    Favorite mode of transportation?

    Hello Everyone!

    Because I will be traveling today, I am going to stick to my transportation theme from yesterday.

    So, What is your favorite mode of transportation? Train, plane, car, bike, taxi, something else? Are there any modes of transport that you will not use? Are there any modes that you use much more than any other?

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    I would have to say car would be my best way of transportation. I do not drive , but this is the most comfortable form of transportation to me. When going to other countries of course I prefer planes, but to a certain extent. I like the fact that planes are able to expedite the delivery the preparation and the lines do dampen the excitement. At least with driving you are in your space, shared with those you choose, and you are able to stop and take breaks when needed; even a rest stop is convenient.

    Good morning!

    Car is definitely my most used mode of transportation and I guess it would be my favorite. But I also like the feeling of riding the train sometimes. It's just really interesting a day you never know what people you will meet on the train. I remember one time I was on the train and there was this guy who had a puppet and he wounderstands perform his puppet act on the train a day everyone liked it and he Nader us all laugh. I love seeing acts on the train! I also think I would love riding in a plane but I have never been on one but I would like to!

    Hi Ashley,

    Traveling is one of my best hobbies although I am an unable to travel as much as I would like. I have traveled using almost every mode of transportation available. I prefer traveling by plane as it is alot quicker. I love traveling by car and train as well. There is so much to see :)

    My favorite mode of transportation is the car. Now that I'm driving on my own, it feels great to just hop onto your own car and go wherever you feel like so long as the distance is within reason. Planes would be my second favorite mode of transportation but at times I've had some unpleasant memories with planes. That's all I'll say about that.

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    Hi,

    For me - a car and a plane are my favorite transportation's.

    First of all, a car is absolutely necessary for me to travel around here in California. Driving to work and school, and doing other things are really important if you have a car. Here in LA everything is spread out and to go from one place to another it might take an hour to drive or even more than that. When I first came here, I was using public transportation and it was difficult to go to college on a bus for 2 hours one way. I would feel more tired to travel rather than sitting in a classroom. Even though, I told myself that I won’t be able to drive here in LA, because the rules and driving was so different from Europe, I still decided to get my driver’s license, conquered my fears and bought a car. It was one of the best decisions that I ever made!

    Secondly, plane is also one of the best transportation's in the world. Each year I have to travel by plane to visit my family, which is more than 6000 miles away. It’s amazing that I can get to my home within 24 hours. If I traveled by ship and then took a bus,, it would probably take around 2 weeks or more. Tomorrow I will be traveling to Baltimore from LA on a plane, which will only take around 5 hours. If I drove, it would probably take the whole week. It has made traveling way easier and it is the faster transportation in the world.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Everyone!

    I would have to say car and plane as well. For a car, I can just go into my car and take off where ever I want, I love being able to have that freedom....especially when gas is cheap. Planes are super relaxing to me for some reason, I always fall asleep..weirdest thing. I do love sitting in the window seat because I can see all the cities and sometimes mountains when we pass over certain states.

    Have a great day!

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    Yooooo

    Like the others, I prefer car. It's quick and easy, it's not that many people to fit, and you don't have to worry about paying for any tickets (well maybe driving ones).

    Have Tubular Tuesday!!!

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    My car is my only mode of transportation. I would love to be able to take my bike around, but work and school are just too far to do so. Plus in 120 degree weather I'll take the comfort of air conditioning in my car over a sweaty bike ride, by the time I reached my destination I would be so sweaty nobody would want to be near me! It would be nice in the winter though.

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    My most used method of transportation is driving, but it isn't my favorite. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that my parents let me use their old van as if it‘s my own. Having a car is so much easier compared to the times where I would have to take a bus to get everywhere, because my city has public transportation but it isnt very well developed or organized. Getting somewhere on a bus would take me two hours when it takes 25 minutes to drive there.

    So hands down, I am grateful for having a car. It just gets tiring sitting in traffic, and most of my friends dont have cars so I feel like a taxi at times. Im easy going so I dont mind it, but I only really enjoy the act of driving if I have an open road or an empty highway at night with my music up loud.

    I most enjoy taking the train when Im traveling, because I can sit back and put my headphones on and look out the window or doodle in a notebook. The 20 minute train ride from my house to the center of Philly has some nice urban scenery, a lot of abandoned buildings and graffiti, with the skyline in the background. Theres one section of trees along the tracks that someone spraypainted entirely pink - the bark and branches and ground, everything. I find it so enjoyable to sit back and take in the view while I listen to music. It destresses me!

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    Hi Ashley,
    Overall, I'd have to go with plane flight as my favorite. The first time I was on a plane, I was 6 weeks old, going from Bangkok, Thailand to Bremen, Germany. It's been all downhill from there. I love getting on a plane and a day later, you're halfway across the world, in a different culture. That's awesome in my book. I'm looking forward to taking a trip from Tucson, Arizona to Seattle, Washington in early August this year, to see my folks. August is rather nasty in Tucson, weather-wise and it'll be fun to see mom & dad too.

    As for ground transportation...give me a cab, please. While I don't mind taking a train or subway, I prefer cabs. You get to see more, get a chance to have a fun conversation with the driver and maybe learn a thing or two about the city. Some of the best tips I've gotten about where to go or hangout have come from the cabbies. So...planes and cabs please. Let's live it up!

    Mike.

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    I have seen the pros and cons of biking. I'm usually a biker on a good sunny day, especially when I'm in the mood to immerse in the nice weather. But nowadays I've seen how bad traffic gets around my neighborhood and don't want to take that risk on my bike especially because I don't even bike too well; I never know when is a good time to brake oops. Whenever I bike with my friend in front of me I usually end up almost crashing into them; so now they've learned and let me to take the lead whenever we go biking together.
    Nowadays I'm more dependent on cars as I often am short on time and just want to get to my destination quickly. But whenever I have a choice I will choose biking over cars. Any other kind of transportation I'm not exactly familiar with, like subways or trains. But I will take the bus if it comes down to be my last choice of transport. Although the bus fares add up quick so I tend to avoid this transportation method.

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    Hello Ashely!
    My favorite mode of transportation would probably be by car because it is the easiest and you save a lot of money that way too. There's not a transpiration that I will not take even though I have never been on a plane haha.
    Have a great day!

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    Car has always been my method of use especially daily. I like planes because it means I'm going to be traveling beyond my home. It kind of has a more exciting and emotional connection. I have never been on a train and I really want to. Boats are a favorite of mine as well, especially since where I'm from, Jacksonville, has boat taxis. it's unique since I hardly see that on the west coast.

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    Hello,

    I go to school in the city so I prefer walking when it is nice out to taking the train. Although one thing that I absolutely love is being able to just walk to the train and go anywhere in the city for a low price. I hate taxis, if I have to take one I'll get an Uber but that still is annoying.

    I don't really enjoy taking planes places because the whole process is just annoying, but if I need to travel somewhere I'll choose that over a 24+ hour drive.

    Best,
    Hannah

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    My favorite way of transportation is the car. I don't like to be surrounded by a lot of people. I love to hear the surround sound and fall asleep in the passengers seat. The car just makes me feel really comfortable.

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    If I'm on foot, I definitely would choose longboarding. I love the breeze I feel when I'm cruising down the streets, and the swirly feeling in my stomach when I go up and down hills. If I'm going a long distance then I'd probably choose a car. If I had a motorcycle and knew how to ride, I'd choose that over a car any day.

    But having a motorcycle means you can't listen to music while traveling, which is a deal-breaker for me.

    Re: Favorite mode of transportation?

    I would have to say train. I don't know how to drive yet so yeah. And i love the feel of the train especially when i go to NYC.
