@Toto-Wow they have that? Damn I don't think our bus system can afford that D; (Lucky = 3= ours are all busted and the newest technology is that the stupid stop requested thing talks Lol)

@mu2020-I know :-D do the same thing and if I'm late for something and couldn't get ready fast enough and I look raw I can do my makeup on the bus xD

@Random42-Lol sounds like "meh I take whatever I can to get where I want" basically :-D

@cutiefee- That sucks D: I've never rode a train before x3 (Is it fun? : o)

@tactics- Why is it free for you to get on? : o
D: Lucky i've never been on a tube (is it fun? Lol)

@ShadowSakura- Nice : D
D: And why? Lol?

I use the bus all the time since cars are ridiculous expensive( 180% registration tax), and its more convenient since the bus stop is 30m from my front door and the buses go every 3-5 minutes in the mornings and it only cost 60$ for a monthly bus pass which they send by mail.

It's free because of the education system. Certain ages and types of education either gets you discounts or it's free.
It's not free on the tubes though. Just cheap in comparison to adult price.

No the tubes are not fun. Maybe they might seem interesting if it's your first time but I've been using it for years so it's not fun at all. The mornings are terrible. So jam packed with everyone trying to get into work. The only time people will allow others to invade their personal space laugh

It's my only means of getting to college, and anywhere outside of my town. I don't really mind the actual bus itself, but I absolutely detest the drivers. I'm nearly certain they all had to pass an 'Arrogant Prick' test before getting the job. That said, I have met some nice ones.

You know, I've long considered creating a comic dedicated to things that have happened to me on the bus...

I have to take a bus to get anywhere. I can't say I like it because it's often very crowded and sometimes I am literally pressed to the window. But usually I don't mind it - as long as there are no perverts or pickpockets around :/

Probably yes, it would be fun. Fun getting lost as well. It's one gigantic underground maze basically. It's ok for me because I'm used to it but I've had many people ask me how to get to certain places because they're so confused laugh

I've rode school buses before (4 years ago...) I want to try riding a metro bus, subway, or a train...

I like the bus (and public transportation in general) I've traveled to work for years with bus and train, and when our car broke down, we didn't buy a new one, now we just carshare for the two or three times a month when we need a car. We use bikes, busses, trains and trams to go to work and school. I've never driven a car to work yet. I've lived in the Netherlands, Switzerland and China. Only in Hawai'i we felt that we couldn't do without a car.

I love reading or sleeping in the bus, both of which are not recommended while driving.

I avoid public transportation as much as I can. I'd rather walk. When the distance is really too big, I take the tramway (? I don't know if the word changes in english) to get closer to my destination, but I still keep a good distance for me to walk.
I don't really like the bus, and don't have fond memories of the subway. There are some crazy people in there.

I *love* our local bus service - free to ride (for everyone), nice drivers, clean buses, BUT only comes every half hour and there are only two routes (intersecting loops) so where you can go is pretty limited.

My town is pretty small & we can walk just about everywhere, so unless it's something where time is tight or the weather's really nasty or I need to transport a large volume of stuff (groceries, for example) we try to walk or ride the bus as much as possible. I have a car, but don't especially like driving, and gas is expensive.

I've used the tube in London independently (3 months) & loved it; the buses were good too but I like trains better. I've also used the trains & subways in New Jersey & New York City, but only with my sister as my guide - definitely not as safe-feeling as London.

School buses are not the same as regular public transportation - any time you cram a bunch of kids into a confined area with minimal supervision, it's not going to be a good thing. dead
