    I travel from Basingstoke to Reading return.

    Due to the way the timetable/shifts are structured unfortunately I have a 39 min wait after my shift ends at Reading (this i understand is no fault of BR :D)

    Due to the present 'unsettled' work climate/locations I can only purchase daily train tickets this comes to £7 per day.

    Does that help?

    Tyger :o

    thats not a bad price though for a round journey thats 24 miles roughly in distance... though i understand the 39 min wait is a bit of a !!!!!!... but can you really state that its mroe economical by car over a year?

    Regulated fares, which include season tickets, will reduce in price by 0.4% as they are capped at RPI inflation plus 1%, based on July's inflation rate of minus 1.4%.

    Regulated fares make up about 40% of all fares.

  • Well... the train is £7 per day.

    With everything included (and i mean everything including the car, the whole years insurance, lessons, L plates down to even including £16.99 for the puncture kit and cost for HPI check) my outcoings are going to be 79.00 per month and calculated on £108.0 petrol and 58 MPG it still is cheaper... 18 miles one way...

    (though my maths is lousy lol)
