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.

I like going to school by bike because it's friendly-environmentally. You can go everywhere you want, it's free. Riding a bike also helps to reduce the pollution and make the air fresher.

My favorite transport is bus and i like to travel on them frequently. When i was in college I used to travel in mini car to go to the college and during university life I prefer to travel in local buses mostly. Now i am doing job and mostly travel by Laguna which is not familiar in urban side.In our country tourists mostly travel in cars because the tourist places are very far from each other and lots of traffic jam in cities. So people prefer to travel in AC cars so that they can enjoy a cool refreshing feeling while sitting idle in a hot sunny day traffic jam.

I've been in Ho Chi Minh for 4 years. And till now, I think the infrastruture, worseing. There're too much motorbike, but the pubic transports, like buses are not focused to developt. I'm sure you will get sick if you want to ride in HCM in the Rush Hour.

I live in Ho Chi Minh City Which has a lot of motorbike, the traffic is usually jam on rush hours. I like to drive a car and get members of my family to travel, but car price in Vietnam has more expensive than other country. I can't have money to buy it, addition the car isn't compatibility with traffic of HCM City. I hope my city could improve traffic systems by public vehicle.
Sincerely!

Hello everyone.
My favorite type of transport is by train,but unfortunately I can't travel with it very often.In my city people travel by bus, tram and underground and for those who want to make effort with own body, they can cycling, we have a good tracks for bicycles. Here in Bucharest also we have double-decker bus for tourists. It doesn't have a name but I can describe it, it's white with two levels and the level two doesn't have the roof. That it for people who wants to see better the sightseeing. And people frequently hire bicycles in the city most of them are tourists.
I work close to my home so I get to work by walk even it's raining or snowing because it gets only ten minutes door to door.
When I was in London I had chance to travel on the red buses, the famous Routemaster. And of course my favorite seat was the second level in front just above the driver. From that place I have seen very well all the sightseeing in London. I had a love journey on this buss I took a lot of pictures it was lovely

I like walking by my town and I travel by bus for the long distance. I pay two pounds for the my return ticket to local transport service provider. There are not traffic jam because it is a small town. When I visit London I like to travel on the red double-decker bus. I'd like to take a seat at upstairs for the sightseeing. Thanks for your support,
George
