(This is what you need to leave trains, cars and buses, but it also works in a more figurative sense for projects or processes. And even generally "society", if you decide to live in the woods, for example.)
The most notable English relative is the noun stair, but the root is also the origin of stickler, which originally was about putting on a base, and hemistich and stoichiometry. Which are both words I had no clue about. The first one has something to do with poetry and the second one with chemistry, bit the common theme is “layering rows“. Kind of like stairs :).
In German, steigen and its relatives are the only members I could find.
