I'm a university student.I take the transportation ,bus, to school everyday. My parents pay for my transportation fee. One-way 15 NTD(Taiwan Taipei),but students have discount. So I only pay 12 NTD. The most favorit thing I do on the way to school is listening the radio.

I used to take the buses to go to school, but I am sick and tired of it. I had to transfer twice so that I go to school. It is really tiring because the buses didn't keep on time, and the worse thing is that weather is really cold, I couldn't wait for those.
I really want to drive my own car.

I used to live in a cosmopolitan city in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At that time, I would ride buses to go to and come back home from work. Although lots of people have cars in a city such as Rio, I always thought it was quite stressful to be stuck in traffic inside a car. Besides, driving in a big city is quite dangerous - it seems there are no rules. Everyone seems to live by the "me-first" philosophy of life. They'll do anything to be ahead of you and get to their final destination faster (a lot faster) than you. On the other hand,on the bus, you don't need to worry about these things. If the bus is not crowded - of course - You just sit down and relax.

In Chile... I usually go to my job in bus... sometimes in car... but My favourite way going on bus... I can sleep, I can see the people running across the streets to their jobs... and in the winter I like seeing the rain falling down the streets... It´s funny to travel by bus

I'm a student. Three years ago, I used to go to school buy bus. You know, the bus is always crowded at the rush hour, and it's so terrible. You have to stand by one foot because there is not enough place to lay the other foot. And it's so hot. But i prefer bus to motorbike because of safety.

Hi! kana yo,I agree with you that most of the time we go to school are in the rush hour.Many people
are in a bus.But the situation is getting worse in the raining day,the floor of the bus is wet everywhere.That's is more terrible than the common day.

I think the better way is making physical exercise, because it means health. Walking, when you are near your school or job. I love riding bicicle and this way of transportation is very good for staying health then I prefer that.Sometimes I am afraid by the out of atention drivers that can put bikers in accident.

I am a university student. I always walk to school everyday. It takes me about 5-10 minutes beacause school dormitory is very nearby the campus. Therefore, I don’t need to spend any money taking any public transportation to school. I very like to go to school on foot.

Liliana said...

I take two buses to go to work and I don't really like it because most of the time is crowded and there is no room to take a sit. It takes me about one hour to get there. But the good thing is that is cheaper than going by car.

The public transportation in Taipei was time-consuming before the development of subway system. Now it is very convenient and economical for the students.

About topic "Public Transportation", I have somethings to share with you. I live in Hochiminh city - Vietnam. I go to work office by my motorcycle. I can't take the bus because it's not really convince for me, it start around 06:00 am and end around 21:00 pm at the some routine. If I take a bus, I can't study or to make somethings else after the work (often 18:00 pm).
There are traffic jam in this city in everyday still Sunday.The buses drive slowly than motorcycles. So , there are many motorcycles in Vietnam.

Public Transportations Or Driving A Car

If there are a lot of public transportations in the area thatI travel, I much prefer using them; trains or buses. I can see more people there at stations more than I rent a car and drive. Ticket's cost is not so expensive and really convenient. Sometimes it takes you a time to buy a ticket or you have to wait until you get on the ride, though, I've never felt like I'm wasting a time. Including all of these I feel like that Im' traveling, and I really enjoy it. So when I travel, I like taking public transportaions instead of driving a car.

I'm white-collar workers. I ride my motorcycle to my office every day although recently there's always raining and very cold in my city, but it is very conveinent for me. But when I visit another cities, I would like to take public transportations, because it is more comfortable and safty when you are in a strange area.
