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.
|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 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 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!
