One of the big drawbacks of living in a city is the commuting, something I've basically done since highschool, on buses and trains. I truly hate rush hours and I can't stand the crowds, rudeness and stress of people. Be it in a train, bus or tailback.
But I think the public transportation system is a brilliant thing, from an environmental, cost effective and health point of view. I also think it's completely mind-boggling that there are still countries with a "healthy" budget that in this day and age do not have a decent infrastructure and well-built public transportation system.
Something I'm really grateful for these days is the fact that I rarely have to take my trains and buses during rush hours, it's so liberating! So those times, when I do have to commute, take the train, and it's practically empty from certain stations given the time of the day or evening, it's a simple bliss.
What kind of public transportation do you use regularly?
Is it enjoyable rides or just a case of "have to"?
