I mostly like The Tehran Underground.it's the most quicker one,and,I like it because there you'll always see some people who sell different variety of stuffs!although I almost never buy anything from the underground sellers,it's really good because it makes me feel the direction shorter,in spite of the length of journey and my tiredness at the end of day.

and I'd like to say I love you Tess!you're really skilled in saying unexpected things to Ravi "you're still a kid,Ravi!!!"

naturally,I really like buying clothes in crowded places.especially when they're cheaper in sales and I shouldn't worry about the prices.

my favorite transportation is my own car. i prefer to commute by the car. Because its a time saving. And also by the car i can remain with myself for some time rather then to listen others conversation in the buses and Auto.

pls can you tell me why we use in for car, taxi and plan and on for bus

Hello vandana7297,

I'm afraid this is one of those things that has grown up through use without any particular reason. It is a collocation which you simply have to remember.

Best wishes,

What is your favourite transport? My first choice is definitely private car because it saves waiting time and more flexible to travel wherever I want to go. How do you get to work or school or university? I go to work by bus l. Is there a special form of transport that tourists use in your country, like the Routemaster buses in London? not really. Have you ever ridden on the big red buses in London? never ever. I would love to though.

I am living in india. And in my country most commen transport is local buses, auto rickshaw and metro train. And in metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai for the tourists, tourist buses also is there.
