Maybe one day you could sit next to one of them
Probably when we think about the life of celebrities we imagine that every day is full of luxuries, parties, extravagant dresses and trips in private planes or elegant cars.
However, sometimes we forget that they are people just like us and go to the movies, to buy a coffee, to the gym or to go for a bike ride, and they do it in the most ordinary way, without catwalk suits or limousines.
It is true that going to your destination in a car and with a driver can be much more comfortable than going on public transport, which is usually crowded and has long waiting times. But in cities like New York or London, public transport is so efficient that using it is a better option than driving your own car.
Thus, in many cities, moving by bus or train is the best way to get to your destination and some celebrities know it. In addition, they help the planet by reducing their carbon footprint.
