus services across the island.

In the city ‘officially’ EMT will only allow buses on board if they are the folding type

However I have seen people on buses with a bike in the wheelchair space. I guess they would be asked to get off if a wheelchair user needed the spot.

Bus services provided by TIB are actually operated by a number of different companies under licence or contract. And as such means that the are a great number of different bus types. Most of which don’t have a dedicated bike rack or luggage space.

On longer routes such as the ones from Palma to the North and east of the island the service is operated by larger Coach / National Express / Greyhound Type vehicles which have a luggage boot/trunk underneath. I have seen bikes being placed in this space, but there is no means of securing the bikes, so there is a danger of them sliding around. The placing of any luggage / bikes in the storage space is at the discretion of the driver.

In short. City / local buses – officially- folding bikes only

Longer distance coaches. All depends on the vehicle and available space. No specific prohibition, but most definitely at your own risk. And no guarantee that a specific or suitable vehicle will be allocated to any particular service.

Mallorca is an amazing island to cycle, and whilst not in your question, it’s worth mentioning that many car rental services do have bike boxes to rent for an additional fee on top of the car rental price.

buses – How to get from Gdynia or Gdansk to Leba

I was expecting a train to go. But, no matter where I look there is no train connecting the two cities. Nor a bus.

I based my assumption on
which states there should be a train. Other sources also refer to trains.

I expected to find the connection on either
Both display ‘no route found’.

I checked Flixbus and Blablacar, both with no success.

I really want to go to Slowinski Park Narodowy over the weekend.
Does anyone know how I could get there – taxi would cost 75€ one-way, according to rome2rio.

buses – Greyhound bus ticket (print at home)

If it’s a suitcase, they may ask to check in (which goes in the check in bin in the belly of the bus). If it’s a back pack or something similar, you can carry it with you. As far as the ticket goes, you can print it from your home, print it out from a kiosk at the bus stand or use your smartphone to scan the e ticket and avoid any printing altogether.

buses – From Colombia to Ecuador by bus

This is quite a bump to an old thread, but it may serve someone.

There are buses leaving from Cali (they have to pass trhough Popayan, but I don’t think they stop there) to Quito and Lima. The company name is Ormeño.

From Popayan to Cali is a relatively short ride (2 hours in a bus), and you can contact Ormeño at Cali’s Terminal de Transportes. The contact information I could retrieve is this, I’m not sure if it’s accurate as of today:

Dirección: Terminal de Transportes de Cali, Calle 30N Av. 2A ­ 29, Local 200
Contacto: (2) ­6617083 / (2) 6687868 - / 314 633 2436

Please remember that Colombia’s country code is +57.

Pretty much all documentation on microservices I came across explain just one tiny part of some complex system. I am trying to understand big picture. So my question is: Has anyone expirienced in practice multi level AMQP Event Buses across solution when using microservices? Something like shown in the picture?
Possible architecture

Or is it better to have just one message broker to handle all PUB/SUB across entire solution?

buses – Old Turin bus fine never sent me the letter to pay

I am looking to try find out where and how I can pay a bus fine from a few years ago in Turin. They never sent me a letter in the post, but took my passport details for forgetting and not knowing to validate and stamp my bus ticket .
I am concerned that one day they will not let me back in the country .

Is there a way I can pay this? Or a website / contact to find an old penalty they never sent me the letter for?

Any help would be much appreciated


buses – Where to find the bus schedules for Charleroi airport to Charleroi train station?

The answer to about any “how do I get from here to there using public transport” question can be found on the Belgian Railway’s website.

The trip planner on that site can plan trips for you between any two points in the country. It understands addresses, station and bus stop names, and POI’s.

So you just enter “Charleroi Airport” in the “from” field, wherever you want to go to in Belgium (or Europe) in the “to” field. Add time and date, and presto, you’re set.

Such comprehensive public transport planners are actually rather common in Europe, but depending on where you come from you may indeed not be used to such planners being available, or indeed being comprehensive.

In the case of Belgium however the planner can be trusted. And it will reliably tell you how to get from Charleroir Airport to Liège.

Thailand – Night buses from Bangkok to Hua Hin

I just want to take the bus from Bangkok to Hua Hin and reduce the likelihood of traffic jams as much as possible, so I want a night bus.

From a search query Night bus to Hua Hin I found data that I thought might be out of date or unclear when night buses came from Bangkok Eastern Bus Terminal (Ekkamai) to Hua Hin are available and how much time the arrival should take (3 hours, 4 hours, 5 hours).

By "night bus" I mean a direct bus (no stops) that is extremely unlikely to be stuck in a traffic jam because it is leaving at:

24:00 or 24:30
01:00 or 01:30
02:00 or 02:30
03:00 or 03:30

Are there such daily buses from Bangkok?
