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.

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 :)

HI richimejia1986, I expect you will can visit London one day because it is a amazing city with interesting things to do and to see around I loved it. I dont know if one day I will return to visit London, because now, everything is so expensive!!! I need five reals (money in Brazil) to buy a libra esterlina :-(

I hope I can be able to do it some day jiji do you have w h a t s a p p?

I mostly like The Tehran'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
