R: We should probably talk about the difference between public transport and private transport. So public transport generally is stuff that's used by... Oh, sorry, means of transport that are used by lots and lots of people, and they don't own it directly, or they haven't paid for it. Like they've maybe paid a little bit for it, but they haven't paid a huge amount, whereas private transport is something that you own, and you have control over and you've paid a huge amount of money for. So, a car, for example, is private transport. Even if you're renting it, you're still paying a lot of money for it. And in the same way, a taxi. Now, I always think that taxis are private transport. But what do you think?
M: Really? I think it's public. Still, no, it's not yours.
R: That's really funny. I know. But you still pay more, and it's still for you. So it's kind of private. Taxis are on the borderline.
M: Okay. Interesting. Also, dear listener, if you have a private scooter, or a private bicycle, it's also your private transport. You also say that, I would always take the bus. So take the bus, take the train. It's always the bus or I can say like, I usually take a train, I take a taxi, I take a bike.
R: Well, bikes are private transport, aren't they? Unless it's a rented bike provided by the city because you have these in Moscow, and they're in London and some other big cities as well.
M: No, I was going for an article. So what do you usually say, I always take a bus?
R: Oh, take the bus.
M: Take the bus, right? So take the train.
R: Take a bike.
M: Take a bike. And you mentioned something about bus routes. Routes like the... Where do the buses go. Right?
R: Yes, it's the journey the buses go on a map. Like there are different places they stop. But I should have also talked about when you can get the bus too. Because they have bus timetables and train timetables. I didn't talk about that, but I should have.
M: And the second conditional, dear listener. So Rory told us, if we didn't have the car, if we didn't have the car, but Rory does have a car, then we would, we would take the bus, right? So the second conditional. Or, for example, if I could, I'd take a taxi. If I had more money, I'd buy a car and use my private vehicle. Vehicle is another synonym for a car, or a bus or like any vehicle on the road, or a truck, for example. You said that you use it out of necessity. So I use public transport out of necessity.
