1. Avoid Traffic Jams and Help Alleviate Them Yourself
As we have already mentioned – who would want to be stuck in a traffic jam when trams and buses in the Czech Republic have priority lanes and are therefore faster? Moreover, a recent study showed that 1 full public transport bus can replace up to 55 cars with one passenger! Ugh, just imagine the queue!
2. Help Reduce CO2 Emissions and Fossil Fuel Consumption
Travelling by train, bus, metro or tram greatly reduces dependence on fossil fuel supplies. By using public transport, you help reduce air pollution in and around the city you visit.
3. Contribute to Improving Life in the Given Area
Combine the two above recommendations... and not only you, but the locals will be happier too!
4. Extra Physical Activity
Moving to and from public transport stops will ensure a bit of that activity on your part. Do something for your health!
5. Meet with the Locals
Local people use public transport routinely. It's a place where different cultures mingle.
6. Public Transport Allows You to Relax
More time for yourself. When you take public transport, you can relax – read the news on the internet or a chapter of your book, have a chat or take a nap. But be careful not to miss your stop 😊
7. The Choice Is Yours!
Get to know the cities from different angles. You can opt for the bus, train, metro, tram or trolley. In Prague we even have a ferry and a cable car. Do you prefer views or speed? It's up to you.
