    She comes (vs goes) to work by bus

    Hello.

    I am curious if you feel any difference between these two sentences,

    'She comes to work by bus' and 'She goes to work by bus'.

    Thanks

    Alex.

    Re: She comes (vs goes) to work by bus

    You can say "she goes to work by bus" when you are anywhere to describe her normal behavior.

    If you say "she comes to work by bus" it only makes sense if you are at "work." For example, you are in the office and the boss says "where's Suzi?"

    "I don't know, she usually comes to work by bus, but she isn't here yet. Maybe there was a delay."
