Day 19 Activity 1


Planes / Trains / Automobiles...
Train – 25 minute ride; no stops along the way:
$12 for the trip (return) $0.24 per minute of transport.
The train is the fastest and as it is only 25 minutes, which really is not a long ride, and almost like a usual ride to school for me.

Bus - 45 minute ride; two stops along the way to look at interesting villages:
$8 for the trip (return) $0.08 per minute of transport.
I don't really like having to stop because I just want to get to where I'm going...this is also just under double of the train ride.

Scooter – 1 hour ride; unlimited number of stops: $5 for the trip (return) $0.04 per minute of transport
Now this is just a ridiculous amount of time to get to where I need to get too...and I'm not old enough to drive a scooter!
(Unless it's one that you have to manually push with your feet?!)

Bicycle – 2 hour ride; Unlimited number of stops: but there are some (steep) hills along the way:
$1 (return) $0.00 per minute of transport
This is not really an appropriate mode of transportation because it will take 2+ hours just to get there, and then 2+ hours to get back, so in total it would be over 4 hours because of all the stops...not to mention the physical energy required.

I would choose to take the train because its the most efficient mode of transport in context of time/ duration but not the most economically viable in terms of cost effectiveness.

Hi Harrison,

These are very well explained answers. You have gone above and beyond what the question asked this time.

Great work!
