Getting from One Place to Another
A tourist stops Phillip to ask him for some advice about the quickest and cheapest way to get
to Chester city centre…
Tourist: Excuse me, what's the best way to get to Chester city centre from here?
Phillip: Well, let’s see…The fastest way to get to Chester city centre would be by train.
Although, going there by bus would be much cheaper.
Tourist: Oh, I see. What time does the bus leave?
Phillip: Mm… I’m afraid the last bus for today left about half an hour ago.
Tourist: What a shame! I wonder if you know how much the train ticket costs?
Phillip: The last time I travelled by train was about a year ago and the ticket cost £20.
Tourist: That’s quite expensive! Are there any cheaper options? Metro or taxi?
Phillip: I’m afraid there isn’t. Train and bus are the only public transport options available
here and taxis can be very expensive. Locals usually travel by car.
Tourist: I see. Well thank you for your time!
Phillip: No problem. Have a good trip!
