Now it doesn't accept "Is transportation expensive in Paris?". To my mind, both "transportation" and "public transportation" should be accepted, given the French version.

Did they forget the word public or?

We rather say transports en commun in french.

Perhaps "transportation" is American English, here in England we say "public transport"

"Public transit" is the more common American usage in my experience.

Yes, and it's rejected as of Jan 2022

Public transport would be a better translation
