  • I actually like traveling by bus if it means I don't have to drive in heavy traffic. Trains would be excellent but there is no train system around here. I don't really like plane but I don't despise them-- I'll use them.

    My verdict: I'd rather use a car if it means I don't have to drive. If I would have to drive, I'd rather use a bike if it is close and a bus if it is applicable.

    Austin has a pretty good bus system (they're everywhere 😱), and with my school ID I get free bus transportation. Very convenient.

  • The train is easiest: no check in, no long lines. And European HS trains get you there very fast. At least, there's space to walk around (seats are getting cramped too!)
    But since the Nov 16 terror attacks in Paris, I suppose there are check ins and luggage controls for HS trains too.

    Any trip under 200 mi I'll use the train. (Belgium thus)
    Airports offer some comfort, railway stations can be acceptable, the bus 'stations' I used are terrible.
    Buses are as expensive as a plane for long distances and often there's not even a toilet.

    • With all the traffic jams everywhere the car is a pita. We have one because some things are difficult without it , but to visit our son and granddaughter at 30 miles from here, we'll take a train.

    • No bathroom on those buses? Ugh, no, thank you! That's necessary, haha.

    • necessary, indeed. Only some (expensive) luxury touring touring buses have it. On the other ones, you have to wait till the next bus stop. :-p
      The old Greyhound coaches in the US didn't have it either (I rode in those derelicts in Mexico)

  • Given my hobby... by plane :D
    From time to time I also like to take a boat, the nicest holiday I've done was a cruise to Norway - all the famous fjords up to the North Cape.
    But I'm guilty of doing most everyday trips by car. Public transport is not bad in Belgium apart from the 20 strikes a year :-(

    • High speed trains, indeed!

    • I haven't too much experience with trains in general, but I'd like to take a trip with one. :)

    • I understand and speaking about trains, yes I have travelled many times in trains before, but I have never travelled in a high speed train, I mean train travelling over 500 kph, never!. In my country there are no such trains, at least as of now, in future who knows it may come!.

      Hence I haven't experienced travelling in high speed trains!, but in general I have travelled in trains before.

  • I would travel by:

    Plane, or

    • You need to get your pilot's license and fly one of those old time planes.

    • Heh, we can only wish. However, i can fortunately fly the planes wherever i please and save the pretty girl from the Hun whenever i want; that is, in the idles of my mind.

    • Imagination is a beautiful thing!

  • It all depends on were I, m going if it's warm out and I'm going somewhere I'm town ill take a motor cycle, if it with in 1200 miles ill drive. I have never had a reason so to travel any further than that. The reason why I would drive is I like to stop and see new things well I travel

    • Yeah, my father liked to drive for all of our family vacations, even those that had destinations 14-15 hours away. It was nice to take in the sights as the car passed by.

  • Depends on how far or where I am going! I would choose car though because I love rocking out on a road trip!

    • It was intended to be funny lol

      What's the point of a car if you can't afford to drive it? Am I right?

    • You've got it. The car is my typical mode of transportation. It gets expensive.

    • Haha, that image.

    • Yeah :) I figured having a pic with an American bald eagle flying would symbolize an airplane even though you can't land planes in a garage, lol. I figured this would be more acurate to driving a car.

  • What about Tramway, Trolleybus, Boat, Submarine, Spaceship? :P
    Anyway, I prefer Trains :D

    • Typically, my go-to is the car as well. I've only been on one round-trip flight. It wasn't too bad. :) I definitely agree with not wanting to be surrounded by a bunch of others with trains or buses, though.

    • Who said I have to go to the US? Why don't you come to Europe? ;)

    • This is an excellent point. I've wanted to visit for a while. I need money, though, haha.

  • Hard to choose between train and plane because they're both cool but I've never been on either. Probably train, being less commonly seen.

  • Plane

    Because I can read a cosy book

    And its quite of a peaceful time for me there

    I get to relax during that time

    But I don't know what to say more

    That isn't all

    I also have good memories associated to it

    I used to travel a lot to have violin classes with this great teacher

    fond memories for me

    1. Car
    2. Train
    3. Plane

    However I do the majority of my long distance traveling in planes because it's most practical. I just take naps in air to kill time cause it's boring af

    • Yeah, you save a lot of time by taking a plane, though I love road trips to see the different sights. :) Car is my go-to as well! I can't say I've been on many trains. I've taken the subway a couple times while in NYC.

    • I've yet to travel very far in a train, typically it's just a 4 hour trip to Chicago. But I really want to take a trip from here all the way to the west coast one of these days via train.

      I feel like it'd be very pretty and interesting!

    • It does sound fun and relaxing to take a trip by train like that! You don't have to worry about road rage, as expensive of tickets, etc... I'm not sure how impatient I'd get, though. Haha.
