Nowadays, people in Solo prefer to take personal vehicles to go working rather than walk or bike. That’s because the public transport system in this city does not fully satisfy them. In contrast, the villagers in Sukoharjo town love riding bicycles. They realize that this habit makes their body healthier than that of Solo citizen. Besides, their daily activities are limited only in near places. Consequently, they don’t need machine-driven vehicles such as cars, buses, motor cycles etc.
