for me over here, as i don't have my own car and all, public transport is necessary. as my daughter is young, we use taxi as our main transport right now. but once she is able to walk, it's usually via bus or train for us.

i'm lucky enough to live in a city where public transportation works fairly well. i always use it if i have to, and if for any reason i can't then i walk. obviously, not everyone has the possibility to use it, for many reasons, but i think that as a rule people should try and use it as much as they can. this said, public transportation shoud also work well... there's no point expecting people to take a bus when there's one overpacked bus every half hour...

i don't have my own car that's why im using public transport. i ride buses, jeeps, tricycles and other public transport you can name. for me its not practical to have my own car since gasoline is very expensive and traffic is very common in the area of my work. i would opt to take a public transport rather drive my own car. at times i take cabs. but since its expensive too, i seldom ride on cabs, but when im really in a hurry and when i don't know the exact place where im going, its very convenient for me to ride a taxi or cab.

I try to avoid public transit and walk everywhere but sometimes if it is raining or I have to travel very far, I have no choice but to get on the bus.

Most of the time, I really do not prefer to use public transportation as I have less control over the time and route that I could take. However, as gas prices increase, hm... I'm thinking of just using them anyway to save money.
