It is said that using public transportation reduces pollution and traffic congestion. I completely agree with this statement in view of its advantages as following:
First of all, the public vehicle is friendly – environmentally means of transport. By using public transport, you’ll be able to cut back on greenhouse gas emissions by more than half. Research has proved that only three to eight people on a public transport bus are able to cut emissions by half compared to individual commuting in a personal car by himself or herself. Besides, some kinds of public vehicles use friendly energy to the environment such as electricity, biological energy, and so on. Using this transport can save 80 percent fuel compared to a means of private transport.
On top of that, public transportation is the best choice for reducing congestion. Public transportation can convey many more people in much less space than individual automobiles, which helps to keep traffic congestion lower, which in turn reduces air pollution from idling vehicles. Recent research indicated that a full carriage bus in a public transport system is equivalent to about 55 cars on the road with one occupant. As an illustration, in Singapore, the government encourages citizens to use buses; therefore, Singapore becomes one of the cleanest countries in the world.
In short, public transport brings us positive points of reducing pollution and traffic jam. Therefore, it is advisable that everyone should use this vehicle to go to work or school.
