How did people in the 1950's get around?

In the 1950s, people got around basically the same way people do today.They went to work in cars, busses, or trains. More people rode busses and trains to work (percentage wise) than do today. Most middle class families only had one car. On vacation, people drove, took the train, or went by plane. Airlines were not as numerous as they are today and most people could not afford to take their entire family by plane. Kids rode to school on the same old school bus as kids today. A lot more kids rode their bikes (pedal type!) to school because many schools were in small towns or there were several close schools in districts in large cities. Many kids even walked to school. Major cities had taxi cabs but they were an expensive way to travel. In cities like New York, a large percent of the population used the subway (called the "EL" [elevated]) in some cities. There were more passenger trains in large cites than there are today. Just an example--I lived in New Jersey and was a NY Yankee fan. To go to a game at Yankee Stadium we would take the bus that picked us up on the corner of my street, take that bus to another city where we got a bus that took us into New York City. In the City we got on the subway (under ground) and for 10 cents we could ride it to the Yankee Stadium exit.
