    Transport

    Hi guys,

    Is it correct to say "Company provides transportation" or we need to say "Transport"?

    Re: Transport

    Neither.

    You can say "The company provides transportation" or "The company will provide transport." depending on the context.

    Re: Transport

    I am not a teacher.

    I would say "The Company provides transport for its employees".

    Just out of curiosity tufguy, what variety of English are you studying? If we knew that it might help to make the answers more pertinent.

    As is often the case with your questions you provide a couple of similar expressions and then ask which is correct.

    In this particular case I think the word you want would be transport in BrE and transportation in AmE.

    Re: Transport

    Like probus, I see no reason to capitalise 'company'.
