4.You need to travel from your home to a place 40 miles (64 kilometers) away. Compare the different kinds of transportation you could use. Tell which method of travel you would choose. Give specific reasons for your choice.

If I had a journey of 40 miles away from my home, I would think of the following means of transportations: by bike, car and bus. To make a choice, I will choose bus. In this essay I will analyze them all and explain the reason for my choice.

Travelling by car has many advantages. First of all, it's very flexible to get in the car. Secondly, by travelling by car, I can manage my time and my speed. If I'm in a hurry, I will tell the driver to speed up. Otherwise, we can make some stops to have a drink or meal when feel thirsty or hungry. However, the cost of travelling by car is very expensive, especially with a first year student like me.

One another choice is travelling by bike. With travelling by bike, we can also manage our time and speed. Additionally, we can enjoy the fresh air and beautiful surroundings on the road. But the cost of gasoline for the bike still cost us much money nowadays.

Lastly, the cost of travelling by bus is the cheapest of all, I need not to buy gasoline, need not to drive so I can relax and enjoy the landscape from the window. But I can not manage my time and have to follow the bus schedule. But I think it can't change my mind of choosing bus for my journey.
In conclusion, I would choose bus if I have a jouney of 40 miles away from home. Though it will take me more time than travelling by bike or car but I still find it most suitable for me because of its cheapness and comfort.
