Planes, trains, automobiles, tramways, bikes, metros, buses... Flying saucer?
What mean of transportation do you prefer?
Which ones do you use the most?
Any inconveniences that make you despise one of them?

I mostly use the train between cities and the tramways/metros in cities.
I use my feets the rest of the time, sometimes I drive when there is no more simple alternative.

I truly like walking if I have the time, because you can have a look to the world around you, otherwise train. Especially if they're on time :D. The main problem with trains is the cost, it's often cheaper to take the plane :what:. I personaly use planes to go to very distant places, for the reason you have to wait one hour to enter an airport, and another to get out of it.

What mean of transportation do you prefer? I like taking the train to places. I also like being driven in cars, but my parents don't/rarely drive so it's not very often for me.

Which ones do you use the most? I use the bus 10 times a week so that is definitely the most frequent.

Any inconveniences that make you despise one of them? I've always been scared of flying, I don't really know where it stemmed from but just the thought makes me shiver. On an unrelated note, last year at the airport we were delayed 8 hrs and it was a massive inconvenience for me. I always now avoid using that airline where possible.

What mean of transportation do you prefer? I like being driven in cars and walking. I love the water so I would probably enjoy boat too, although I've never been on one.

Which ones do you use the most? I'm driven by others more than anything.

Any inconveniences that make you despise one of them? Our local buses are very rickety so I'd rather have someone drive me when I go somewhere. Much more comfortable.

I usually get driven by car, walk, or bike. I don't bike as often because I don't like having to carry it with me everywhere I go, but it's not enough of an inconvenience to stop me from riding it. Car will probably be my favorite once I get my license.

What mean of transportation do you prefer? MOTORCYCLE

Which ones do you use the most? MOTORCYCLE

Any inconveniences that make you despise one of them? Fuck riding in the rain, that shit sucks ass.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE riding me bicycle around the place! i ride about a marathon daily just going to school and back so i'm fairly certain it's my most common method of transport :p

only inconvenience is the weather- and i'm not talking rain (i love the rain! i'm going to end up wet from my sweat either way and it's very refrshing), but rather snow and ice that makes the road slippery and dangerous. i usually use public transport then.

I live most of my life in NYC so I walk and take the subway everywhere. And if for some reason I have to go another city I go to grand central and take a train to that city and then a public bus. So I guess all public transportation.

The only inconvenience is the $$ (going too fast for Pokemon Go)

I live in a rural area which means no public transport and walking takes way too long to be practical.
What mean of transportation do you prefer? Biking, automobiles
Which ones do you use the most? Biking, automobiles
Any inconveniences that make you despise one of them? Biking is still limited by range, often times I need to go 20+ miles to get what I need, which is not practical. Also, I live in a very hilly place so bikes are difficult at places.

Love my longboards

For me it is boats :) But for short distances I much prefer walking :)

What mean of transportation do you prefer? Tram
Which ones do you use the most? Tram, bus, car, walking
Any inconveniences that make you despise one of them? The buses sometimes get stuck in traffic but it's worth it when you consider that it's relatively cheap.

What mean of transportation do you prefer?
honestly i like my car. its comfortable for me and it just is how i've been raised, and it's the most convenient based on where i've lived mostly. however, i lived right around a city for the first time for my internship over the summer and i did become kind of fond of the metro and whatnot. still not as much for busses and whatnot, but i loved utilizing the subway to get around, instead of driving through a larger city and if i go back, i'll definitely continue to utilize it. i've amtraked a few times too and it is kind of fun to get to just sit back and let someone else take care of shit
Which ones do you use the most?
i drive at this point honestly. i do walk from place to place on campus and whatnot, but its not an urban area so we have to drive somehow to get around, and i commute to work and whatnot so at the current time, i'm a driver.

What mean of transportation do you prefer? I love cars. They're so quick and quiet. Everything that I want. Unfortunately though, my mum can't drive anymore since she had a stroke, my dad has never been able to drive, and my granddad can't anymore after he had a heart attack so I hardly ever have the chance to use a car.
Which ones do you use the most? I walk, like, everywhere, bro. The only time I get a bus is when I'm going to my nan and granddad's house or town.
Any inconveniences that make you despise one of them? I strongly dislike trains and I've never been on a plane but I don't much like the sound of doing that.

Since I can't drive a ,car or fly a plane my favorite means of transportation is my bike (or feet). I will get my drivers' license in 2 years, I hope. Then maybe my pilot license after that.

Other than my car, definitely a train... a great way to see the sights

Motorcycle always. One of my good friends has a bike and it's so great to ride on.

What mean of transportation do you prefer? The good old fashioned automobile works best in California, where 95% of our public transportation sucks.

Which ones do you use the most? I drive almost everywhere. If my friends or I are not driving, we usually use uber, or take the subway (BART) into the city.

Any inconveniences that make you despise one of them? Traffic sucks dick and guess who has to use the bay area's busiest freeway to get to work :- ). A 20-25 minute drive to work on quiet weekends turns into a 45 minute-1hr drive on weekdays. Also my car's transmission is on it's last legs which makes driving in stop and go traffic somewhat tedious. Still more convenient than the train, though, because there isn't a single train that aligns well with my work schedule.

if the weather is good then there's nothing better than walking or biking - either alone so I can think or with friends . i hate buses, I don't know why, they feel constraining. but I love trains of any kind.

October 25th, 2016, 09:29 PM
currently my favorite is my car/bus because it's fast but when i move to toronto for school, i know i love it already but the ttc (toronto transit commission) is fast i guess and gets me around the city

I have tried high speed train recently so for now that is my favourite.

May 24th, 2018, 04:04 PM
my road to school is long and empty, so biking is just so peaceful and enjoyable

i do want one of my dream cars when i can get a license, but for now ill love my biking

I like riding in a car, I got in big trouble the one time I took my big sister's car out for a drive with my friends inside but I still look forward to getting my license next year. I ride my bike a lot in nice weather, not in winter though. I also walk a lot, it's 4 miles to school so I can walk home in the afternoon if I want to, but I have to be driven there in the morning. I totally hate buses, trains and the like (except for the subway in Toronto which is awesome), and have never been on an airplane but don't think I would like it.

I prefer the metro. Fast and reliable most of the time. :)

I really prefer driving my car but I hate traffic and sometimes like the option of having a designated driver. I like driving around with my brother in his car, whether I ride shotgun or he lets me drive.
I take the Amtrak train a lot traveling from city to city and I have discovered trains are better than planes. I spent a year up in the air and got really used to flying frontier but I think that beats you up a lot especially after a while.
Greyhound buses are okay but good for the purpose of economic transportation.
I take the subway to get around town and I also walk around a lot since I don't have my car with me; it is in another state.
