As usual, you're absolutely right mate. Is that what you want to hear?DRK_NYT wrote:Between Driving, Public Transport and Cycling in a competition over the same distance it took the cyclist the longest to arrive at the destination.

The Duckmeister wrote:A breakfast radio program had this "commuter challenge" this morning. The contestants travelled from Nunawading railway station to the radio station's HQ in Richmond. What the OP fails to mention (what a surprise ) is that the PT user won. He did however score a train that ran express for a large section of the trip, which somewhat distorts any assumed average time against the rest of the system. Other similar "studies" from sources of variable credibility, conducted over different routes & distances have come up with different results, so this one instance can hardly be taken as irrefutable proof. I know from my own experience that riding to work is faster than driving & then walking from wherever I have to park. The bus takes even longer. Different routes/locations = different results.
