Welcome to dodel's life

此次旅行主要交通工具選擇了巴士,包括灰狗巴士跟megabus。而且我發現提前半個月或一個月前訂票,價格會便宜很多。像我買灰狗是半個月以前,就買到大約半價,另外也有聽說可以買到1元的megabus。

This Trip I choose buses as my major trasportation, including greyhound and megabus. I found if you book before 14 days or 1 month, you would have discount. For example, I bought greyhound ticket 14 days ago, the price was $45 instead of $90. Some people said you can buy $ 1 at megabus if you are lucky. 

The price is:價格如下

Toronto=>NYC GreyHound  $45+Tax 14hrs

NYC=>Washington DC Megabus $35 4.5hrs

Washington DC=>NYC Megabus $30 5hrs

NYC=>Boston  Megabus $30 6hrs

Boston=> Toronto Porter airplane  $185 1.6hrs

基本上,這些票卷都是在網路上買的,而且用信用卡付款。(幸好我有帶卡,而且自動轉帳...剛剛看帳單也是刷了一萬阿:(哭)

However, these tickets are paid by credit card on internet.

灰狗巴士的票需要印出來,也可以去票口取票,雖然上面有印座位但不代表你一定有位置。本小姐的經驗就是,太晚排可能沒位置就得等下一班,我就這樣等了兩小時,還搭了14小時的車,原本那般是快車只要10小時就可以到了~大哭~

灰狗票

 

Mega巴士則比較方便,只要在網上訂好票就會有序號,給巴士人員看序號就可以上車了,沒劃位的所以先到先選位。

兩者都有免費無線網路,但灰狗訊號好些,有插座跟廁所。

不過比較起來,我比較喜歡megabus,因為座位空間大多了,我搭灰狗都一直頂到膝蓋超痛。但mega就不會,而且頗準時。

 

GreyHound need to print the ticket, although he would give you seat on the ticket, it doesn't guarantee you can have seat. So you must wait in line early, otherwise you could have no seat and wait for next bus.

Megabus is more convenient, because you can book on line and it would send you a code(number), all you need to do is show the number to staff and you can get in the bus.

Both of them have free wifi, plug and washroom. You won't bored when you are in the bus.

To be honest, I like megabus more than greyhound because the seat interval is bigger, and it is on time.

 

最後選擇飛機是因為從波士頓要搭18小時的車才會回到多倫多,他都得繞去紐約,而且價格還不是便宜喔!看到都超過100美元。算算要浪費時間跟體力,還不如多花一點錢去舒適搭飛機,不過是小飛機,小而快!

The last trasportation I choose airplane due to the bus would take more than 18 hrs and the price is higher than $100. Cosidering it would waste me more time and energy, I choose the plane, which is more like jet, small and quick!

手機上訂飛機票。

CI後拿到機票。

快到多倫多了XD。

到了還要搭渡輪才到Downtown。

 

而在城市內移動,幾乎就選擇地鐵了。不同地方的地鐵名稱跟符號都不同,要認一下。可以下載app真的很方便很有用,連最難最複雜的紐約地鐵都不會難倒你。

When I was travel in the city, I always take subways.

You can download app which includes map and caculates the routing for you. It's very useful, even the most complicated NYC subway would be a piece of cake.

Washington metro

Boston TMap

 

關於費用....

 

The fare of NYC metro is $2.4/time, I bought 7 days for $30. 

紐約地鐵卡 NYC metrocard

 

Washington DC metro has different way to caculate, the distance is relative to the price. One day pass for $14.

You can't eat and drink on the metro just like Taiwan.

地鐵很乾淨舒適

車箱內

華盛頓地鐵很乾淨,不能吃喝東西,標誌是大大的M。

 

Boston is $2.5/time. charliecard is $2/time

波士頓票卡

All tickets need to add $1 for paper.所有紙卡都需加1元手續費,超不環保。

The new car would have the stop name in the board. Other car you need to pay attention to anouncement.

只有新車才有站名在上面,其他車就得仔細聽站務人員廣播了。

 

That's all.

以上就先介紹到這裡啦!
