    "Main transportation"

    Hi,

    I wrote a sentence like this "The main transport (ation) in this city includes bus and subway". However, someone said the sentence is supposed to be written as "The main means of transport (ation)......."

    Is the word "means" really necessary here?

    Thank you!
