I went out by bus or sometimes taxi. I don't own my private car.
To my satisfaction, the public transportation here is very good, i can nearly get to anywhere i wish to by bus. In late this year, i may buy a car. LOL.
As you say,the public transport is very convenient.But I think that the public transportation is too crowded,especially in the morning and evening.So at that time every day is the moment I hate.
I always go by car. We don't have public transportation where I live. To far out in the country. I recently had to have my car fixed and while it was in the shop I was lost without it.
Thanks for the topic!
