Train: Bristol to Cogan- edited | 1 comment | trains
Similar 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.
|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 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 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!
