    "Since the car broke down Ann has been riding a bus to school for the last couple of weeks." Can we use "ride with ohter means of transportation in this context?

    NOT A NATIVE
    I think "taking" should be used in this context.

    You could say:
    .
    She has been riding a horse to school for the last couple of weeks.
    She has been taking the train to school for the last couple of weeks.

    Re: ride a buss

    You can find ride being used for trains in this lyrics of the song Subway Train. However, it's not something I hear used very much.

    Can we say:

    "She 's been riding on a bus for the past couple of weeks."
