I’m sure most, if not all, of us have had the chance of riding on a bus whether it was to school, to work or to town and have noticed that it can be both beneficial as well as disadvantageous to us.

Sure, travelling by bus does have its benefits. The main one is the fact that you save by not buying fuel for your private vehicle every day. Secondly, you are freed from the burden of finding a parking spot for your car. Moreover, by taking the bus you are partially contributing to the reduction of carbon monoxide in the air for a bus full of people causes less pollution than individual cars for each family would. However, taking buses can be time consuming because buses have to take the longest routes and halt at every bus stop. Furthermore, some passengers can be smelly or rude, and not at all pleasant to sit next to. Buses can also be dirty and noisy. Some bus stops don’t even provide shelter from the rain or a place to sit. But the main problem that we students face is the bus schedule. Many of us often miss the school bus because we need to stay after school for academic or extra-curricular activities.

So as you can see taking buses help us to economize and contribute to the environment but it can also be very uncomfortable and time-wasting for us. It can therefore has its gains but not as much as its drawbacks!
