Olá, PortuguesePod101 listeners! Do you ride the bus in your hometown? Is it expensive, and can it take you anywhere you'd want to go? If not, how else do you like to get around? Leave us a post and let us know!

Oi Kim,


É verdade. Em cidades pequenas, é muito mais fácil se locomover de carro em vez de transporte público.

Obrigada pelo comentário!

Minha cidade não tem um bom sistema de transporte público porque minha cidade é pequena. Eu uso um carro para viajar.

Hi Cíntia,


Thank you for posting.


Just a few notes:

"de ônibus" (on bus);

"na minha cidade" (in my city); we need to use the feminine singular possessive pronoun "minha" (my) to match the feminine singular noun "cidade" (city);

"Eles não são muito caros." (They are not too expensive.); "caros" is the plural masculine form, required in this case. Same for "convenientes", which must be in the plural form.


Hope this helps! For more details, please check out our http://www.PortuguesePod101.com/myteacher

Eu não ando do ônibus aqui, mas eles existem em meu cidade. Eles não muito caro, mas também, não muito conveniente.

Hi Jaimie,


Thanks for posting!


In natural casual speech here, Brazilians may also omit the article, for example:

"As pessoas costumam usar carro ou Uber." (Literally, "People (tend to) use car or Uber.")

Eu sou dos Estados Unidos. Não temos um ônibus onde eu moro. As pessoas usam os carros ou o Uber.


(Can you please tell me if I used those articles correctly - os carros ou o Uber? I am not sure if I need them or not- thanks😄)

Olá Anne,


Thank you for posting!


Just a note: We use “Eu sou da Alemanha.” (da = contraction of the preposition “de” plus feminine article “a”, meaning “from”, because it is used before a feminine proper noun, “Alemanha”).


Please check out this lesson for more details on that grammar point:

Please also check out our Portuguese Dictionary to see how to write "tram" in Portuguese:

Oi, sou de Alemanha é aqui temos um transporte publico muito bom, é um pouco caro mas funciona muito bom (como dois dolares um passagem)

há tudo (metro, tram, trem, autocarro) e normalmente vão toda a noite, tambem há ônibus no póvoa. Em Alemanha, não se precisa um carro, pelo menos eu acho :)

Oi Carole,


"Trem" é bem mais fácil de lembrar, por que parece com o inglês "train"!

Nos avise se tiver qualquer pergunta!
