Going home late?



Going home late in Singapore is rather common. It is also rather safe.
Even the public transport has a poster informing you about cheaper means to get home after midnight.
This service is called ''NIGHT RIDER'' :) only S$3

However, I also understand it is not so for some countries. Ladies better stay home when night falls.
Is it like this also in your city?

Nice photo, zannnie! In Tokyo some young people play over night on Friday and Saturday night. But most of people don't because the transportation ended about midnight. We have to wait till six in the morning to go back home. When I was college student, I would go clubbing over night on weekend:-)

Hi macky,

Thanks for your nice comments once again!:)

I dun use this nite rider service more becos i seldom go clubbing til midnite or early morning :) even if i do, I'll normally take a taxi becos I am staying too far away from the city areas :) but frankly, it's really very reasonable pricing considering EXPRESS bus service:D

I have never tried the nite rider as well. Usually when it's past midnite, I will just hail a cab and go home as soon as possible! (to sleep..)

Coimbra is a such small city that we doesn't have that problem.
The city has only 300 000 inhabitants and it have a spirit of village in big point!

The night is relatively safe, but the girls need to take care, common to any place in the world.

The public transportations almost stop entirely, being just insured for special busses and services of Taxi.

Funny!

in Budapest we have a quite good night-time public transportation. Its like two different system. Till midnight (the subway till 11:00pm) everything goes. After that only night-busses following the lines of subways and other important routes upstairs. Until 5:00am. The downtown is safe but some part of the cities are not for ladies at nights.
