Bike vs. Bus Study in Cartoon Format

August 28, 2009 § 2 Comments

Ran across this on Copenhagenize.com:

This person in Brisbane charted out the time/costs/etc. for traveling to work via bus, and via bicycle for one week respectively. Would love to see a similar chart by people in Dallas, including traveling by car. For me personally, I know the cost in gas+parking downtown+amortized monthly car payment is more than a daily two-way local bus/light-rail pass. It would also be interesting to see calories burned by each method.

    I like how it is a comparison of time. But too bad he didn’t include the cost of a bike in the scheme. He could get a good bike for his yearly savings in bus fare!

    Just a quick anecdote: When I take the light rail up to Plano for work, I often pass (on my bike) the FLEX bus that goes from George Bush station and by my office.
