3.  In North America, most students usually go to school by school bus or subway. In small towns and cities, walking is still popular. The yellow school bus is very convenient (便利的)because it takes students right to the entrance (入口)to the school. Students can also talk with their friends on it. But the bus is slow and is not always on time. The subway runs quickly. However, it is expensive and can be very crowded sometimes.
