1. What do you think of the transportation system in your hometown?
Generally the transportation in Beijing is good.There are enough public transport lines and it is convenient to take buses or the subway. But there are also problems. Beijing now is notorious for traffic jams. I think it is not only because the number of private automobiles are increasing,but also the roads are not well planned.And the management is poor.I hope the situation will be improved after 2008.
2. Can you imagine what transportation will be like in the future?
I think it will be fueled by different energy sources because we may not have enough petrol in the future. So I think when new energy sources come out,we'll see differently designed transportation. I also guess that some transportation will begin to use the air more often. Maybe our cars will be flying and there will be flying bicycles too.
3. How many kinds of transportation are there in China? And what should the government do to promote public transportation?
Well,there are lots of kinds of transportation in China such as automobiles,trains,steamships and airplanes,among which the most convenient one is the bicycle. As you know, China is a country with a large population,so the government, I think, should increase investment in public transportation,construct more highways and facilitate people's travel.
