    Diplomacy,


    (1) Longman English Grammar (by Mr. L.G. Alexander) is,

    I hear, used by many students.

    (2) He gives this list:

    by air/ bicycle/ bike/ boat/bus/car/ plane/ ship/train/ tube

    (Americans say "subway").

    An exception to "by X" is "on foot."

    (3) I prefer to say:

    I get to work by car.
