I cathc both however would far rather catch a train, as they are always on time, unless there is a technical fault, and do not get held up in traffic.
They are also a faster route in most cases in the City.
If it is a long journey I prefer the train. I also prefer the train if it is a sunny day, because the light shining through the window on a bus makes me feel sick. On the other hand, if I have lots of heavy shopping, then I like to catch the bus that stops just one street down from my house, so I don't have to carry it too far.
I don't drive, so I catch buses and trains all the time. Trains are sometimes quicker but I prefer buses if I'm travelling at night since you're where the driver can see you, not in a carriage with nobody official around. It doesn't much matter which I prefer though, since I don't really have a choice which I use. There are places I can only go to using one or the other, depending on whether they are on a train line or a bus route.
I prefer the train if I have to take public transport but not keen on either! Particularly don't like it in the Winter months cause you are exposed to a lot of germs....always prefer to take the car but going into town is easier on the train for me....
catch the bus and it's convenient. train travel is fantastic too so as long as it gets you where you need to go I think both are great. I think we take public transport for granted but shouldn't do as when you are in a city or country that has no public transport you realise what a great service it is. There is something about long distance train travel though. Its nostalgic, civilised and romantic. I wonder why?
I have always liked trains. The train station is nearby so I use the train a lot. I sometimes use a bus or a tram from the city. When travelling on a long trip interstate I would much rather travel by train. There is much more space for your legs and you can walk around. There is a cafe car too. I like to read or write while on the train.
I catch a bus to work everyday and prefer this over driving the car into work.
I can relax, finish figuring out the budget, play games on my phone or watch the scenery while someone else drives.
It is cheaper overall and less wear and tear on my car (which by the way only needs $10 to be filled up each week).
