     When planning a trip,nowadays,people have a choice among many different types of transport:cars,buses,trains,planes and ships.

      当今,当人们计划去旅游,都会在汽车,公交,火车,飞机和轮船这几种的运输工具中选择。

     Railroad provided the first successful system of mass transportation ,carrying crowds of people from one place to another. Now,Americans like to travel  by air.The reasons for this are that flying in America is not very expensive and a vast network of airlines and airports makes it possible to reach almost every major American town.Meanwhile,the National Railroad Corporation,known as Amtrak(American Travel Track) is trying its best to compete with the airlines.Trains have their own advantages:they are cheaper,safer,and more comfortable;they offer passengers the possibility to get on and off in the city center.

    铁路提供了第一个成功的大众运输系统,将成群的人从一个地方搬到另一个地方。当今,美国人喜欢选择飞机去旅游。这是因为美国为飞行提供了不贵的航空公司和机场及一个巨大的网络让旅客可以到达几乎每一个主要的美国小镇。同时,全国铁路公司,被称为美国铁路公司(美国旅游追踪)正在尽力与航空公司竞争。火车也有自己的优势:它们是更便宜,更安全,更舒适,他们为旅客提供更大的可能去市中心和离开市中心

     Those who cannot afford either train or plane take the bus.Nowadays motor buses have partly replaced railroad passenger service on many local routes in a great number of regions.Americans depend mostly on their cars,in which they go to work,go shopping,and even go on vacation.For long distances,a car can carry several passengers much more cheaply than the cost of airfare.Nothing is so expressive of the modern American way of life as the motor car.It can get one from his own home to his destination directly.

     那些支付不起火车票货飞机票的人就会选择公交车。当今,在许多地区的电动公交已经部分的取代了铁路客运服务在许多当地的路线。绝大部分美国人像上班,购物,甚至去度假的出行都要靠汽车。对于长距离的旅游,汽车可以把旅客运到目的地比飞机的花费还要便宜。没有什么比表达现代美国生活方式的汽车。它可以直接从自己家到他的目的地。
