Answer a few simple questions about your commute and our calculator will work out your cost so you can see how you compare.
How you commute impacts the environment as well as your pocket.
Did you know that in the UK, 55% of greenhouse gas emissions from transport are from cars and taxis, while just 3% are from buses and coaches2?
Cars are the most popular mode of travel in the UK1 but we need to switch to walking, cycling and public transport to tackle climate change and reach net zero.
Have you thought about changing your commute?
Increased use of public transport has environmental, health and societal benefits.
Reducing car journeys means less vehicles on the road, a decrease in congestion and reduced air and noise pollution.
Cost calculation does not include maintenance, insurance or road tax for vehicles.
