Public transportation in YN

Postby Crysuko » Sun May 23, 2021 9:04 am

PT in Crysuko is massive, deep and sprawling, recieving a large amount of funding and support from local and upper government. There is an extensive fleet of trolleybuses which have piece by piece replaced the usual ones, and those who don't like overhead cables are simply told to lump it. The subway networks in major cities, especially the capital are a spiders web of sometimes overlapping tunnels in constant use. Crystin-Minokos never sleeps, and public transport and associated services run 24 hours a day. Supporting this in the cities are the circleways, a series of concentric ring roads, raised onto bridges in some places.

The rail network around the country is also well developed, connecting not only the major metropolitan areas but other towns and facilities along the routes. The primary criticism is road and rail routes cutting through the northern marshlands, and all one needs to access all of this is transport access card, which the government issues rather easily. Go to the right office, give them your ID card, sign some paperwork and you get your TA. whole process takes 10 minutes tops.

How does it work in your country?

Chiloshia has a good Public transit system, especially long-distance. Train networks connect basically any town of more than 2,000 people to the larger lines, which connect all major cities. Chiloshian trains aren't exactly cutting-edge high-speed rails, but they are world-class in passenger comfort and safety. Ferry systems also exist to bridge many coastal areas with bays and islands, and a few river networks. Unlike other Chiloshian Public Transport, these markets are private sector and competitive, but regulated and staffed with police.

Any city of 20,000 or more has at least a modest bus network, with larger cities tending towards the more robust, and the 5 largest cities all have metro systems of relatively high quality and directly accessible from their train stations and airports. Metros are also well-policed, if a bit crowded. These forms are typically operated by the locality government, with national funding injected.

Metro and Bus networks tend to have yearlong subscriptions that are cheaper than buying daily tickets for two months. Trains and ferries have monthly subscriptions that might get you 25-30% off the cost of paying daily for that time.

Chiloshian summers are too sunny for many rainbows to form.

Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit - Fedde Le Grand

Zhouran has a highly-comprehensive transportation infrastructure. In fact, Zhouran's highly-developed state-of-the-art infrastructure is described as bleeding-edge and globally unmatched. Zhouran has the highest density of transportation infrastructure in the world, including highest density of paved roads and electrified railway. For a massive archipelago nation with a massive land area (comparable to half the mainland US), Zhouran has the fourth largest road network (of which 99.4% are paved), the second largest highway network, the third largest conventional railway network (all of which are electrified), the largest metro railway network (and the only country that has a unified metro system), the largest high-speed railway network, and the largest high-speed maglev network. Thanks to its highly-developed infrastructure, Zhouranese people can travel easily across the entire nation without any difficulty whatsoever. Public transportation is highly-developed in the country and is also highly-affordable and cost-effective, thus allowing individuals in every town and city to easily travel and get to places quickly and without any hassle. This mindset of having a highly-developed infrastructure to allow people to easily travel dates all the way back to thousands of years since ancient times. The traditional Zhouranese system of roads known as Sangkehe were the first of its kind, appearing several millennia ago. As a result, the Zhouranese were the first civilization to utilize a comprehensive network of public roads. Thanks to the sangkehe, travelling become much easier especially for horses and horse-drawn carriages. And for the ancient militaries of Zhouran, the sangkehe also became an important tool of logistics for feeding and suppling troops during mobilization and war. The Zhouranese were also the first civilization to establish a comprehensive network of permanent bridges called the Sangkekun which allowed people to travel across any physical obstacle, such as a body of water, valley, or road, without closing the way underneath. Like the sangkehes, sangkekuns were introduced several millennia ago and given that the Zhouranese archipelago is rich in hilly forests, rocky mountains, and numerous rivers, sangkekuns allowed people to get to places quicker without taking any detour.

Unlike other nations, all rapid transit systems in Zhouran form a nationwide network called the National Metro Railway Network, which are found in various cities and towns nationwide. The NMRN's top ten largest and busiest metros are placed in the world's top twenty, with Ouyang Metro ranking 1st in Zhouran and 3rd overall internationally. Despite Zhouran currently having the 6th highest motor per capita in the world at around 792 motor vehicles per 1,000 people, public transport remains popular and commonly used across Zhouran, one of the reasons being the highly-affordable low-price fares while other factors include the country having very-high social safety nets and an extremely-low level of crime, as well as Zhouran being the second largest electricity-producing nation in the world, world's largest producer of commercial nuclear power and the largest producer of commercial wind power. Zhouran's numerous metros that form the National Metro Railway Network strongly contribute to environmentalism being highly-important due to Zhouranese cultural view on healthy symbiosis between man and nature, not to mention it creates strong competition between public transportation and privately-owned motor vehicles. Thanks to the introduction of the NMRN in the mid-to-late 1960s, people in different towns and cities can travel easily and quickly without needing to taking the bus or drive. Not only that, NMRN tickets are sold at very cheap prices, thus people can easily save money by taking the NMRN rather than pay for refuelling their vehicles.

Zhouran's National High-Speed Rail Network, since its introduction in the late 1960s to early 1970s, is the world's second high-speed railway system and has been the fastest and most busiest for several decades since its introduction. The NHSRN is the second most common form of transportation for city-to-city travel across the nation, with privately-owned cars being the most common. Regardless, the NHSRN has allowed people to easily travel across the nation without having to drive or buy expensive plane tickets. Ever since its opening in the early 1970s, it became the busiest HSR network in terms of highest annual passenger ridership from the 70s until 2011, after being placed second behind China's expanding HSR network. As a result, the NHSRN is currently second-place for annual passenger ridership. The service on the NHSRN operates much larger trains and at higher frequency than any other high speed lines in the world, meanwhile ticket costs for the network is known to be much cheaper than the ticket prices of HSR services in other countries. When the NHSRN first opened in the early 1970s, it already broke the world speed record for EMU trains due to the fact that National High-Speed Railway trains have operational speeds of 300-350 km/h. As a result, the NHSRN was an early pioneer in 300+ km/h high-speed rail service. While Provincial High-Speed Railway trains have operational speeds of 200-250 km/h, such speed is still higher than the top speeds of slower conventional trains. Compared with air transport, the NHSRN has several advantages, including scheduling frequency and flexibility, punctual operation, comfortable seats, and convenient ticket prices. NHSRN fares are quite competitive with domestic air fares in the country, with ticket prices for high-speed rail being much cheaper than the ticket prices for domestic air travel.

Zhouran's National Rapid Maglev Railway Network is the world's fastest operational high-speed maglev railway as well as the first commercially-successful maglev railway. Unlike the Shanghai Maglev Train, which is a rapid transit system serving within a city and operates at a slower speed, the NRMRN is an inter-city rail system like that of the slower more-conventional National Rail Network and National High-Speed Rail Network. Unlike the German Transrapid maglev design, which has lower speeds and uses electromagnetic suspension, the more-sophisticated design for NRMRN maglev trains use electrodynamic suspension while the trains operate at higher speeds than foreign designs. NRMRN maglev trains on the Provincial Rapid Maglev Railways operate at higher speeds than even NHSRN high-speed trains on National High-Speed Railways while on the other hand, maglev trains on the National Rapid Maglev Railways provide the world's fastest passenger rail service. The National Rapid Maglev Railway Network acts as a medium between the National High-Speed Rail Network and air transportation.

Buses are common in every town and city nationwide. While not as popular as the metros, buses are the cheapest form of public transportation in Zhouran. While most buses in Zhouran are powered by fossil-fuel, the country operates the largest number of electric buses. Apart from conventional buses, there are five cities with bus rapid transit systems, consisting of the Ouyang Bus Rapid Transit (Opened on March 18, 2003), Hexie Bus Rapid Transit (Opened on December 24, 2003), Tanzhou Bus Rapid Transit (Opened on February 12, 2004), Yanjing Bus Rapid Transit (Opened on June 5, 2004), and the Anjing Bus Rapid Transit (Opened on August 16, 2004).

Because towns and cities in Zhouran use the Zhouranese Cityscape/Townscape Model, cities in Zhouran are classed as smart cities. Thanks to this model, every town and city in Zhouran are not only pedestrian friendly but also vehicle friendly as well.

Internet and cellular access in Zhouran is readily available with connectivity and coverage being the most widepsread in the world. As a result anyone can still receive cellular services even in the remote wilderness while high-speed Internet connection is possible even in public thanks to complimentary public wi-fi in public areas such as libraries or shopping arcades as well as in public transportation such as public buses and National Metro Railway Network trains. Due to widespread usage, Internet and cellular broadband are considered to be standard utilities within the Zhouranese Cityscape/Townscape Model.

Zhouran is known for being a massive user of artificial intelligence to the point of being the leading nation in AI. Dumb AI is used in a variety of mostly-civilian roles such as managing the satellite-dish arrays of a radio-astronomy observatory, supervising a nuclear power plant, managing the railway-supervision and automated train signalling of a railway system such as the National High-Speed Rail Network and National Rapid Maglev Railway Network, and overseeing the entire infrastructure of a city. As a result, all of Zhouran transportation infrastructure is carefully and meticulously supervised and managed through the heavy usage of advanced digital technology.

Traffic lights in Zhouran have green, amber/yellow, and red lights as same with other countries. Older traffic lights of the 20th century use illuminating lamps while newer ones since the start of the 21st century use more-efficient LED arrays instead. Unlike in some countries, Zhouranese traffic lights utilize a combination of both coordinated control and adaptive control through the assistance of cameras and sensors controlled by central computer networks and monitored by traffic management centers while aided by intelligent transportation systems and most recently dumb AI computers, instead of using fixed time control as seen in foreign traffic lights. This is to ensure that traffic lights operate accordingly in real time with any changing traffic patterns and adapt to the dominant flows changing over the time of day.

Public Transport in Indian Empire is heavily used and common in big cities. Many of Indian Empire's large cities have underground metro systems which provide transport around the city. Widespread use of public transport in big cities tends to result in few cars, with most people either walking, riding a bicycle, or taking the city metro to various destinations. The city metro is a common option both for adults going to work and children going to school.

Outside of bigger cities, public transportation is rather undeveloped and are either served by highways or rather meager bus services. The usage of cars is much more common in these areas. However, this may be subject to change, as Indian Empire's incumbent political party, the Social Democrats, are proposing a national High Speed Rail system and are currently leading in the polls.

Most cities have bus systems, some have trams though only the capital has a metro, regional trains connect most decently sized cities, high-speed rail connects the 3 biggest cities.

What's unique about our system is how chaotic things can get. Unlike other countries that try to separate trams from road traffic whenever possible, the Sherechian trams almost always go with the traffic. The worst examples are 4-way intersections in Aruday where 2 large avenues, both with tram tracks meet. This is made even worse with no traffic lights or any form of signage. The national no speed limit rule also extends to the trams, so it's actually a common sight for trams to move in busy roads at over 60km/h.

The state owned rail company, Lyria, operates both regional and high speed maglev trains across most of Pulsroth under the Deltaline and Alphaline brands, with the exception of the far northwest, due to its very sparse population. A few smaller lines, mostly in the far north, are also run by private companies.

Public transport within the large cities mostly consists of metro systems, trams and commuter rail. Some of these, like those in Forsinard, are run entirely by local transit authorities. Others, such as in New Hereford, are operated by private companies, with a transit authority merely overseeing the operations.

Public transport is particularly popular in the Mortimer Bay Metropolis (New Hereford, Meridian & Mirramalling), with New Hereford's HMT subway system transporting around 2.3 million passengers on an average weekday, and the local commuter rail carrying around 380,000 per day.

Public transportation in New Jeromia consists of buses, trains, planes, boats, etc. which are largely owned by private companies, subsidized and contracted by national and local governments depending on the area served. The government owns and operates low cost options in some areas, with cheap rail, bus, boat and plane services with no amenities offered for those who cannot afford more expensive options. These services are usually operated at less busy hours.


Large bus networks exist in major cities which usually are used as a more local option after getting off of a train or plane. There are also rapid bus services in areas with no rail service and there are inter-city bus services serving cities and smaller towns which don't have any rail service. Tour buses are also used in some areas with little funding if any from the government.


New Jeromia is known for its frequent rail service serving all of its major cities and most of its smaller cities and towns. Being largely influenced by America and Japan, a large amount of the transit systems look like the ones in those countries, and a decent amount of rolling stock is imported from there. Trains fall under 6 categories:

    Government Funded Railroads: The government funds some of the larger railroads for cheaper transportation options. These railroads cannot have amenities such as classes or food, and are strictly for quick and easy transportation. A good example of one of these would be the Givozo Metro, which is a commuter-only subway/elevated rail line in Givozo. It should be noted that a lot of these railroads are city or county-owned.
    Class H Railroads: These railroads are the biggest, bringing in the most money out of all the classes. They all go between multiple states.
    Class M Railroads: The second biggest class are smaller railroads which usually only operate in one state, but normally take up all of the state.
    Class L Railroads: These railroads, often known by the term shortlines, operate for-profit service over a very small area.
    Undefined Rail Companies: This is any railroad that doesn’t fall into any other category. A good example is a leasing railroad, as these make up most of this class.

From local trains to high-speed regional trains, New Jeromians can be sure they will get where they're going on time. Freight trains are also operated as they would be in most countries.


Small airports exist all over the country, with larger regional and international airports being more common in larger cities. The nation operates a low cost, largely regional airline known as JeromiAir, but other than that, airlines are privatized. The country isn't really known for anything major in flight, but frequent service to the international airports exists.


Boats in New Jeromia are used wherever trains and buses cannot be used, as an alternative for flights, especially if you want to bring a car across the water. High-capacity ferries are used in place of highways where they would be impractical. Some railroads operating services to islands will offer ferry connections, sometimes just bringing the passengers, other times they will bring the whole train on the boat. Cities on the coast near islands also have similar connections. A lot of boats are used for leisure, with cruise ships docking on the coast and sightseeing boats operating in relevant areas.

Postby Arthropol » Wed May 26, 2021 7:28 pm

Public transport is ubiquitous in Arthropol, and is the main way for most people to travel distances longer than walking distance, as the majority of the population do not own cars, and there is an extensive network of public transport systems, such as trains and buses which connect the nation operated by state-owned companies.

Rail transport is the primary form of public transport in Arthropol. In large cities like Arthropol City, Lyon and Toulouse, city centres are crisscrossed by metro heavy rail lines, which are commonplace for transport. In addition, other cities such as Bordeaux, Montpellier, Nice and Poitiers have large light rail systems, with Bordeaux in particular having the most extensive light rail system in the world, while smaller light rail systems are in place in Arthropol City, Lyon and Toulouse. These usually allow for easy transport within city centres to the outside areas of the cities. For example, in the city centre of Arthropol City, any randomly chosen spot is no further than 250 metres from the nearest metro/light rail station, while in the outside areas, the closest metro station to any spot is within 1 kilometre. These systems are mostly funded by taxes, which allow for cheap transport. Across the nation, all children ride free on commuter rail systems and all rail transport within Arthropol City is free to all residents of Arthropol. Prices in other cities are still cheap, at just a few dollars for a single ticket, and far cheaper deals for weekly, monthly or yearly tickets. Metro systems generally operate 24 hours a day, with lesser stops and frequencies in night hours.

There is also an extensive rail system within the country operated by the SNCF, which connects almost every town and city in the country, as well as to European major cities. In addition, all cities are connected by high speed trains reaching speeds of up to 350 km/h, and towns and suburbs are connected by a variety of train networks. Prices are also cheap, and it is possible to travel between any two stations in Metropolitan Arthropol for €100 or less.

One special rail route is the Arthropol City airport maglev. The maglev operates at 500 km/h on a route from the city centre of Arthropol City to its airport, a trip usually taking upwards of an hour by car, or nearly an hour by conventional train. While this trip is more expensive at €20 per passenger, it slashes the travel time to the airport to just 15 minutes.

Bus transport is the secondary form of public transport in Arthropol, most popular in smaller cities such as Poitiers, Limoges, Aix-en-Provence, Toulon and Clermont-Ferrand, and the outside areas of big cities such as Arthropol City. All buses are electric, with some cities such as Limoges employing trolleybus systems, and most using electric battery buses. Buses most commonly operate with frequent stops especially in more residential areas, and on a specific timetable. Many bus routes are extremely specific and only operate once an hour or every few hours, while city centre buses operate similar to metro trains, at a high, unspecified frequency. Buses cost the same as commuter rail, and weekly/monthly/yearly tickets are usually valid on both buses and trains. While intercity buses do exist operated by private companies, they are a rare form of transport, due to the low price and convenience of trains.

Public air transportation is provided by Arthropol Airlines, the flag carrier 50% owned by the Arthropolian state, as well as various private and international airlines. While air travel is rare within Metropolitan Arthropol (except from Arthropol City due to the rapidity of the maglev), it is the fastest way to travel to areas in the country separated by the ocean, such as Corsica (1 hour flight), the Antilles (8 hour flight), Réunion/Mayotte (10 hour flight) and Polynesia/New Caledonia (20 hour nonstop, 23 hours with refuelling stop). Prices vary from €20 to short European flights to the thousands for intercontinental flights.

JRTS (Joijan Rail Transportation Service) is the most widespread rail network in Joija. A JRTS ticket from Gelaam to St. Tristian (the longest direct route) costs around JP$400 ($40) return, which is cheap for a 1050km train ride lasting about 7 hours or so. JRTS is pretty much just as good as a domestic flight, if not better, especially for the environment. The infrastructure is excellent as the train services are partially nationalised. The funding of JRTS through tickets goes towards neutralising carbon emissions by taking a low emission train service in the first place. Most, if not all trains are eco-friendly, using electricity to run instead of diesel or coal. JRTS have also been testing out solar powered trains as well as Maglev technology.

Several cities have their own Metro line as well. Metro lines cost an average of JP$30, making them a cheap way to get around a city. All cities have an excellent bus service, but smaller rural towns and villages may not benefit as much from this. It has been imperative for the last 30 years or so that all villages have at least one JRTS station and several bus stops, even if it means having to take multiple services to get to a certain location.

Most towns have a bus station. Coaches are also available and go around the country, albeit at a slower speed than trains. They are very inexpensive, costing around JP$200 return to get from Primrose Bay to St. Tristian (the longest direct route for a coach), which takes about 15 hours.

Small regional airports and seaplane ports are very common, this is due to the harsh terrain making rail track construction difficult and expensive, not to mention it would require clearing jungle and damaging the environment. There was also a surplus of transport aircraft after WW2, with the communist regime shortly afterwards putting an emphasis towards air travel, due to it being seen as more modern.
Zeppelins are also prevalent for cultural reasons but are mainly used for leisure.

Rail transport is rather limited due to the previous reasons, but does exist, and is mainly concentrated as underground MRT/Subway systems within urbanized areas. Outside of cities it's mainly used for freight and transport of goods as passenger rail has already little demand.

Ferry transport is common for both people and goods between coastal cities. While it isn't the first option as nearby cities are commonly travelled using road and MRT, with further cities using air travel, it is more inexpensive than air travel, making it a common option for those who lack money and a car.

Yeah these exist too and are also a common inexpensive option, but ferry may be more suitable for those in large groups or with lots of items.

Public transport is by far the dominant form of transportation in Australia. Every commune is designed around the primacy of pedestrian and public transportation, with buses and light rail (i.e. trams) providing most intra-commumal transport alongside walking and cycling, and trains providing for most inter-communal and long-distance travel. The nation is serviced by a robust high-speed interstate rail network, the Australic Interstate Rail (A.I.R.) network, which connects every contiguous state capital for both passenger and freight services.

Technically speaking, domestic aircraft travel is also public transportation, as all domestic flights are operated by the national flag carrier, the Australic National Civil Air Service (A.N.C.A.S.). It is quicker to take the train, however, in most cases, than fly.

Ferry services also fall under the category of public transportation. As Australia possesses many islands, the use of ferries is common, including in conjunction with other public transportation (i.e. ferries carrying busses). Ferries are also popular for use in traveling along the nation's largest river system, the Murray-Darling system; many heritage-listed riverboats still operate to this day, and are some of the few things left in the nation that still fly the union jack, as part of the old Murray River naval ensign.

Private transportation (i.e. cars) does exist but is largely outmoded. Most non-public transport on the roads consists of commercial and service vehicles. Car and motorcycle ownership is not restricted, but by practicality is relegated primarily to enthusiasts.

The quality of public transport varies depending on what part of the nation you're in.

On the islands of Marangawhenua and Moanapapa (which also happen to be the most populous islands) public transport is considered excellent - there are highspeed railway lines all the way from southern Marangawhenua, across the Whangakawa strait and up into Moanapapa. Most major cities, especially Tamaki, also have well developed metro and subway lines (usually built by competing private companies) as well as light rail, trolley buses, regular buses and ferries connecting the islands/various harbours. There's even a ferry service that travels up the Awakotiropai river.

Things aren't so great on the other islands. Rangiwhero and Motumakariri are technically connected to the other islands via trainferries, there is no high speed rail on these islands and generally you need a car to get around (though there is an intercity bus service). The same applies for the Ikame nga maramara islands, although these are linked by various ferry services.

Public transport does exist within cities - any city with a population over 1 million will usually have, at the very least, a light rail system while every town with over 80,000 inhabitants usually has a bus service. Again, the quality differs from city to city and depends a lot on which island your city is on.

Public transport is incredibly widespread. It's safe to say that every corner of the country can be travelled to. Trains make up the majority of the long-distance network, with many shorter routes to connect smaller towns to nearby cities. In less densely populated areas, buses are used. Some of these can be long distance, if there are no nearby railway stations to connect to. In metropolitan areas, metros and trams are the main type of public transport. In suburbs and smaller cities, there's often a mix of buses and trams - or just buses. The various islands are connected via ferries. There are some flights between faraway points of the country, but these are extremely expensive and highly discouraged for environmental reasons, but necessary for emergencies.

Public transportation is fairly developed, with high-speed rail being able to take the average Sandalosi citizen to all of the major cities, we also operate intercity bus services that provide an essential service for settlements in-between cities around the country, as well as citizens of said cities. Our in-city public transportation includes large and vast fleets of trolleybuses, trams, tram-trains, and passenger locomotives. We do admit that some of our fleet is outdated, with the use of steam-engine trains being somewhat widespread in the more rural and disconnected parts of Sandalos, however we do our best to offer a quality service to our citizens.

Mexico spends a lot of money on public transportation, especially in the capital Greater Tenochtitlan. We offer trolley busses and the Ehecatl-Quetzalcoatl Train (high-speed rail named after the god of wind). Most cities have these types of transportation and there are current efforts to upgrade older railways that connect Mexico to the Ehecatl-Quetzalcoatl railway system.

All Transit Services in The Federation of Wrengoh are right now partially (or in certain circumstances more) 'Privatized', a consequence of 'Inadequate Service Operations' by four Govt Bodies: The Department of Transport and Transit Services, The Department of Rail, The Department of Boating Regulation, and The Department of Metro Lines (Subway Systems). This has also been undertaken in an effort to modernize services of the above-mentioned Departments.
