I put a couple of tips on for London, how to get west and east.

Great job, mate! Maybe you can also write some things you learnt from your exotic hitch experiences, like in China? :) Guaka 21:52, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

I would suggest to gather the information about stations that does not have gates? Maplefanta 02:17, 5 December 2007 (CET)

I'm trying to edit the page to make it easier to use. I've moved the public transport information to the beginning and added some points. I know we have it in nomadwiki, but that's more extensive and I think it's important to know at least a few important things before trying to navigate the system yourself. In most cases you will have to use public transport to get in or out (and obviously inside the city) and it can be confusing for newcomers, who don't realize the size of the city and the prices.

Also, the hitchhiking in/out sections are a mess and I'm not sure how to fix it. The price information doesn't make sense to me because it really depends on the zone you're traveling from and the time. Same for "how to get there" explanations. It's a huge city and the directions will differ for everyone - there's not even a single city center most people would be traveling from.I think it would be better to erase all these prices and directions, and to leave the destination station and the line it's on (e.g for Mottingham - Mottingham National Rail, zone 4, etc). Then people can check the public transport section to get information about fares. Citymapper is both an app and a website, so if people can access Hitchwiki they can also use Citymapper :) I don't want to erase things without hearing what others think, but I feel that the page is just too confusing now (this being said after spending 2.5 months in London and hitchhiking in and out :) ).
