I use the public transport services a lot - the bus mainly - for short distances, and the train, for the longer distances.

I live quite far from my office so I do commute for a long time. I ride the jeepney (most common mode of transportation here in Manila), bus and train. :)

Thanks for your reply. Bus, train and jeepney seems to be most common mode of transport in many countries. Happy mylotting.

Thanks for your time. When traveling across states with my family, i too go in the car. But within city, the fewer cars there are, the better it is for the traffic jams. Cars are very convenient for door-to door traveling where the public transport service is inadequate. Happy mylotting.

Thanks for your time. Having a car is very convenient when you want to move out of the regular pattern of the buses. I often have to walk nearly a Km from the bus stop to my home, and since im tired when i reach back in the evenings, i have my parents come pick me up. Happy mylotting

I have my own car so I use it. Or if it is a really nice day outside I will walk if I don't have to take my kids with me. I love walking in the fresh air it is good exercise and it saves money on gas too.

Thanks for your time. Walking is the best way to cover distance and get exercise and save on gas. When you're alone, this may seem tedious and lonely but there's always the bicycle. thanks for your time. Happy mylotting

I drive every where. Im on a college campus, but its just easier to get in my car and drive where I want to rather than wait for the bus to come and then wait through all the stops and then after an hour get to where i want to go

Thanks for sharing. In some places, i can imagine its not possible to wait for buses as their service rate is very low and infrequent. Happy mylotting.

I perfer car for short distance but its OK with train for the long distance.Here in out country the public transport system is bad so most of the people opt for their own mode of transport.

Thanks for your time. In some parts of my city as well, the public transport is over-crowded or just doesn't exist. I hope they will increase and expand the system soon. Happy mylotting

I live outside of a small town in Florida so we don't have bus service. My main mode of transportation is my truck while my husband alternates between driving his truck or riding one of his motorcycles. For long distance travel we take one of the trucks.

That definitely has to be cycling. I take the bus occasionally but I just love keeping fit and cycling definitely does it for me! I'm not that keen when you become cramped in with a whole lot of other people. Once a cyclist always a cyclist I guess! Andrew

I use my car most of the time, but I also have a bike. I will use my bike on some short journeys and sometimes cycle to work when the weather is not bad. I find cycling keeps me fit and I enjoy it alot. It also saves some money on petrol for the car.

I'd have to walk 5 miles to even get to a bus stop and then the bus only comes through a couple of times a day. So I drive, everywhere I go. I wouldn't mind taking a bus or a train but it's not at all practical.
