    How good is the public transport where you live?

    Topic: How good is the public transport where you live?

    I think the public transport are well developed here because there are many bus stops around almost every estate. Take my estate as an example, I can get to 3 different bus stops within 10-minute walking distance, and it only takes me 30 minutes to get to the downtown. Also, the frequent of bus and railway service is high; the interval for most bus services are 5-15 minutes and the interval for railway services are 1-2 minutes during rush hours.
    The population is high here so traffic congestion happens very often. I remember once I was stuck in a bus for one and a half hour. Sometimes, when part of the railway service is out of order, many people could be stuck in a station. The station becomes very stuffy and hot with lots of people, especially in summer. Luckily, in those cases, the railway company would arrange shuttle bus services for affected passengers to transfer to other normal stations.

    See above.

    Edit: As you can see, we both changed "one and a half hour" to "an hour and a half". Our version is much more colloquial. However, if you really want to keep your word order, you need to use "hours" at the end.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
