Now the words ‘Public Transport’ aren’t something we use often, nor do we actually travel on it, but why?
The last time we remember using public transport is in London, the tube, as it’s definitely the way to go if your not on foot and an airplane is our obvious choice for those all important getaways. But for everyday travel, we don’t use it so much.
Take a look at these interesting stats we found recently (from DofT 2016)
Let’s look at some key advantages and disadvantages of each mode of transport:
Mode of Transport Pro’s
Mode of Transport Con’s
From our basic findings it’s clear to see the benefits of driving, such as convenience and practicality, far out way the other modes making it a far better choice for us, but maybe not for you.
What would make public transport more appealing for us?
Our general thoughts on this are not necessarily cheaper or more frequent as many bus routes local to use run every 10 minutes. Ideally for us journey planning would be made easier as trying to negotiate several small journeys to complete the big journey can be quite complicated.
We asked others what would make it better for them…
So, how do you get to work?..
