I live in London, and wanted to ask a specific detailed question about using my Oyster card (payment card for public transport in London). Does that count as travel, or because I'm a regular "commuter" in my home city, does that not count? (I don't have a regular journey, but I do often go to the same places). I'm in two minds, because to my mind, "travel" is something normally used to refer to somewhere away from your normal daily movements. I wondered what the community consensus is, though?
If you word the question to be unequivocally identifiable as a local commuter question, it may not be strictly off-topic, but would be sure to gather down-votes. Depending on the perceived topicality, it may also gather votes to close.
If you word the question to be more generic, essentially making it on-topic to general visitors to your city, then by all means, it would be on topic and might even gather you some up-votes as well.
Finally, you can always visit our travel chat room and ask some of the regulars to help you word your question in as successful a way as possible, or they may even be able to help you with an answer (although an on-topic question asked would be preferable.)
