Thread: on a bike

    on a bike

    Can I say I came here on a bike or I go to school on a bus every day?
    Which other prepositions can I use with means of transport?

    Re: on a bike

    The prepositions for transportation don't always make a lot of sense.
    You travel in a car, but on a bus, on a train, and on a plane.

    You can always travel "by" something. I came by car. I came by bus. I came by camel.
