  雅思口语里交通状况的问题算是个老话题了,对于transport的话题应该怎样说才合适还是需要考虑一下。

  How did you come here today?

  Well, I took the train here to this city last night, and the hotel I booked is quite close, only 10 minutes’ walk from here, so I just came here on foot.

  Do you like traveling by bus?

  Well, not really, ‘cause the bus in my hometown is always crowded, especially during summer. We are jammed together like sardines in a can, you know. When I’m on the bus, I could smell the sweat of the person next to me, it’s just terrible.

  When was the first time you took a bus?

  Wow, that was a long time ago. As far as I could remember, it’s when I was in primary school. My school was not that far from my place, only 3 bus stops away, so every day I just took the bus to school.

  How often do you take buses?

  Well, basically every day. Although I don’t like to take the bus, ‘cause (like I said) it’s crowded and smelly sometimes, the bus fare is pretty reasonable. So in order to save money, I would take the bus every time I go out.

  Is it convenient to take buses in your city?

  Yeah, sure. My hometown is not that big, and the bus routes basically cover all parts of the city, no matter where you want to go, the bus can take you there. The distance between two stops is not that long. So you see, it’s quite convenient to get around by bus.

  Do you prefer taking buses or subway?

  Well, my hometown doesn't have a subway system, but I did take the subway in some other cities. They are more spacious than the bus, and they are equipped with air-conditioning. The best part is, there’s no traffic jam down there. So I definitely prefer the subway.

  Do people in your country take buses?

  Yeah, it’s a common means of transport in China, just like in other countries. During morning and evening rush hour, the buses are always full of people going to or back from work or school.

  In the future, do you think buses will still be popular?

  Yeah, I think so, especially when the environmental issues are becoming worse right now, you know, the global warming, the climate change and stuff. Taking the bus is a much greener way to travel. The government would encourage people to use public transport more often in the future.

  What is the most popular means of transport in your country?

  Well, that depends on the distance we are travelling. If we want to have a short trip, the train or the high-speed rail would be our first choice, ‘cause it’s convenient and affordable. And for long-distance trips, we tend to take the plane, ‘cause it’s timesaving.

  Is driving to work popular in your country?

  Yeah, it is. There are countless private cars running on the road every day, and I guess that’s the main reason why the traffic condition has become worse and worse. We always get stuck in traffic jams during rush hour, and the cars are bumper to bumper on the road.

  Do you think people will drive more in the future?

  Well, actually I guess people would drive less in the future, ‘cause the traffic condition is so horrible today, it takes a lot of patience and good temper to drive on the road. Plus, people’s awareness of protecting the environment has been raised in recent years, so I believe more and more people would choose to go green/to have a greener lifestyle.

  Would you ride bikes to work in the future?

  Well, it depends on how far away my workplace is from my home. I mean, if it only takes me a few minutes to get to work by bike, I would definitely do it. However, if it’s far away, then I think it’s kind of a waste of time if I ride my bike to work.

  Do you like to take public transport?

  Well, like I said, I don’t like the public transport in my hometown, but I have to take the bus every day, you know, just to save money. But if they could improve the condition on the buses, like installing air-conditioning or making the bus more spacious, I would be willing to use public transport. After all, it’s much greener.
