What kind of public transportation is popular in China?
As far as I know, buses and subway trains are very popular in China, especially in developed cities. Like most other cities in the world, they are the best ways for you to get around the city. And the fare for buses and subway trains is also very affordable, which is the main reason why people like taking them. Plus, the bus and subway networks usually cover the whole urban area. Even you want to go somewhere across the city, you might only have to take one or two transfers. That’s very convenient.
What are the problems caused by increasing vehicles?
There are definitely lots of problems caused by an increasing amount of vehicles. The first one I can think of is traffic congestion. It’s such a pain when you’re on your way to work, but you end up late because of all the traffic. Sometimes it just takes one car to result in a jam. A lot of vehicles also means a lot of pollution. The fumes aren’t good for the environment at all.
What do you think needs to be improved in public transport?
Well, one thing that needs to be improved with public transportation is speed. Even in big cities, you can end up waiting for ages because your bus isn’t on time. So people should work on improving the system to avoid delays. It’s a real pain when you have to just sit around waiting for a bus or a subway. It would also be really nice if buses and subways could come around more often.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of public transport?
One big advantage is the cost. It s usually way cheaper to take public transportation compared to driving your own car. Besides, when you consider parking, public transportation is definitely a less stressful alternative . Another advantage is that it’s more environmentally friendly than private transportation. It cuts down on carbon emissions. But on the downside, public transportation can take way longer. Plus, you have to share the space with other people, and they can be rude sometimes.
How do you think the subway system will develop in the future?
I don’t see it changing that much, since the design is tried and true and it’s been working pretty well so far. If anything, I think that subways will just become faster and more tech-friendly. For example, some subway systems could have Wi-Fi available all the time, or even outlets for people to charge their devices. Maybe some of them could use different kinds of energy in the future.
Who takes public transportation more often, young people or old people?
I suppose that young people take public transportation more often. For one, not all young people have a license. Some younger teenagers might not be able to drive themselves. Plus, those who do have licenses might not have their own vehicle. So you can see tons of young people taking public transportation. As for old people in China, they’re often worried about traffic safety322 and don’t like going too far from their home. So they prefer walking to places near their home and rarely take public transportation.
