  1. I have a Mostly clueless tip. Say you are in a ship with a small jump range, for example a hauler, and want to get back to your bubble bus, which is parked 50ly away. This would be 20 jumps in the hauler.
    Simply book an Apex taxi back to your bubble bus! Or two! While the taxi is working, you can do something more interesting like checking that drying paint, or crafting a cuppa.
    Then when you get to the station, visit the shipyard Inter Astra and ask to use your bubble bus and you are all set!
