۱٫ Do you travel by public transport?
Yes, I do. Every morning I take a bus to my office. There are air-conditioned and non-air conditioned buses plying in the city. I prefer to take the air-conditioned bus, though it is costlier.
۲٫ When was the last time you travelled by public transport?
It was last Friday when I had to go to the office. Like I said before, I took the air-conditioned bus, and the ride was comfortable.
۳٫ What don’t you like about public transport?
The AC buses are less frequent. If you miss one, you have to wait nearly 10 minutes for the next one to arrive. In the evenings, when you are worn out and want to go home soon, it tests your temper.
۴٫ Would you prefer to use public transport in the future?
No. I want to use my vehicle. Considering the traffic in the city, I would prefer a two-wheeler rather than a four-wheeler.
