I dont see how you can actually enjoy it, I just feel embarrassed using it at my age.

Well I have a licence and passed my test and 17 but I still have to get public transport because a car is too expensive while at uni.
But I like just sitting listening to music and looking out if the window during journeys so I'm not too bothered. It is a pain having to wait around for buses though

I actively dislike public transport and find it hard to find a reason not to drive unless I'm drinking.

It's over-crowded, unreliable, overpriced and generally unpleasant

I don't actually mind public transport too much! But, if I had a longer train journey than I do to work I would probably hate it.

The most annoying part is delays and when train services are striking etc.

What is it that makes you embarrassed about public transport?

Yeah it's awful. I took it every day to school before I got a car. It's late, it's slow, its uncomfortable and it's really not that much cheaper. A day ticket for the bus in NI is £3.50, that's about £700 a year.(And this is for the bus, god knows how much if you take the train) Driving to school and back home costs me about £1 in petrol per day. £200 a year. I suppose there is insurance and stuff to consider but really I'd say driving is really not that much more expensive that the bus.

Public transport is horrible.
Buses are slow. Trains are unreliable and expensive. The underground is way too cramped and polluted and you're definitely getting coronavirus if you go on it.

I'd always rather walk but it's most often too far for where I need to go. Unfortunately I haven't learnt to drive yet but when I do I'm not taking public transport again.
