The advantages of using public transport

There are a lot of factors which need to be taken into consideration while selecting between public transport and private cars. Infact this has been a topic of debate for a long time now as there are both advantages and disadvantages on both sides. Traveling to our workplace or dropping of kids to school by our own private cars is indeed comfortable as all we got to do is sit back relax and enjoy the drive. But is it really so?

Well there may be situations wherein traveling to far off places or lack of public transport in scarcely populated areas make us depend on private transport as we are left with no other way.

Then there are those who find it convenient using the car pool system – wherein a neighbor or colleague heading to the same place is picked instead of the person have to drive the same distance in a separate car. This in turn reduces the emission of carbon dioxide in the environment.

Besides with petrol prices soaring by the day, it is not feasible to travel by private cars and is one reason an increasing number of people tend to opt for public or alternative means of transport.

If we are to compare between the two, we would all agree that public transport is not just faster but far cheaper and can even be more enjoyable; viewing the fact that driving during peak hours amidst traffic jams can get quite annoying. One can even sit back an enjoy reading a book or listen to some cool music and of course many a times there are those who even enjoy a good nap while traveling in public transport. And one can rather enjoy a cool drive in one’s own private car to a place where the drive can be enjoyed. The only problem being not all of us are fortunate enough to have train stations and bus stops nearby, thus making it difficult for us to rely on public transport.
