## Train: Bristol to Cogan

- edited | 1 comment | trainsSimilar to my Bus: York to Leeds post back in 2010, I thought I would do a similar analysis for my commute for the last couple of years.

I took this journey twice each working day for 2 years before moving to Cardiff. I wondered how many miles and hours I have spent on the trains.

#### Distances

Distance per Journey | 37.3 miles |

Distance per Day | 74.6 miles |

Total Distance | 74.6 miles x 5 days x 90 weeks = 33,570 miles |

#### Cost

Cost per Ticket | £12 |

Total Cost | £12 x 5 days x 90 weeks = £5,400 |

Petrol Costs | 33,570mi x 35mpg x 134p = £5842.87 |

Taking the train has cost 92% of what it would have cost for fuel alone if I had used a car

#### Time

Time per Journey | 85 minutes |

Total Time | 85 mins x twice a day x 5 days x 90 weeks = 53.125 days |

Final percentage for you: the time I have spent on the train is equivalent to 7.27% of the 2 whole years!
