Public transport in Hamburg is good
This is according to a new study conducted by EuroTest, a collective of automobile clubs across 15 countries. The organisation rated different nations' transportation networks, taking into consideration travel time, ease of transfer, information, operating hours, cost and access to bike and car parks.
Hamburg itself was awarded 'good' status, joining the likes of Cologne, Rome, Vienna, Copenhagen, Prague (although Tribune Media Services' Rick Steves recently warned travellers about using taxis here, as rogue drivers often try to con tourists), Barcelona and Helsinki. So there you have it - if you're considering going off on holiday and only have very limited means, heading to Hamburg could mean that you get to see as much of the city as you can on a budget. Yippee!
However, more could be done worldwide to cater for the needs of disabled people. It was also seen that, out of all 23 cities looked at, just a third of public transport stops had accommodation for the blind, with a fifth providing wheelchair access.
