Going by train or bus might result in a slightly longer ride, but you don’t have to drive, it’s much safer than taking your own car, and it’s better for yourself and the environment. Plus, taking public transportation lets you avoid all the hassles that come with driving your car everywhere you need to go everyday, like having to find and pay for parking, spend for fuel and vehicle maintenance, or deal with mean drivers in traffic. If the bus or train lines are not easily accessible for some reason, you can join a carpool, preferably with people who drive well. Carpooling has some of the same benefits of public transportation. You’ll save money, you won’t have to drive every day, and fewer cars on the road translates to safer driving conditions, fewer traffic jams, and more parking spaces for those who need them.
In the passage, “Public Transportation is the Way to Go” it discusses one 's opinion on it. It doesn’t give any cons to it, just all the pros. It says how this can save you money, save gas, take you places faster if you don’t have a vehicle, and allow you to do other things while on the bus/train; like reading, napping, playing on your electronic device, etc. There are pros and cons to this, of course like anything else in the world. The first reason why public transportation is good is that it will save you money.
” The time has come to stop making people pay to take public transit. Why do we have any barriers to using buses and urban trains?” (Olsen) If everyone can get from point A to point B whenever they must for free this creates the potential for great upward mobility. This would reduce unemployment, as job opportunities could be searched for in a wider area for people without cars. “It would be good for everyone if transportation costs are reduced. Workers can get to more jobs, companies can choose from more workers and more suppliers, people can take more spur-of-the-moment road trips to outlet malls, etc.
Public transportation services are vital for civic life. Recently, many countries have turned their attention towards developing and improving their public transport Systems. This study is a public needs assessment and opinion of People. The study is innovative from both an approach and Implementation perspective and will help policy makers think about long-term strategies of transportation. Transport is a shared passenger transportation service which is available for use by the general public, as distinct from modes such as Taxicab and car pooling which are not shared by strangers without private
The ease of getting in and out of a vehicle (or ingress/egress) is one of the most important ergonomic issues for automotive manufacturers. It represents the first physical contact of a customer with a vehicle. Urban transport is quintessential to the usability of urbanites; enabling the carrying out of activities in their daily lives. Due to its public nature, it should be inclusive enough to cater to all the members in society of diverse ages, abilities and sizes. With special concerns on embarkation and disembarkation of bus, this research paper attempts to identify physical attributes of settings and devices that would not merely make provisions for access by the older persons who need facilitations but for other passengers as well.
The important is aspect of the transport system is that many the world is not yet using vehicles for transport of low incomes and rapidly growing economy. According to Public Transportation, even if it works for many people, it also contributes to a variety of problems, such as environmental pollution and traffic congestion. According to Gerike, R., (2014) congestion, pollution, traffic problems, and demands for sustainable transport practices have led to a renewed focus on the importance of public transportation in urban tourism development. So using the perceived quality, cost and attitudes can address this issue. In addition, it can have a positive impact on society and consumers so that they always take care and reduce traffic congestion or pollution.
Public transport is part of the national economic, energy and environmental challenges that help improve quality of life. More and more people are using public transport, and local communities are expanding public transport services. Social, personal, family, community and business sectors benefit from public transport.

We strongly believe that efficient, safe, and modern public transport can help answer these problems. An effective rail-based public transport plays an important role in
Five benefits will be discussed and these are: (1) Reduction of traffic congestion and time travel. Vehicle owners will have more time going to places where they want to go. Drivers of mass transportation like buses will be more likely to reach more destinations in one trip. (2) Transit benefits from both additional passengers and developing mechanisms. Meaning, owners of private vehicles will more likely to commute and use mass transportation vehicles because they will save energy in driving and money to fuel their cars.
Another positive point of public transport is the low emission of carbon dioxide compared to the emission of a normal car. The CO₂ emission in grams per passenger per km is 205 for a car compared to 186 per bus and 56 per rail (Future Travel, 2012). Stimulating people to use public transport will thereby help to further reduce air pollution. Cities can be designed to speed up public transport. Bikes have no pollution, but still a lot of cities in the world only focus on
