combined means of transport
Explanation:
This is quite normal, at least with the German railway system. When requesting connection information from A to B (whether it be online or at the ticket counter) the computer provides you with connection details which may include train and bus travel or a journey which is made partly in a high-speed intercity train and partly in a suburban train.

Perfect, thanks very much! I'd normally wait a bit longer for other people to respond, but this clarifies things perfectly and I have a deadline.

Thanks again,
