Transport

Due to the extent of its connections and its relatively low cost, public transportation in Britain is very impressive. However, the British trains are notorious throughout Europe for showing up late or not at all. Nevertheless, any traveller should take note that many Brits use public transportation on a daily basis in lieu of a car. Therefore, after the initial shock and scramble of figuring things out, a visitor to the United Kingdom (meaning: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) will find the public transport system quite useful.
London has the Underground (AKA “The Tube”), which is a vast underground transit system, although most British transport travels above ground. In London and other cities, for example, taking a city bus or a taxi is quite common. Even smaller cities have an extensive city bus system. Though much of Britain is rural, you can get a bus to most places.
