Hi Akiko

Where are you? I’m at the station waiting for you. Are you on the train? What time does it arrive? I’ll wait for you here at the station.

See you soon

Hi Kim

I’m on the train, but it’s late! It arrives at 17:30. Don’t wait for me at the station. I’ll get a bus to your house. What’s the bus number?

See you later

I rarely use the train. When I need to go somewhere I usually take the bus, I walk or my parents bring my there by car.

No, I don't use the train in my town except school trips. I usually take a bus or my parents' car.

In my own country, the trains aren't popular transportation. If we want to go to one place from another, we often use the bus. There is a traffic jam either, but if we want a convenient trip, we will go to midnight. : (
