## Bus: York to Leeds

- edited | 0 comments |I have taken this journey twice each working day for this last academic year (2009/10). I wondered how many miles and hours I have spent on the big blue buses.

#### Distances

Distance per Journey | 34 miles |

Distance per Day | 68 miles |

Total Distance | 68 miles x 5 days x 30 weeks = 10,200 miles |

This total distance covered is equivalent to just under the distance between London, UK and Sydney, Australia

#### Cost

Cost per Bus Pass | £80 |

Total Cost | £80 x 7 = £560 |

Petrol Costs | 10200mi x 35mpg x 105p = £1391.10 |

Taking the bus has cost 40% of what it would have cost for fuel alone if I had a car

#### Time

Time per Journey | 70 minutes |

Total Time | 70 mins x 2 x 30 x 5 = 14.58 days |

Final percentage for you: the time I have spent on the bus is equivalent to 4% of my whole year!
