    'Best' depends on a number of factors - how far you need to go on a regular basis, if you need to be able to take passengers, if you need to be able to carry any kind of cargo (groceries, packages, etc.), the type of terrain, average temperature/precipitation, etc.

    A car/truck/SUV gives you a lot of freedom to commute further, go on trips, and carry other passengers/cargo.

    A motorcycle gives you the same kind of freedom, but you are generally limited to one passenger (unless you have a sidecar - but they are pretty rare), and limited cargo.  You are exposed to the elements as well - but with good tires and the right riding gear, I know people who ride year round.

    Motorized bicycle is good for short trips - and has the advantage of being lighter and being able to go just about anywhere (they frown at you for riding motorcycles on sidewalks, through grass, etc.).  They are more expensive than a standard bike (which is another option), but can keep you from getting as worn out/sweaty on a short commute (especially on hilly terrain).  Again, you are exposed to the elements.

    Public transportation (bus/train/subway) is a good alternative (if available) to having to worry about owning/operating a vehicle - or in conjunction with another mode of transportation like a bike (which you can bring on the bus with you) or a motorcycle (for those days when it rains and you don't want to ride).

    How far do you travel?

    Do you have a lot of money?

    Do you carry luggage?

    Do you enjoy getting wet?

    Do you like being exposed to all weathers?

    Do you see where my questions are leading?

    A bicycle or ebike most certainly so. Also a bus is fun to ride. Segway isn't bad either

    Electric trains. Buses are not too bad. Bicycles are dangerous because of the incompetent drivers on the road.

    How far do you have to go?  Electric bike is great in the summer, not so much in winter or when it's raining.  Do you  have to go on local roads or on busy highways?
