In the capital of Iran, Tehran city, because of trafic congestion and increasing of gasolin in the last years, the main part of population move toward using public transpoertion particularly metro and BRT. But in the other cities like Yazd city, people uses car mainly.

The second thing that I would like to speak about it is that historical cities of Iran was very copact and walk-oriented.
Peoply mainly did not need any vehicle for daily commute.

Here in my country the more famous is the Bus! But I prefer more to go walking where I go.

I live in Moscow. I usually get to work on the metro. It is my favourite mean of transport, because firstly, it is convenient, secondly, you can get to the other part of the city very fast. The Moscow metro is the most beautiful metro in the world.
Best wishes,

My favorite transport is the train, because you can relax and enjoy the ride . In Mexico there is not this medium , but in other countries it is common to use.
I think the bus and the car are practical but are not designed for comfort on long journeys.

Best wishes

Hello, my name is Stella, i'm from Brazil. I visited London in August, 2011 and i walked by doubledecker bus, i loved to walk in the upstairs seat and saw the city in this point of view, amazing especially in summer.
About form of transportation I like and I used to arrive in the job by car but i would prefer to live close to my job so I will arrive there walking and this way I could better enjoy the time and make more moves during the day because i work sitting all day long and it is not healthy i think.
In city that i live, Curitiba- Brasil, there are double decker buses just for tourists

wow you are very lucky by visiting London in 2011 wow! I expect to visit there once in my life :)
