Total cost to society per commute
Coburg to Melbourne CBD
The Age today reports that Deloitte Access Economics research…
“modelled a journey from Coburg to Flinders Street Station via car, train and bicycle and found – after taking traffic congestion, accidents and other impacts into consideration – that the car trip costs society nearly twice as much as the train trip, and 19 times more than riding a bike.”
Not much more to be said really… the conclusions are obvious.
