That's quite a fun site...but it offers me no alternative other than to use the car.
If I leave the house at 8:04, I could be at work by 9:45...shame that I start at 8am.
Hometime is better: if I leave at 16:39, I could be home by 18:07. Unfortunately I work til 17:00 or 17:30.
If I shortened my working day by 3 or 3.5 hours, I could use public transport; I'd even get a 45 minute lie-in...
Got to agree with Wilkie pear tree, it's business as usual here, I don't think it will come to anything. Mind you I have been wrong before.
I commute to work, but trying to get anywhere (other than into London) by public transport is hopeless.
I live in Essex, and to get to Stansted airport would mean going into London on one train, and back out on another - about twice as far, and twice the time.
I got a local bus a while ago, and for a journey of about two miles, it was £2.80. It would cost less than that by car, even if I had to pay to park.
I have no idea what my trip to work would cost by bus/train, but it costs me about a fiver a day in diesel. If I had to reduce my working hours by (a conservative) 12 hours a week in order to use public transport, it would cost me £500 a month in lost income at £10 an hour (and I'm happy to say I'm paid more than that )
Petrol prices would have to go up astronomically for me to find it economically viable to switch to public transport...
I dont really care how much fuel costs, in fact £5 a litre is fine by me as long as the money is extra revenue used to build gas chambers for the "global warming is a result of Co2 emissions" retards.
The global warming bollocks as a result of you driving your car is a fantastic example of how easy it is to fool most of the people most of the time.
god bless the stupid people, I guess at least they help keep the income tax lower.
Lord a mercy!
that web site is so funny.Looking at my journey to work by car it suggests going down Marlborough Hill in Bristol, which is one way coming up the hill
