Part Seven: Buses and Taxis
Personally, I hate public transportation – especially taxis; however, sometimes they can be useful for getting out of a large city…and yes, sometimes they will give you free rides.
Taking the bus in the evening is not preferable, simply because the bus driver probably won’t offer you a place to stay for the night. A hitched ride might.
In cities, if there is a subway system it is usually better than the city bus system, which can be extremely confusing.
