Well I'm in Devon and I have to get a bus to Exeter then a train to my work which costs me a total of £7.65 a day return journey(£4.25 for bus, £3.40 for train) soooo 20x£7.65= £153 a month

Costs will depend on your location and how far plus Devon is really inefficient with travel so alot more fiddly to get around haha

Ouch! Can you not buy a monthly or annual season ticket? That should reduce your monthly bill by quite a bit?

Unfortunately I live in a tiny village so our weird small bus doesnt do weekly or monthly or yearly tickets and the train I did have an annual season ticket but I am moving out next year close to my workplace with my girlfriend so I won't need the ticket anymore so works out better if I dont get ticket but I do have a railcard to get 30$ off my tickets as long as I get the off peak train :P

But yes great advice to anyone in general try get all the discount methods especially if daily travel

Ah I'm not too familiar with weekends but you can just check any season tickets and railcards and buses look for weekly tickets as they can be really cheap too

I used to pay £150 a month to get the train to work. Now I drive to work, which has doubled in cost but has saved over half the time with the other benefit of flexibility.

I have a monthly travelcard which costs me £148.70 a month.

TfL are raising the price to £153.60 in 2018.... Yay. The difference is about the price of a cider
