PRIVATE CAR OR BUS?
Take the bus to and from work in the Interior Why? Buses are safer than a car Less risk of a Road Accident If there is an accident you are better protected in a bus You can relax in comfort, talk to your friends read or sleep during the journey Let the bus driver do the driving Your company pays for the bus-does not cost you It make sense to take the bus-well doesn`t it??
