    People, by using pubic transport services, are able to save money at some degree.

    Hi there,

    "People, by using pubic transport services, are able to save money at some degree." Is my sentence structure correct? And, how about the language I used? Have I used "degree" accurately?

    Please give some feedback!

    Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure you're talking about public transport, not pubic services.

    Raymott! In brief, we say "public transport or transportation", not "pubic transport service or services", right? Perhaps, public transport itself is a service.

    Yes, "services" is redundant. People use public transport.

    I guess I was being too subtle. We say 'public' or 'pubic' for two entirely different reasons. I thought by bolding the two words, it would be obvious that they are different. One relates to people in general, and the other refers to the genital area.

    Raymott! I just noticed that I made a typo mistake. And, I was ashamed just as I saw it . I am sorry about that. Yeah! I did mean "public transport" not "pubic".
