Usage of "by" with means of transport
We all know about the usage of the preposition "by" in expressions like "travel by car", "go by train", "arrive by hydrofoil", etc. However very often we also need to add an adjective describing a vehicle like "a white car", "a fast hydrofoil", etc. Do we need to change the preposition in this case?
1) Travel by a white car / Travel in a white car
2) Go by a fast plane / Go on a fast plane
3) Arrive by a big hydrofoil / Arrive on a big hydrofoil
Does the preposition change?
Re: Usage of "by" with means of transport
Yes, the preposition changes because of the article.
