There are many types of transportations used to go to work or school in my country such as car, bus, taxi, motorcycle and bike. During these motorcycle is the most popular. Personally I go to work by motorcycle too. Buses are the next most used in my country, they are used widely by students because of cheap fare. I love red Double-decker buses in London. I never see them in real life but only on television. I wish someday I could visit London and traveled around city on a red double-decker bus.

Hi everyone!
In Italy (I live in Milan) I usually use the underground or the car.
But when I was in london, I enjoyed very much to get on the buses, especially the red double-decker buses. They're very originals and they allows to see aorund and to enjoy the panorama.
Next time I will get a routemaster: I never travelled on it.

In my country we have a various ways of travel to get to work, bus, subway or metro, taxi, bicycle, motorcycle and sometimes by foot if your work isn't far away from home. Personally I travel by motorcycle and for me is the best way you can move yourself through the city since there is lots of traffic and you can be stuck at least one hour and a half in your car or even in the metro. I have to go through the city from north to south and for me is better going by motorcycle, in addition, you can skip the traffic, you don't get stressed and don't spend much money in gasoline. XD

Hello Everyone ! This is a Good site in english ! I`ve watched all spisodes ,, but on my mobile phone I think the season number four is low ! it must be turned up

Hello Everyone!
Jamal from Sweden. My favorite transport is car but I always take a train to the school because it's easier to reach and more comfortable as eveyone know that.

Hi Everyone!
I'm from Vietnam. My favorite transport is motobike whichwas my gift birthday from my parents. i have been using it for 3 years when i went to school or office.

I like to go to work by a cycle and I usually ride it as my office is not far from my home. When l was a student I usually travelled by public bus to reach my College.

hi i like to go to my work walk on the feet because my work is near from me and my favourite transport is my car ..in my city damascus we have single -decker buses and we use it to moved in the city

When I have a business trip I prefer travel on plane especially in long distances, we arrive quickly,
During peak hours in the morning I usually go to work by taxi because there is a lot of traffic and I try to not be late, I go back by bus it’s a little slow but more cheap than other means of transport.
Most of tourists use buses to move between long distance points when they can take photos and see attractive places easier than car and walk in the city center.
I have never traveled to the UK, but I have watched this form of transport on TV (routemaster) and I really like it especially the double-decker bus…. It’s really typically British.

In Vietnam, motorbike is a very common vehicle because it has small size and is easy to control. Traveling by motorbike helps ease heavy traffic and moreover people can drive on narrow or busy streets.
