I will be in Europe in October, November, and December. During this time many buses dont run. And the train is way to expensive for longer trips. So what would be the best way to get from place to place during these times?

A little more description would probably help in getting the best possible answer. Do you have particular countries in mind or are you talking about within specific cities? The more detailed you are the better imformation you can get. There are lots of people from lots of places on here to help, so ask away!

I'm not sure which buses won't be running...do you mean the busabout kind? Certainly you can travel on Eurolines (www.eurolines.com) all year round, they mostly have point-to-point long distance trips and are quite reasonable.

Have you checked into rail passes, as they can make the train fares a lot more reasonable in western Europe (click on the RailEurope banner for details)?

A lot will depend on where you are travelling, but people still move around a lot in the winter over here, so there will be options. Tell us where you're going, and we'll help you get there!
