Yes, it is safe to use public transit or ride a bike. Many cities have implemented safety measures to protect commuters, such as bike lanes and improved public transit systems. It's always a good idea to wear a helmet when biking and to follow traffic laws. And when taking public transit, be sure to follow any posted safety guidelines and wear a mask if required. Overall, using sustainable transportation options is not only safe, but it's also a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and improve your health.
