5 Best Public Transportation Travel-Related Quotes
“Transportation is the center of the world! It is the glue of our daily lives. When it goes well, we don’t see it. When it goes wrong, it negatively colors our day, makes us feel angry and impotent, curtails our possibilities.“

“You cannot understand a city without using its public transportation system.”
“On public transportation, you see things that no one should have to ever see.”

4 Best Bus Travel Quotes
“On a bus, your eyes, ears, and pores are open, absorbing in the variety, the wonder, the magic of the city. It is a beautiful way to get to know the city.“
A bus ride is like being in another world.“
“Some people don’t like long bus rides, but I love them. There’s sort of a sense of solitude.”
“When you are travelling by bus, it is always difficult to decide whether you should sit in a seat by the window, a seat on the aisle, or a seat in the middle. If you take an aisle seat, you have the advantage of being able to stretch your legs whenever you like, but you have the disadvantage of people walking by you and they can accidentally step on your toes or spill something on your clothing.
If you take a window seat, you have the advantage of getting a clear view of the scenery, but you have the disadvantage of watching insects die as they hit the glass. If you take a middle seat, you have neither of these advantages, and you have the added disadvantage of people leaning all over you when they fall asleep. You can see at once why you should always arrange to hire a limousine or rent a mule rather than take the bus to your destination.”

Cathy Dobson, The Devil’s Missal
“For the longest time, ferry boats made me sad. But from now on, I will look at them the way my husband did. I will see the beauty. I will see the wind, the air, the sea, the motion.”
4 Best Subway Travel Quotes
“Every day I walk down the street or hop on the subway, I am reminded that I am a citizen of a very big, incredibly diverse world.”
“Funny how nobody talks on the tubes, isn’t it? I rarely catch the tube myself, or lifts. Confined spaces, everybody shuts down. Why is that? Perhaps we think everybody on the tube is a potential psychopath or a drunk,so we close down and pretend to read a book or something.”
“The experience of riding in a subway or elevator calls to mind Bertrand Russell’s remark that much of modern anxiety stems from the time we spend in unnatural proximity to strangers without the preliminary sniffing that is instinctive in animals, including us.“
Ralph Caplan, By Design: Why There Are No Locks on the Bathroom Doors in the Hotel Louis XIV and Other Object Lessons
“I’m frugal. It’s often cheaper to take subway. And I am an environmentalist, which my mother installed in me, so I really believe in public transportation. I love the proximity to people in the subway.”
