Germany’s €9 monthly travel pass is coming this summer


(CNN) — A whole month of unlimited transport for just $9.50 — that’s a great deal at any time, but in a time of fuel price hikes, rocketing car rental rates and a worldwide cost of living crisis, it becomes unbeatable.

So pack your bags, because the most affordable travel destination this summer, if we’re going by transport, appears to be Germany.

The German government has today approved the creation of a €9 ($9.50) monthly public transport ticket. It will be launched in June — just in time for a summer trip.

The card can be used across the entire country, on local and regional transport — trains, buses and trams, according to local media.

However, local means local — so it can’t be used for long-distance bus or train services. In other words, the popular IC, EC and ICE trains are exempt — although you can combine a long-distance trip with regional transport covered by the pass. Trains marked RE are regional, and therefore part of the package.

The deal will run for the months of June, July and August, as part of a government energy relief package by incentivizing people to use public transport to get around this summer. €2.5 billion ($2.6 billion) has been pumped into the project by the government. Each pass will be valid per calendar month — so if you buy yours on the 14th, you’ll still only be able to use it on the end of the month.

But though it’s been designed for locals, tourists can buy the pass too.

Germany’s national railway, Deutsche Bahn, has already added the passes to its website. They will go on sale on May 23.

The only catch? You can’t make a seat reservation with this pass. But at this price, you’d probably happily ride on the roof.

UPDATE: Malaysian drivers bewildered by Thailand Pass, as southern border reopens


THOU SHALL NOT PASS. That’s the message some northern-bound Malaysian travelers received when they attempted to drive their cars into Thailand on yesterday morning, only to find they’d forgotten the most important thing: you STILL need to register for Thailand Pass. In advance.

Thailand finally reopened its land border with Malaysia on April 1 for travelers by private transportation. But it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing for those who forgot that the beleaguered Thailand Pass system is still in place — and you’re required to register before entering the country. Apparently, not many people got the memo. Little more than a hundred Malaysians had registered before the Sadao crossing in Songkhla province opened at 5 o’clock this morning, the Bangkok Post reported.

Bewilderment at the Border

A boarder town across from the Malaysian state of Kedah, Sadao is home to the primary land crossing with Malaysia, which had been closed for two years due to the pandemic. Local police, as well as soldiers, were ready to provide assistance to customs officials today, in case things got out of hand. Probably, they were prepared to arrest anyone who attempted to gun it across the border when they realized they didn’t have a stupid QR code and all that ridiculous paperwork, including a Covid-19 vaccination certificate and proof of reservation/booking for a SHA extra plus hotel, whatever the heck that is.

According to local officials, some northern-bound Malaysians were confused to find that they couldn’t enter Thailand with simply a passport and proof of vaccination, like they could enter Singapore at their southern border starting the same day. Thailand customs officials reportedly turned away would-be travellers who had failed to sign up for the Thailand Pass system. In total, only 107 travel-ready Malaysians had jumped through all the right hoops to enter the Land of Smiles.

The Fortunate Few

Those Malaysians travelers who had all their paperwork ready were allowed to enter Thailand under the Test & Go scheme, where they were required to take an RT-PCR test, then wait at their SHA extra plus hotel for about five hours for the results. According to officials, those who test negative will be free to roam the country. But the incoming foreigners mustn’t forget the law of the land — to always wear a mask in public and wash your hands often. Anyone who tests positive for the virus will be “treated” — i.e. quarantined at one Sadao’s 7 SHA extra plus certified hotels.

Ryan Lih was one of the fortunate few who entered Thailand at the Sadao crossing yesterday via Test & Go with the first batch of drivers from Malaysia. He said he had applied for Thailand Pass seven days in advance and received his QR code the same day…. “There’s no fooling anyone. Many Malaysians are either not internet savvy enough to read/follow the news about the requirements [or] just assumed the old processes, by which they find out the hard way.”

Local officials say they’ve set up a coordination centre to assist the incoming visitors, yesterday most of whom have families or businesses in Thailand, the Bangkok Post reported. Meanwhile, other checkpoints in provinces along Thailand’s southern border are also scheduled to reopen today, the Bangkok Post reported.

Local officials pointed out that more foreign travellers could now enter the country using the Thailand Pass system since the the government has already relied the Covid-19 travel requirements under the Test & Go scheme. However, that was clearly not the case for those who mistakenly thought they could get in with just a Malaysian passport and nothing more. Indeed, that used to be the case. Welcome to the new normal.

A Better Way

The situation along Thailand’s southern border presents a stark contrast to Malaysia’s southern border with Singapore, which also repoened yesterday for the first time since two years of pandemic — without the pandemic-era requirements of Covid-19 testing and quarantine. Now fully-vaccinated travellers can freely cross the land boarder on the southern end of the Malay peninsula with only a valid passport and proof of vaccination. Children up to age 12 who aren’t fully vaccinated must be accompanied by a fully-vaccinated adult.

Lines of cars, motorcycles and people on foot began forming at border crossings before midnight and had successfully crossed over by 1am, CNA reported. As of 7am, more than 11 thousand travellers had passed through the Tuas and Woodlands checkpoints, according to the the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority, which had set up new automated lanes to accommodated the anticipated influx of travellers.

At the Woodlands Checkpoints, about a hundred people lined up to board the cross-border shuttle buses early in the morning and vehicles honked as they crossed over to the other side, CNA reported… “People cheered and waved their hands as they approached the barricades.”

The border reopening follows bilateral agreements from Singapore and Malaysia to ease their pandemic-era travel restrictions, as the two nations embrace living-with-covid strategies in an effort to end the pandemic restore normal rhythms of life among their populations in Southeast Asia.

Last week, Singapore and Malaysia health ministers said that their nations were working together to fully resume air and land travel for vaccinated travellers. In the pre-pandemic era, the two countries shared one of the busiest land crossings in the world.

Snoqualmie Pass to be cleared for freight travel Sunday


Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass, Washington’s main east-west artery, will reopen to limited freight traffic at some point on Sunday, after being closed since Thursday morning by a major winter storm, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) said early this afternoon.

The state agency, dealing with heavy snow, ice, avalanches and debris that has closed four of the state’s main mountain passes, implored drivers not to line up at the I-90 closure points — at milepost 34 near North Bend and milepost 106 at Ellensburg — until its next reopening update, expected “early this evening.”

“When we reopen it will be to get freight moving – any other trips should continue to be delayed as more work remains to make roads ready for general traffic,” WSDOT said on social media. “This is vital to understand: the opening is to get freight moving, not for general travel.”

Highway 2 over Stevens Pass, another major east-west route, will probably not reopen before Wednesday.

Blewett Pass, Highway 97, which connects I-90 and Highway 2 on the east side of the Cascades, was still expected to reopen Sunday.

After a major multi-day operation to alleviate avalanche danger and clear feet of snow, fallen trees and other debris from I-90, crews had nearly made the 3,022-foot mountain freeway passable, albeit with major restrictions.

The freeway will be limited to two narrow lanes, bounded on both sides by high banks of compact snow and ice. Most exit ramps, chain-up areas, restroom facilities and access to local communities remain inaccessible, WSDOT said.

“Because of those factors, all drivers need to be prepared to cross the pass without stopping. There will be no safe areas in order to stop until you cross the pass,” the agency said.

Some 30,000 vehicles traverse the pass on a typical day. The closure, now stretching into its fourth day, has impacted cross-state travel and commerce.

A fourth major mountain pass, U.S. Highway 12 over White Pass, is also still closed and is unlikely to reopen before late Monday. The closure is from milepost 135 to milepost 183, though local traffic is allowed up to milepost 168 from the east side.

Highway 2 remains closed from milepost 55 to milepost 99 at the west end of snowbound Leavenworth “due to heavy snow accumulation and extreme avalanche danger,” according to WSDOT’s Stevens Pass report. Snow slides as high as 70 feet, 4 inches of ice on the roadway and power and cell service outages at the 4,061-foot summit are complicating work to reopen the route.

An “atmospheric river” weather system arriving Tuesday is expected to bring heavy rain to the Olympic Peninsula and more snow to the mountains, but snow levels, at least initially, are likely to be higher than the passes, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

The last time all four passes were closed simultaneously was 13 years ago. During that closure, Jan. 7-10, 2009, Snoqualmie and White were closed for all four days, while Stevens and Blewett each closed for two days, according to WSDOT. Interstate 5, which closed due to flooding in the Chehalis Valley on Thursday, was also closed during the 2009

The Chehalis River remained under a flood warning Sunday morning, according to the NWS, but I-5 is open and waters were expected to recede.

Northbound I-5 near DuPont, Pierce County, reopened at 9 a.m. Sunday after lane closures overnight for emergency pothole repairs.

Pass closures prevent travel between east and west sides of Washington state


There’s no way to drive across Washington mountains until sometime this weekend, as the worst combination of snow and rain in many years has closed all four of the state’s winter highway routes between east and west.

A whiteout snowstorm early Thursday, followed by freezing rain and a half-foot or more of snow in the forecast, forced the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to close Snoqualmie, Stevens, White and Blewett passes.

These closures will delay freight moving across the Northwest, while ravaging the plans of New Year’s week travelers, on their way back to homes and colleges. Alpine resorts are blanketed in snow, a lot of it unstable, without the means for skiers to arrive.

WSDOT is telling the public it doesn’t expect to reopen the passes until Saturday, and that travelers should delay plans for at least a few days.

It’s been almost three years since a severe 47-hour snow shutdown at Snoqualmie Pass on Feb. 11, 2019, when a burst of four feet of snow in two days brought avalanche risks.

But it’s unusual — and maybe unprecedented — to close all four passes simultaneously for more than a few hours, effectively splitting the state into two. 

“I’ve been with WSDOT for 16 years and don’t recall a time when we had all four passes closed,” said regional spokesperson Meagan Lott, on the Snoqualmie Pass twitter feed. Three passes closed for a day as an avalanche precaution in January 2009.

White Pass rarely closes, but was under extreme avalanche risk Thursday. A section of Highway 12 through the pass collapsed in a late-2015 washout and another in fall 2013, reducing travel to one lane during reconstruction.

People desperate to drive can still try Interstate 5 south to Vancouver, turn inland at Highway 14 along the north side of the Columbia River Gorge, followed by a left turn at Goldendale over Satus Pass on Highway 97, into the Yakima Valley. Even that crossing requires chains on all but four-wheel drive cars. Oregon’s Interstate 84 through the Gorge is closed.

The ports of Seattle and Tacoma report exporters from eastern Washington and beyond are not able to get their cargo to the docks.

A big share of Washington state’s average $42 million per day of trucked cargo is stymied, said Sheri Call, president and CEO of Washington Trucking Association. Typically those include perishable products, such as tankers of raw milk heading for Longview via White Pass, or Issaquah via Snoqualmie Pass, she said.

“I’m kind of likening this to a mini micro supply-chain crisis,” Call said.

The town of Cle Elum, east of Snoqualmie Pass, declared an emergency based on “an unprecedented amount of snow,” encouraging residents to stay off the roads.

Snoqualmie Pass, the lowest of the four passes at 3,022 feet above sea level, received 236 inches this season as of Jan. 3, the most in 20 years.

WSDOT said trees are falling and avalanches could cover Interstate 90 at any moment. The road-clearing team plowed and removed trees east of Hyak but stayed away from avalanche prone areas to the west, Derrey said.

Normally there are between 12 and 20 workers per shift, and the group is down “a couple” under COVID quarantines this week, she said. Some road workers quit last fall rather than obey the governor’s vaccine mandate. But the immediate problem isn’t workforce, but extreme precipitation.

“We’re kind of on pause,” Derrey said midday Thursday. “It’s too dangerous even for our avalanche crews to get in and do assessments.” State officials said heavy snowfall and near-zero visibility have overwhelmed their crews.

The National Weather Service reported visibility of only a quarter-mile Thursday morning in heavy snow at Snoqualmie Pass. Forecasts called for rain later Thursday, followed by six inches to another foot of snow there on Friday and Saturday before the sun appears Sunday.

I-90’s shutdown affects not only the summit, but a full 72 miles between North Bend and Ellensburg. A resident at Snoqualmie Pass tweeted her thanks Thursday to officials who notified neighbors of the coming storm, so they had time to buy groceries and supplies.

After the Thursday blizzards, weather forecasts call for heavy rain, which could freeze or create a dangerous layer over the softer snow. WSDOT says rainfall “will increase the avalanche issues.”

After the weather calms, state crews will need hours to cut away downed trees, perform avalanche control work such as bombarding snow with explosives, and clearing icicles from overhead signs. WSDOT has even used World War II cannons to blast unstable snow, but it’s unclear whether they’re available and practical this week.

Ski resorts at Crystal Mountain, The Summit at Snoqualmie including Alpental, and Stevens Pass said they’re closed. It’s the latest snafu in a ski season marked by bumpy schedules, as Crystal Mountain has gone back and forth on reservations, and Stevens Pass is beleaguered by customer complaints about staffing.

At I-90’s Exit 34 near North Bend, a pair of state troopers blocked the rainy eastbound freeway. About 30 truckers parked on the shoulder Thursday morning, along with others in the nearby truck stop, but few cars arrived, as WSDOT’s widespread messaging led travelers to turn around sooner, or to stay home.

Pass closures illustrate the need for more and larger truck-parking facilities in Washington state, Call said. Her group advocates a privately-operated site on I-90 but those developments provoke community opposition.

Though extreme weather caused this closure, Call said the state shouldn’t have fired highway workers who resisted Gov. Jay Inslee’s Oct. 18 vaccination mandate. Call said policy is partly to blame for previous winter shutdowns. “Most of those workers, the plow drivers, are in the vehicle by themselves,” she said. The state has blamed blockages largely on bad drivers, and spun-out trucks without chains.

Inslee mentioned in passing “we’ve had challenges with snowplow drivers,” at his routine COVID news conference Wednesday. WSDOT officials said other factors, such as a national shortage of commercially licensed drivers are more significant, and the agency is training new workers.

Despite snow and ice east of the mountains, I-82 and I-90 remained open east of Ellensburg. But many areas presented stop-and-go conditions, with chains required in steep spots.
