Difference between Public and Private Transport

Transport is a system used to move people or goods from one place to another. There are various modes of transport including air, rail, sea and road. Arriving in a strange city, especially after dark, can be a challenging enough experience at the best of times. One of the things you can do to make it a lot easier is to pre-arrange a private airport transfer. If you forget to do this, then your other choice is public transport. Although there is nothing wrong with public transport, it is quicker and more efficient to have your travel arranged before your arrival. This is especially important if your flight gets in late and public transport is is no longer operating for the night.

Having said this; it is important to know the difference between public and private transport:

Public Transport

Buses, trains and metros are all classified as public transfers as it’s a mode of transport in which a number of people share. These types of transport all have their own schedules because they pass specific routes at certain times throughout the day. Usually run by the State, the only advantage of this type of transport is that they are relatively cheap and everyone using the service are charged equally. However, they are often overpacked and stuffy, particularly during the summer months. Furthermore, drivers will not wait for you if you’re running late and buses often don’t stop if they are overpacked.

Private Transport

In contrast to public transfers, with private transfers you don’t share the vehicle with others. The only people you share it with is the driver and your friends/family/colleagues. Normally, chauffeurs or executive cars are rented for private use, but buses and train carriages may also be used privately if you have a big party (although these cost more).

Private transfers have the following advantages over using public trains, buses, etc:

The advantages listed above should not be considered an exhaustive list, but they do give some idea of how private transport services are superior in numerous ways. If it’s cost you’re worried about then have no fear. What you’ll have to pay is not much more than public transport services, and may actually cost less in certain circumstances.

For all these reasons, and many more, it makes perfect sense to book a private transfer for your next business trip.
