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: 96.79% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.
As is often the case in a small town, Ama doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
