Describe a bus or train station in your city.
You should say:
- Where it is
- What types of transportation are available there
- How you can go there
and explain why people use this station.
I live at (…say the area name…) in the (…city name…) and this is 15 minutes driving distance from the bus terminal. This is one of the busiest bus stations in our city. The area where I live in has a large number of populations who use this station to go to different places every day. This bus station is beside the old bridge area and adjacent to the gas station and cantonment school.
Usually public buses, double deck buses, taxies and rent-a-cars are available in this station. People can hire large private cars in case they want to hire it for the entire day for long distance journey. Each day almost 5 thousand people go to different places from this station.
I can reach the station in 15 minutes if I drive my car or around 20 minutes if I take a taxi. It would take around an hour to reach there if I want on foot. Alternatively I can take a tram bus to reach there and it takes around 25 minutes. Usually I go to my work place/ university from this bus station and to reach this bus station I rely on the public bus that I can catch just in front of my home.
This is the largest bus station in our area and buses travel almost in every direction from here. People around this area come to this station first to take a car to go to long distances. Even the inter-bus city service is available only in this station and people have to get at this station first to go outside our city. The train station is far away from our city and that’s why people in our area mostly rely on this bus station to go to different parts of the city or even outside the city.
