Public transportation is a system of transport that is used by the general public. While there are a wide variety of public transportation systems available in various regions, one thing that they all have in common is that passengers will not ride in their own vehicles. When most people think of public transporation services, they think of subway trains or buses. While these are quite prominent in many cities, public transportation also consists of things such as planes or taxicabs. While many people have the option of either driving their own vehicles or using public transportation systems in the US, public transportation has become the preferred method of travel in places such as Tokyo and London.
A common carrier will generally be responsible for the regulation of this method of travel. The vast majority of people who use public transportation services are commuting between either their homes, shopping centers, or their places of employment. Public transportation systems are an important method of travel in many developing countries, and while a large segment of people living in developed countries choose to drive their own vehicles, the increase in gas prices has prompted many people in these nations to begin using public transportation systems. Perhaps the biggest advantage to public transportation is cost. It is possible to save hundreds or even thousands of dollars each year by riding a bus or subway as opposed to driving a vehicle. The primary disadvantage to using public transporation is that an individual is limited in where they travel, and they must be ready to depart at the scheduled time.
