Stasiun merupakan pusat berkumpulnya calon penumpang yang akan pergi menggunakan jasa transportasi kereta api. Dengan hiruk pikuk seperti itu, ada 8 hal yang harus diketahui traveler saat berada di stasiun.

menyusun kiat khusus bagi traveler yang sedang berada di stasiun kereta dan hendak berlibur menggunakan jasa transportasi kereta api. Berikut 8 tips yang mungkin bisa membuat Anda nyaman saat berada di stasiun kereta:

1. Datang lebih awal ke stasiun kereta

Ketika Anda akan melakukan perjalanan menggunakan transportasi kereta api jarak jauh, sebaiknya Anda datang lebih awal dari jadwal keberangkatan yang tertera di tiket. Apalagi bagi traveler yang berdomisili di Jakarta, karena kemacetan ibukota yang tidak bisa diprediksi.

Persiapkan waktu panjang untuk berangkat lebih awal dari rumah, sehingga Anda bisa tenang sampai di stasiun. Sebaiknya, Anda tiba di stasiun 1 jam sebelum jadwal keberangkatan kereta Anda. Lebih baik Anda menunggu lama di stasiun sampai keberangkatan itu tiba, daripada tiket Anda hangus karena ketinggalan kereta.

2. Waspada kejahatan

Aksi kejahatan selalu menjadi hal klasik ketika kita berada di suatu pusat keramaian. Orang-orang jahat selalu mengiringi kita termasuk di dalam stasiun kereta. Misalnya saja copet, mereka siap beraksi dengan jurus jitunya dan selalu tergugah untuk mengambil barang-barang berharga kita.

Banyak trik dan modus yang sudah mereka rancang sehingga barang Anda bisa raib di tangan copet. Jangan sesekali mengumbar barang berharga Anda seperti gadget, dompet, perhiasan dan lainnya. Menjaga barang berharga yang Anda miliki tidak ada ruginya, ketimbang Anda menangis karena kelengahan Anda.

3. Beli tiket di loket resmi

Bagi traveler yang hendak pergi dengan menggunakan angkutan kereta api, pasti Anda harus membeli tiket terlebih dulu. Setiap stasiun pasti sudah disediakan loket resmi untuk membeli tiket kereta.

Tapi, tak lepas dari itu masih banyak calo-calo nakal yang menawarkan tiket dengan harga yang melonjak dari harga asli, terutama saat musim liburan seperti Lebaran. Lebih baik mengantre di loket, daripada Anda harus membayar tiket dengan harga mahal dari calo tersebut.

4. Jangan mudah percaya dengan orang asing

Manusia diciptakan Tuhan dengan berbagai macam karakter dan sifat. Ada orang baik, namun tak jauh dengan orang jahat. Jangan mudah percaya dengan orang lain yang baru kita kenal. Seperti halnya, jangan sembarang menitipkan tas atau barang yang Anda bawa. Bisa-bisa barang Anda raib di tangan orang yang baru Anda kenal.

5. Jaga kebersihan

Menjaga kebersihan merupakan hal yang wajib kita terapkan di mana saja, termasuk di stasiun. Banyak orang yang suka melalaikan hal kecil ini. Padahal pihak stasiun sudah menyediakan banyak tempat sampah di setiap sudut ruangan stasiun.

Dari sekarang, biasakan jangan membuang sampah di sembarang tempat agar kita tetap nyaman saat berada di stasiun. Selain itu, Anda juga harus mempunyai rasa saling memiliki dan menjaga fasilitas yang ada di sekitar kita, sehingga tercipta kenyamanan di stasiun kereta. Dengan hal itu pula, suasana sekitar menjadi enak dipandang mata.

6. Bingung jadwal dan jalur kereta, tanya ke petugas

Terkadang sesama penumpang sama-sama tidak tahu jadwal atau jalur keberangkatan kereta. Kereta yang akan diberangkatkan dari stasiun tersebut tak hanya 1 pemberangkatan saja. Jalur kereta yang disediakan juga banyak dan membingungkan calon penumpang.

Jika Anda masih ragu dengan keberangkatan kereta Anda, sebaiknya tanyakan kepada petugas tentang kepastian jadwal tersebut. Jangan sampai Anda ketinggalan kereta karena salah jadwal dan jalur pemberangkatan kereta yang akan ditumpangi.

7. Bawa makanan ringan dan minuman jika perlu

Bagi traveler yang gemar cemal-cemil, Anda bisa menyiapkan makanan ringan yang bisa dibawa dari rumah. Sembari menunggu kereta tiba, Anda bisa membuka bekal tersebut agar tidak terlalu bosan untuk menunggu datangnya kereta.

8. Hati-Hati dengan porter

Setiap stasiun besar banyak orang yang menawarkan jasa angkut yang biasa disebut dengan porter. Ketika traveler baru tiba di stasiun kereta, porter biasanya menyerbu penumpang untuk menawarkan jasa itu.

Jika tak ingin memakai jasa tersebut, sebaiknya amankan barang-barang bawaan Anda terlebih dulu. Jangan sampai barang tersebut diangkut tanpa sepengetahuan Anda, kemudian Anda dikenai tarif mahal sesudahnya. Selamat Traveling!

Saat Berada di Stasiun ada 8 Hal yang Harus Diketahui

Hockey is not exactly known as a city game, but played on roller skates, it once held sway as the sport of choice in many New York neighborhoods.

“City kids had no rinks, no ice, but they would do anything to play hockey,” said Edward Moffett, former director of the Long Island City Y.M.C.A. Roller Hockey League, in Queens, whose games were played in city playgrounds going back to the 1940s.

From the 1960s through the 1980s, the league had more than 60 teams, he said. Players included the Mullen brothers of Hell’s Kitchen and Dan Dorion of Astoria, Queens, who would later play on ice for the National Hockey League.

One street legend from the heyday of New York roller hockey was Craig Allen, who lived in the Woodside Houses projects and became one of the city’s hardest hitters and top scorers.

“Craig was a warrior, one of the best roller hockey players in the city in the ’70s,” said Dave Garmendia, 60, a retired New York police officer who grew up playing with Mr. Allen. “His teammates loved him and his opponents feared him.”

Young Craig took up hockey on the streets of Queens in the 1960s, playing pickup games between sewer covers, wearing steel-wheeled skates clamped onto school shoes and using a roll of electrical tape as the puck.

His skill and ferocity drew attention, Mr. Garmendia said, but so did his skin color. He was black, in a sport made up almost entirely by white players.

“Roller hockey was a white kid’s game, plain and simple, but Craig broke the color barrier,” Mr. Garmendia said. “We used to say Craig did more for race relations than the N.A.A.C.P.”

Mr. Allen went on to coach and referee roller hockey in New York before moving several years ago to South Carolina. But he continued to organize an annual alumni game at Dutch Kills Playground in Long Island City, the same site that held the local championship games.

The reunion this year was on Saturday, but Mr. Allen never made it. On April 26, just before boarding the bus to New York, he died of an asthma attack at age 61.

Word of his death spread rapidly among hundreds of his old hockey colleagues who resolved to continue with the event, now renamed the Craig Allen Memorial Roller Hockey Reunion.

The turnout on Saturday was the largest ever, with players pulling on their old equipment, choosing sides and taking once again to the rink of cracked blacktop with faded lines and circles. They wore no helmets, although one player wore a fedora.

Another, Vinnie Juliano, 77, of Long Island City, wore his hearing aids, along with his 50-year-old taped-up quads, or four-wheeled skates with a leather boot. Many players here never converted to in-line skates, and neither did Mr. Allen, whose photograph appeared on a poster hanging behind the players’ bench.

“I’m seeing people walking by wondering why all these rusty, grizzly old guys are here playing hockey,” one player, Tommy Dominguez, said. “We’re here for Craig, and let me tell you, these old guys still play hard.”

Everyone seemed to have a Craig Allen story, from his earliest teams at Public School 151 to the Bryant Rangers, the Woodside Wings, the Woodside Blues and more.

Mr. Allen, who became a yellow-cab driver, was always recruiting new talent. He gained the nickname Cabby for his habit of stopping at playgrounds all over the city to scout players.

Teams were organized around neighborhoods and churches, and often sponsored by local bars. Mr. Allen, for one, played for bars, including Garry Owen’s and on the Fiddler’s Green Jokers team in Inwood, Manhattan.

Play was tough and fights were frequent.

“We were basically street gangs on skates,” said Steve Rogg, 56, a mail clerk who grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, and who on Saturday wore his Riedell Classic quads from 1972. “If another team caught up with you the night before a game, they tossed you a beating so you couldn’t play the next day.”

Mr. Garmendia said Mr. Allen’s skin color provoked many fights.

“When we’d go to some ignorant neighborhoods, a lot of players would use slurs,” Mr. Garmendia said, recalling a game in Ozone Park, Queens, where local fans parked motorcycles in a lineup next to the blacktop and taunted Mr. Allen. Mr. Garmendia said he checked a player into the motorcycles, “and the bikes went down like dominoes, which started a serious brawl.”

A group of fans at a game in Brooklyn once stuck a pole through the rink fence as Mr. Allen skated by and broke his jaw, Mr. Garmendia said, adding that carloads of reinforcements soon arrived to defend Mr. Allen.

And at another racially incited brawl, the police responded with six patrol cars and a helicopter.

Before play began on Saturday, the players gathered at center rink to honor Mr. Allen. Billy Barnwell, 59, of Woodside, recalled once how an all-white, all-star squad snubbed Mr. Allen by playing him third string. He scored seven goals in the first game and made first string immediately.

“He’d always hear racial stuff before the game, and I’d ask him, ‘How do you put up with that?’” Mr. Barnwell recalled. “Craig would say, ‘We’ll take care of it,’ and by the end of the game, he’d win guys over. They’d say, ‘This guy’s good.’”
