6 times when it’s ok to use public transport

Written by | Advice, Fun

Obviously we think it’s about time you take to the road, but that doesn’t mean it’s the driving seat or nothing. There are, under certain circumstances, times when it is in fact ok to get on the bus, train or tube, and here are 6 of them.

#1. I’ve been drinkin’, I’ve been drinkin’

If you’ve been on the Jaegerbombs (or any other type of alcohol), it’s time to get on the bus. Not only is it stupid and incredibly dangerous to drive after you’ve been drinking, but it’s also illegal. Likewise, if you ever find yourself waking up on the kitchen floor ‘wondering how the hell this sh*t happened’ (yes, this is a Beyonce fest), then it’s also time to get the bus. Just because it’s the next day, it does not mean you’re sober.

#2. You’re on your hollybobs

Just because you can drive, it doesn’t mean you should hop into your own hire car the second you touch down in Maga. This is for a few reasons: a) refer to the above, b) you’ve only just got used to driving on the left, and c) it’s probably not even allowed. In most cases, you need to have been driving for a while until they let you try out life on the right hand side of the road, so the local (and probably very sweaty) bus will do for now.

#3. You need to travel further than 12 metres in 30 minutes

We can’t argue with the fact that the tube was a wonderful invention, and there’s also denying that London traffic can be an absolute killer. If you need to be somewhere in London and you want to be on time, do yourself a favour and get your Oyster card out.

#4. When it’s a park and ride

Because, at the end of the day, we’re all about the driving and the parking. Oh and Park and Ride buses are basically buses… but posher.

#5. You’re on one of those wedding buses

Ok, it’s going to happen maybe three times in your life (if your friends don’t have much imagination), but when you’re invited on to someone’s wedding bus, you’ve got to take the opportunity. Because it’s like a party bus, but classier.

#6. You’re a child

We’ll let you off. Now get off the internet and go and play with some sticks or something.
