    Do you take public transportation?

    Hello,

    It's a beautiful Saturday !

    Do you ever take public transportation?

    I do not have a car at the moment. Therefore , I have to use the bus. I used to use the bus almost everyday , even on the weekends. No I am not currently ins school because I graduated and I am now transferring. So , lately I have been using my bike to get around.

    What about you ? How often ?

    Good Saturday!!!

    I do not take public transportation anymore, and when I did I didn't take it very often because the bus would literally take almost an hour to get to the stop, it was dirty, and sometimes their would be people who were just simply inconsiderate. So my mom would take us to school and now my dad thankfully got me a car.

    Have a great weekend!

    Hey Julia!

    I do take public transportation. I take the train to school most weekdays. It's nice not to worry about parking!

    Have a good one!

    I don't take public transportation because I feel more secure if I'm going to wherever I'm going with my own transportation. I don't want to have to deal with the bus constantly stopping to allow people to board.

    Hi Julia,

    I don't have a car either so I have to use the bus yo go to school on the weekdays. On the weekend, if I'm going shopping for grocery or for clothes, I would go with my mom who has a car. I don't have a licence either and I don't know when I'm going to get it but I hope I get it soon when I'm ready to face the fear of driving.

    Thanks for the forum and have a great day!

    The only times I have used public transportation was when we were in DC and Chicago on vacation. It was actually a pleasant experience each time. I especially enjoyed that my parents didn't have to worry about parking, and you can certainly see the sights better if you don't have to watch the road!

    I am not opposed to using public transportation (at this point) if I ever need it for commuting in the future.

    hi animal lover,
    i used to bike everywhere but a few crashes can really make you squeamish about biking again. so its the bus for now. i take the bus all the time and am looking forward to the new public rail system going in. also cant wait for the driverless cars to take over the roads. it'll take me door to door and i wont ever have to look for parking again!

    Hi Julia,

    I have taken public transportation before, but I don't often. I live in Charlotte and although we have a light rail, it's not as expansive as it is in other cities. You can't get where you need to go always by taking our little train.

    However, I do use Uber and Lyft as needed. Both are really popular options in my area and especially if I'm going to an event in the city, I take Uber or Lyft because it's so much more convenient. It's reasonably priced, it's safe, and you don't have to deal with parking.

    Thanks for the forum!

    Re: Do you take public transportation?

    Yes! I don't have a car either -- mostly because I live in a city with mad traffic and the fastest way around is the subway. Also I got into a car wreck when I was younger and have been unable to drive since then :(

    Re: Do you take public transportation?

    Hello CNET!

    I take the subway 4-5 days per week. I commute to school, work, shopping centres, etc living in Arlington, VA. My destinations are usually near the Metro stops so the restaurants, malls, and movie theatres are within walking distance from the Metro. I sometimes take Uber, which is far more expensive than Metro when I need to go to the airport outside of subway opening hours.

    Re: Do you take public transportation?

    Where I live it is not the SAFEST to use public transportation, nor is it available everywhere. I live in a big city, but not quite the type of city that has subways, trains, metro, etc.... I am 18 and without a car so working and going out and about is hard. I find myself catching rides from friends, or Ubering. I try to keep within the area if I am not with someone who s driving so that the cost is not ever too too too much!

    Re: Do you take public transportation?

    Hey! I don’t use public transportation right now, but this upcoming fall I’m going out of state for college so I’ll probably have to use public transportation!

    Re: Do you take public transportation?

    Only in big cities!
