This essay will focus on some of advantages and disadvantages of public transportation.
First of all, I’d like to talk about advantages of public transportation. Using public transportation can reduce the number of people who drive their own car. It can ease traffic jam and improve road condition.
We can also reduce air pollution by using public transportation. Public transportation can accommodate a lot of people and send them various destinations. It leads to the reduction of harmful emission gasses such as carbon dioxide.
On the other hand, we have some disadvantages associated with public transportation. Using an automobile is more accessible than public transportation when we live in countryside. In most cases, there are few busses, trains and taxes in there. It’s very inconvenient for local people.
If they have their own cars, they can drive anytime and anywhere.
What’s more, it’s tough for elderly people to use public transportation. They have to go up and down the stairs when they use public transportation. There are many stations which don’t have elevators or escalators in Japan.
In my opinion, I can’t live without public train because I can get to the office in time. At any rate, public transportation is essential for our daily life.
Travelling by public transport is now very helpful and interesting. It is not only for the benefits of individuals but also for the benefits of the whole society.
Travelling by public transport are very useful in saving money. You do not need to spend much money on purchasing your cars while transport charges are rather cheap. With the money you can do much more things interesting, for example buying new clothes, buying more books or helping orphan children or contributing to protecting our environment or investing in your own business.
In addition, travelling by public transport also has its own interests. Imagine that you are in a bus , take a seat and start to relax by reading newspaper or sleeping a little bit. It is much more convenient than concentrating your mind on the road to avoid accident.
You might argue that the car can take you everywhere in the countries and public transport is not as convenient .But it was long ago. Now, it is much easier for you to travel by public transport especially by train.
Most importantly, travelling by public transport can help reduce the environmental pollution. Our environment is deteriorating with every passing day But nowadays, you are breathing in the air that full of dust and carbon dioxide and many exotic chemicals that can suffocate our life. According to statistics many people now are suffering the diseases related to respiration system. The situation is more and more dangerous now when much more people in developing countries are using cheap motorbikes which can exhaust out many exotic chemical. It is time you using the public transport to reduce air pollution
Imagine how much you can do by using public transport. Instead of using a car you can get on a public bus. And if twenty people get on the bus we can reduce the smoke from twenty cars. Though the bus also can exhaust smoke but the smoke exhausted by one bus is much less than that of the twenty cars. Moreover, this also prevent traffic jam because the room a bus take is much less than twenty cars .we will not wait for more than one hour in line to get to office in the environment full of dust and smoke. In case of underground buses, using public transport is very helpful in dealing with traffic jam. That is terrible in an industrial society when time is very precious.
