Learning the basic words about the vehicles is not that hard. In details, the names of the vehicles are:
巴士 bā shì (bus)
德士 dé shì (taxi)
地铁 dì tiě (MRT)
船 chuán (boat)
飞机 fēi jī (aeroplane)
你怎么上学？ Nǐ zěn me shàng xué? (How do you go to school?)
我坐巴士。 Wǒ zuò bā shì. (I take the bus.)
我坐地铁。 Wǒ zuò dì tiě. (I take the MRT.)
我走路上学。 Wǒ zǒu lù shàng xué. (I walk to school.)
妈妈开车。 Mā ma kāi chē. (Mum drives a car.)
I have made a set of cards on Quizlet (quizlet.com or download the app for phone or ipad) to help your child practice learning the names of the vehicles.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose “more vehicles”.

You do not need to know any Mandarin yourself to use any of these resources.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
