Street Scenes: Commuters Shanghai China

The last time I was in Shanghai, almost two years ago, there were significantly more scooters on the back streets behind The Bund.

Just a few years earlier the majority of commuters stopping for the light at this same corner were riding bicycles. What is your main mode of transportation?

I always bike :) Most of my required places are a bike ride away in downtown Toronto. If I have to go uptown, there's always bus/subway. I hate cars (because I don't have one lol)

I love to walk, which is why I'm definitely a city girl.

Prefer walking though we take the car out these days..the bikes and scooters pollute the city ,buses are too crowded and trains non existent.. if I have to rely on public transport, I take the autorickshaw though its mighty expensive these days

Final Transit, Fly Girl, Hobo, Catherine and Lakshmi,
Looks like walking and public transit are the way to go for us city dwellers. I haven't owned a car in 15 years and take the subway for the most part.
Lakshmi, when in India my husband and I typically take auto rickshaws.
