Firstly, there is almost no choice at the beginning. There are not any buses and cabs driving through the road
Firstly, there is almost no choice at the beginning. There are not any buses and cabs driving through the road in front of our yard, all my family live in a village. The possible method for me is by autobike. Usually my father drives autobike to take me to the nearest bus station. There is exception too, sometimes my mother would like to walk side by side with me to the same place, especially when I will leave home for a long period.
Secondly, when I am in the terminal bus stop, I have to take bus consequently, it is the only one choice for me. Because there is no railway passing though our county and cab is expensive. By foot is not a realizable choice either, because the nearest airfield or railway station is nearly 150 kilometers away.
At last, there are three candidate choices before me. They are bus, train and air plane. Time should be taken into account now. If it is emergent, then I make my decision by their arrival time, the earliest one is my choice. Otherwise, I put train to the first place. Why I do not consider bus is that taking long distance bus always makes me feel very tired and there is no clear difference between their costs. I do not choose airplane lies in it`s deer cost. I always save money as possible as I can.
This is just a map to my choice.
