Do you ever catch a bus?

Would you prefer going by bus or by train if you have a choice?

Every Single Time.
I catch a bus every day for work and have no problem with that, but for something like travelling through Europe, then definitely would prefer a train.
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 catch both, and trams as well :)

I love that unlike driving you can read a book or play a game on public transport. Plus you can send text messages with no danger of a fine :)
I would much rather catch the train. It's a much nicer route (going past beaches) and is far quicker.

Unfortunately the train also seems to attract a certain crowd - so I try and catch it during daylight hours only.
I prefer trains to buses, they're bigger and travel faster and are much more predictable than a bus.
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.
Yes, I do! As a student with no license, they are my only mode of transport when getting to uni/work. I would rather have my own bike, but that might happen later down the track :-)
oh No Xarah, too dangerous!

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....

All public transports are convenient for me.
Train - but there's a station at the end of our street, so that's why. Buses are slower and more of a hassle...
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 would much rather go by train.
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).
Absolutely HATE bus travel, unless on a Tour of some description!

When working, I drove 7 Klms to train station. Did this for 39 years! Loved travelling by the train. Fast, easy, on time probably 95%. Reasonable cost for journey.

Only have to travel a few times' a year now. Do miss the relaxation of just sitting there, in my own little world, listening to my fav music or reading.
If i've going out or we go out, & we don;t have to take the car, we do have to catch a bus, (1 bus service an hr, & none on Sundays) & then we have to catch a train to wherever we're going too.
