(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 There are a lot of merits of public transportation.  Firstly, it saves energy because it is more energy-efficient. Moreover car is polluting but if the number of people who use public transportation increases, it is good for the environment and it will also alleviate traffic congestion.
 Secondly it saves time especially in heavily congested areas because it keeps the schedule. Unless there is any accident, it keeps the timetable so that it can take you less time than cars especially in heavily congested areas.
 Thirdly, it is good for health. It is much healthier to walk to the station and get train and walk to the destination than just to drive from home to the destination.
 Fourthly, we can have much free time on train or bus. We can nap or read in train or bus instead of paying attention while driving.
 Finally it saves many lives by reducing traffic accidents. Car accident is one of the major causes of death but trains are much safer than cars. Therefore it saves many lives by reducing traffic accidents.
 As I mentioned, there are a lot of merits of public transportation.
