I do in a way have learned at what time the Rail transit will be full of passengers that it will be pretty difficult to go in queu to buy tickets. i know which train stations has the most number of passengers so i avoid those stations and ride where there are lesser people that go on queu so i will not have to go with big crowds. i know also when usually the traffic happens on the road and where it usually happnes. cause i do usually go out a lot on different time of the day. that i have mastered in a way these things. but if you rarely go out it will be impossible to know these things. SO have you mastered the art of avoiding traffic?

Here in my place, you cannot avoid traffic, and that sucks! so there's nothing I can do about it, it like one way that you have no choice than to take it, and you'd better be having those air conditioned transpo or else, you'll end up sweaty! ^_~

Oh yes, we know when it's going to be so busy on the roads that we avoid those times so we don't get caught up in the traffic. Nothing is worse than traveling and having to go through big cities during rush hour. UGH! Besides, being in traffic like that eats our gas like crazy so yeah, we do our best to avoid those times.

yeah traffic eats too much gas. but i don't travel by car. i travel by public vehicles in the philippines. it is some sort of passenger automobile, so it takes more time to get to my destination when it is traffic unlike private automobiles cause use shortcuts and other route to avoid traffic. but mostly the public vehicles can't do that often as they need to go through all the route they usually take for their passengers.

I know that trains can be busy from 7 to 9 in the morning and from 5 to 6 in the evening. It is called the rush hour because many commuters go to and from work. Train tickets are expensive before 9.30 in the morning if buying a day return. For a less busy day out I go at 09.30 and come back at 16.00 or out at 10.00 and come back at 19.00. On the roads there is no way to avoid traffic it seems. One of my friend got a burnt face and she wanted to hide from crowds of people. She drove to a supermarket that is open 24 a day at 2 in the morning. She saw very few people and she said that the roads were very quiet. She mastered avoiding traffic for sure.

you are so right that the light rail transit or trains do get busy during those time when people need to get to work early and at the afternoon when they need to get back home and usually the queue are so long like they are in a very long loop. like a snake like queue because of such many people in queue at the same time. and the train are so crowded that you could hardly move with hitting any one. you could almost smell the every smell of the people beside you. that is why they have allocated a section exclusively for female passengers. so that they will not have to be in such crowded train with men where they are taken advantage of sometimes as some men do take advantage of such situation. Some men will intentionally bump into women's body. Women can't sometimes tell which was intentional and which was just a result of too much people pushing around other people cause they could hardly move.
