In my county the bus fares are very expensive, like a book of ten rides is £34. The return fare to another nearby town or city is often more than a South West day ticket which is for a day £6.70p. I live on the edge of a coastal town and the single fare into town is £1.60p and the return fare in £2.90p. My nearest train station had a ticket machine but it got bashed up. Therefore tickets have to be bought on the train or at the final destination. At rush hour the trains are crowded and the fare in the early morning is pricey. The fare system is very complicated. Except for a cheap day return off peak it is wise to book tickets weeks ahead say up to Birmingham or down to Exeter.

Public transportation here in our place is very reliable too. My place is actually just a stone's throw away from the subway station. If you are going to the city, it is easy to just take the subway instead of driving a car. With traffic jams and all that, taking the subway is the best way to go. Although when going to work, I drive my car. My work place is not in the city and though it is near a bus stop, it would take me three transfer before reaching my workplace. That would take more time than necessary so I just drive my car going to work.
