1.How often do you take the bus? (depend 法)
Actually, it really depends on different occasions.
Like for instance, if it is from Monday to Friday, I would like to take the bus everyday to the office because bus is just the perfect vehicle for commuting.
Whereas in contrast, if it’s at weekends, bicycle becomes my option in stead of bus, mainly because cycling is a good way of physical exercise and I have plenty of time for thatat weekends.
版本二：Usually only for special occasions. Like 3 times a month or so. This is because I prefer traveling by subway if I have to go somewhere.
2.When was the first time you took a bus?(wh类)据实回答
Actually, I really can’t remember that clearly. But I guess it should be after my graduation time of primary school.
This was due to the fact that I moved on to the middle school which was a bit far away from home, so I had to take the bus instead of walking.
3.Is it convenient to take the bus in your city?(是非类)肯否法
Well, I guess it is really convenient because we have a very powerful and completed bus transit system, including BRT.
You may go to every corner of the city with bus in a very short time. •However, we also know that bus is not a kind of door-to-door vehicle, so if you want more convenience, you'd better consider other options.
4.Do people in your country take the bus?(是非类)depends
Actually, it really depends on the different age groups.
For the teenagers , they usually take the bus because they are somewhat independent to take the bus by themselves but still too young to drive.
For the young adults under 30, they would also like to take the bus because they may not be wealthy enough to afford a car just after several years of working.
5.What is the difference between taking a bus and taking a train?
There is not much difference when going for smaller distances, apart from the fact that trains tend to be more comfortable as one gets to sleep. With bus, one is stuck at one place and has to sit. However, in longer distances, trains tend to be more faster as compared to bus.
6.What do you do when you are on a bus
Oh, I just listen to music in order not to listen to conversations between people as more often than not people speak so loudly that you can’t help hearing everything they say.
7.How good is the bus service where you live?
I wouldn’t say the bus service in my city runs like clockwork, but it is efficient, at least, compared to that in other cities in my country. There is an extensive network of buses and there are both short bus lines and long ones.
《孤独星球》之getting around spain by bus
There are few places in Spain where buses don’t go. Numerous companies provide bus links, from local routes between villages to fast intercity connections. It is often cheaper to travel by bus than by train, particularly on long-haul runs, but also less comfortable.
Local services can get you just about anywhere, but most buses connecting villages and provincial towns are not geared to tourist needs. Frequent weekday services drop off to a trickle, if they operate at all, on Saturday and Sunday. Often just one bus runs daily between smaller places during the week, and none operate on Sunday. It’s usually unnecessary to make reservations; just arrive early enough to get a seat.
On many regular runs – say, from Madrid to Toledo – the ticket you buy is for the next bus due to leave and cannot be used on a later bus. Advance purchase in such cases is generally not possible. For longer trips (such as Madrid to Seville or to the coast), and certainly in peak holiday season, you can (and should) buy your ticket in advance. On some routes you have the choice between express and stopping-all-stations services.
In most larger towns and cities, buses leave from a single estación de autobuses (bus station). In smaller places, buses tend to operate from a set street or plaza, often unmarked. Locals will know where to go and where to buy tickets.
Bus travel within Spain is not overly costly. The trip from Madrid to Barcelona starts from around €32 one way. From Barcelona to Seville, which is one of the longest trips (15 to 16 hours), you can pay at least €100 one way.
