In addition, government should run more awareness raising campaigns to educate people about the importance of conserving the environment via small actions such as taking public transport. Posters can be stuck on electrical poles on the streets, or banners should be hung outside buildings, for example.

Why types of public transport do you use most?
As far as I’m concerned, I take buses more often than any other means of transport. That might be due to the fact that I am liable to carsickness buses aren’t so stuffy. Moreover, bus wouldn’t set me back because with only 200,000 dong for a monthly commutation ticket. I could commute to work every day without any anxiety.
