My Journey calculator

The My Journey tool gives a quick comparison of your travel options and costs.

Just enter your start and destination postcodes, or a destination name (e.g. Gloucester) and it will calculate exactly how far you've travelled. If you already know how far you travel, you can enter the figure in the manual distance option instead.

Next, select whether it’s a return journey and specify how many days a week you make the journey.

Finally, click calculate and get your results...

Your results will compare the relative costs and health benefits (in terms of calories burned) of driving, cycling, walking and public transport.

Only petrol cost are calculated – based on the cost of travelling in an average-sized family car. Remember that running a car includes other costs, including the cost of tax, motor insurance and your  MOT.
