Student or Learner
I travel on a train, on a bus, on a tram/or I travel in a train, in a bus, in a tram
Also: I was riding in a cab. Is it correct?

One can use the prepositions 'by', 'on', 'in' , 'under' train/bus.
You will be confused if you try to learn these by using such short sentences as,
I travel.".by, in the , on the' " in isolation. The preposition 'in' will give the sentence a different meaning than if 'by' is used.
I was travelling in a cab
I was travelling by cab
Your next question would be, "But what's the didfference? How will I know which to use? Are the interchangeable?
That's what I mean about learning these prepositions in a CONTEXT of meaning.
