Whenever available, I would take the public transportation. Compared with decades ago, we have more metro lines, and buses are in better conditions, no so crowded. Public transportation is encouraged by the government. If we take the second bus within two hours, the charge is cut half. For emergency cases, I also take the taxi, but it is really costy for long distances, and in jams. And recently the charge is again raised following the rise of the fuel price. Public transportation is in long run a better solution.

When it is convenient, I would rather take public transportation than drive my car. Fuel cost is getting higher and higher and sometimes it is no longer cost effective to use one's car unless it is really necessary. enjoy!
