    Let me take you to your destination by bus.

    "If I ask someone who is going somewhere whether I need to go with them, where they are going and I don't have a car, we have to go by bus, metro or auto, then what do I need to say?" "Can I come with you" or "do you want me to come with you?"

    "If I have to take them to their destination by bus, metro or auto, then what do I need to say?" "Let me take you to your destination" we can't say "let me drop you to your destination" Am I correct?

    Please check.

    I'll take you to X,
    Let me take you to X.
    I'm going to Y. I'll drop you (off) at X.


    What do you mean by 'auto'?

    Re: Let me take you to your destination by bus.

    Then you will need to add 'rickshaw' if you are writing for British and American readers.
