This is actually something interesting to see... I was afraid everybody were having the same big train cards. Though they are big, they do have a lot of information on them, information that can be very handy sometimes

I meant 35 km in a way a pigeon would fly. Driving there by car is about 45 km. Check again.

DSB- the Danish State Railways



All domestic tickets are in this form, although there are also klippekorte or multi-ride clip cards that look a little different. International tickets are larger like airplane tickets.

travelling times in belgium

Actually, the shortest border to border train ride in belgium(antwerp-lille) would take you at least 1h40m, and the longest border to border line(ostend-arlon) takes more than 4hours.

In the UK, a Young Persons Rail Card (16-25 or full time student) gives a one third discount on most fares and costs £20, you can get some good cheap deals on UK rail (eg £16.50 return London-Manchester - 580km round trip) or you can pay a fortune (£340 London-Manchester first class flexible ticket without railcard) if you don't know how to get the cheap tickets.

I have never used a regular train ticket in Germany as all I need to travel around Trier is my student's id-card. Bus and train use in a certain radius is incuded.

Massachusetts (MBTA) commuter rail tickets, smallest Ive ever seen.

Theyre being phased out for credit card, machine issued paper tickets and smart cards.

I wish I had a better picture. I know I do, but I dont remember where it is...

Funnily enough Tony Blair had quite the reputation of taking the train in Britain. The Mayor of London Ken Livingstone takes the tube to work every morning too!

Though I really can't see George Bush boarding an Amtrak train.

New train-card in Holland

Within couple of years this plastic chipcard wil replace al the other transportation tickets in Holland. In comparison with other countries with cards, not only you can to travel on one card with the train, but also bus, tram, metro and boats. So you can travel with different transportation from north Holland to south Holland only using one chipcard. You must upload your card in advance, when you checkout a bus or trainplatform, the system will automaticly transfer your saldo from your chipcard. It's a Dutch prestigeproject, and there still al lot of software problems. So at this moment only the city of Rotterdam uses this system before it's going national.





Customize your card


Chipcard for commuters. (and students.(students don't have to pay for public transportation))
