Hello everyone! I'm Alexandr and I'm from Russia.
My favourite transport is a my car.
Usually I get to work by the my car also.
There is a special form of transport for tourists such as the red double-decker buses in my city.
I have never ridden on the big red buses in London, because I have never been in London.
I invite you to St. Petersburg. See you soon.

Hi Alexandr I m sure your city is one of the most beitiful on the word. I would like to go there. Hope I will in future. I like London I visited the city few times couse I live in the Uk (actually)/ London is so busy and expensive to live. Remaind me Warsaw my home town. Regard from England when the rain is too often.

I saw a double-decker bus during my trip to Glasgow. Sitting on a seat on the second floor of the bus may be great, because you can get a better view of the landscape below. I sometimes take a train with such double-decker cars and have a seat on the second floor of such car. The view is great, actually.

Hello everyone,
according to this part of the video I'd like to talk about ways of transport in my country, Poland. We have well-developed public transport here, from buses and trams to even an underground (only in Warsaw). I usually go to work by car because I don't really have other options in my town. There are some suburban buses too but they can't get me to every destination I want. There are also trains in my country, but these are not as good as abroad. Railways need many improvements and changes, for sure, but they're still developing much.

,There are some suburban buses' I m affraid is not good word to use. Never heard suburban buses.

Yulia, I´m from México and I was in Spain too, ten years ago, I love traveling, is one of the best activity, Costa Rica and Guatemala are contries very friendly and wonderfull, I would like you to meet them some day.
best regards

Hello! I am happy to write to you again! I am from Russia. Unfortunately, I have never been to London. I hope that some day I wiil come to London! I was in Spain. It was Sevilla. There I traveled a red double - decer on the top deek right at the front. I like this transport. I live in town. My work is near my house. I usually walk to my work. A walk in the fresh air is wonderful, if there is no frost becouse I live in Siberia!

Hello guys.
In my country, the most common transport is motorbike. But, I don't have motorbike! I usuallly walk to university and I will get the bus if it's rain. The tourists come to my country do not always use the bus to travel around the city, but they can use the bus if they want. In addition, they usually hire the motorbike to go around. After hearing this poscard, I really want to ride on the red double-decker buses in London once. Hope these days in the future!

hello every one
we have some transportation in our city like cars, buses and taxi
we can't ride a bike for transport because the nature of the city, it has so many mountain and also we can't walk for along time.

when I was in the university I was taking the bus, my university was in another city it took about 45 min to get there
