Most of people in Singapore take MRT or public bus to work. How do we say “i take MRT/bus to work”in mandarin ?
☘️The verb “take” in mandarin is “zuò（坐）” means to sit. When you take transportation and you are not the driver you should use “zuò（坐）”as the verb.
🌲MRT 🚇 in mandarin is “dì tiě（地铁）” means underground railway literally means “ground iron” .
🌲Bus 🚋in mandarin is “bā shì（巴士）” which is an overseas Chinese version while we have the other words which is also widely use in mainland China .
😎To work in mandarin is “shàng bān（上班）”.
🎈Now we have
wǒ zuò dìtiě/bāshì shàngbān
I sit MRT/bus to work( literally )
I take MRT/bus to work.
