To describe differences in the behaviour of people often the expression "Some people do ..., other people do ..." is used. For example: "Some people drive cars, other people ride bicycles".

If I wanted to extend this expression by a third group of people/behaviour, what would be the idiomatic extension? Like

Some people drive cars, other people ride bicycles, even(?) other people go by the tube.

    I think it would go like Some ..., some ..., and some... – dan Nov 30 '17 at 7:14

One possibility is

... (while) (yet) others ...

Some people sight-see in their cars, some ride bikes, while others prefer to walk.

Some people sight-see in their cars, some ride bikes, yet others prefer to walk.

Some people sight-see in their cars, some ride bikes, while yet others prefer to walk.

I have listed them here in what I feel to be an order of increasing contrast.

    "Still others" is also frequently used. – Canadian Yankee Nov 30 '17 at 16:17
