    Default get/take

    Dear teachers.

    I wonder which is natural, (1) or (2)?
    (1). My car broke down. I had to get the bus.
    (2). My car broke down. I had to take the bus.

    Hello,

    The second one is correct.
    My car broke down. I had to take the bus, but I was to late so I didn't get it.

    Kind regards,
    Dany

    They are both correct, but I agree that the second sounds more natural.
