You have made an error when giving the time - Your table does not provide information from 1985 to 2000, instead it gives figures for 1985 and 2000. Those are very important points in reporting as you need to report facts as accurately as they are presented in the image.

Hello SHanafi,

Perhaps we can divide the means of transport to be two categories;
1. private transport (bicycle, car)
2. public transport (local bus, long distance bus, train, taxi)
however, walking and other become the other choice.

A key point in IELTS task 1 is how we can analyze the differences and the sameness of two distinct subjects and we have to adopt the comparison and contrast pharagraph in essay.

This is a very important aspect in report writing. You should not make any errors when interpreting data, trends and other information. Accuracy of data in reporting is one of the most important aspects in this task. Be careful!

Striking contrast, local bus using fell from 429 miles in 1985 to 274 miles in 2000, noted as the greatest degradation.

You need to adopt a tone which is more appropriate for reporting facts;
The long distance buses have recorded a decline form 429 miles in 1985 to 274 mile in 2000.
