I think this is a great way of going to school or to the shops. I use it all the time. This is a cheap way of travelling as the ticket is not very expensive, and you can use it in cities or for longer distances. I’ve always travelled to school and as far as I know, many of my classmates do the same. It’s true that sometimes you have to wait a long time, but I don’t mind that. And sometimes there are lots of people, it’s a bit crowded, but I don’t think that’s a big problem. The most unpleasant thing is to get stuck in a traffic jam, because then you never know when you get to school.
I like this method because it’s a good way of keeping fit, and it’s fast. I’ve done it for about a year now. I don’t mean winter of course. When the weather is bad, I sometimes take the bus, but I try not to. And most important — I don’t care about big traffic jams. I can go through the park, and take the shortest way, so it’s usually quicker. I carry my books in a basket on the front. The main problem is that I have to leave it at school, and sometimes I worry that someone is going to take it. It’s not very nice when someone steals it, is it?
I usually go to school this way, because I live a long way from school, and it’s a very difficult journey by bus. You have to change buses twice and it takes ages. I’ve tried cycling but I get very tired when I get to school. Besides, I can’t do that in winter. So my dad usually takes me. We talk on the way, or I check my homework. Going to school is fine, but I sometimes have problems coming home. I often have to wait for my dad, but it’s still quicker than by bus.
I think this way of travelling is fun. I don’t live very far from school, so I can travel this way along the pavement. It’s true, some people don’t like this. They think it’s dangerous, and they say that pavements are for walking. Sometimes they shout at me. I don’t agree with them, of course. I think this is a modern way of travelling short distances for kids. It’s better than a bike too. When it rains, or you feel tired, you can hang it over your shoulder and walk.
This is the best kind of transport for such a big city. I’m lucky to live not far from the station, I just have to walk five minutes. And the moment I get in, I care neither about the weather nor about the traffic. Of course, it can be a bit crowded in rush hours, but otherwise it’s very comfortable. It’s cool in hot weather and warm in cold weather. But most important, it’s the quickest way. I just can’t imagine city life without it.
