If you are thinking whether to use the train or bus to go to your destination, check the bus routes first as some buses will pass several stops before reaching the destination. Meanwhile, the trains are split from 1-2 kms and there may not be a nearby train station from your destination. It is best to combine the train and buses for maximum efficiency and to save time.
