Ama is a small town, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Ama, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 98.26% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.
Ama is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
