Public services are often financed via taxation while private services are based on the user pays principle. Public services often cater for larger groups while private services are often for smaller numbers - this is true for educational services for example. In terms of transport, taxis are private while buses tend to be public - one offers a small scale more personalised service the other a scheduled, predictable service along a fixed route.
