I came to The United States of America on Dec 2013 and from that time until I moved to New Jersey State to study at NYIT in New York .I never used any public transportation. When I was on Irvine, CA. When I moved to New Jersey I decided to use it . It will make my life more easy to move , because if I need to use my car it will cost me a lot of money especially if I need to cross George Washington Bridge . It will cost 15$ per entry . Also, I have to spend some time to find parking . It will cost a lot especially in Manhattan . That why I started to use public transportation from New Jersey to New York and it cost just 264$ for one month . I was very surprised when I asked for a discount for the student they said there is no discount for the public transportation . One of my friend who live in Halifax, Canada . He told me he can use any public transportation free because he is a student. My question is why I cannot get a discount or use it free as a student. Bus, Subway,Train and Ferry are very helpful here in New Jersey and New York.
