Quote from: Bus 400 on October 24, 2014, 11:51:52 AMJust on fuel (ignoring the wear & tear) I spend $50-60 a week & that involes a 20 odd minute each way. Plus I only stop at 3 sets of traffic lights in total. I only drive as it involves me leaving the night before & I have erratic hours. Plus I have a long walk between the bus stops & work & a nice long climb from the bus stop to home.
