Public transportation is convenient for those who don’t own a car, don’t want to rent a car, or don’t have the space to keep a car in such a crowded city like Pasadena. The options available to the public include taxis, trains, subways and buses. Riding a bus to and from work, school, to run errands, to go out for the night and to go to the doctor can be convenient at all times of the day and night. It can also be dangerous to ride a bus.
