Also, in spite of Kens best efforts, worked out over a year it's still cheaper to drive a banger than take the tube - if I had had to use public transport to get to work last year I'd have had to jack in my job because I wouldn't have been able to afford to get to it.
How do you work that out? It's only £888 for an annual travelcard for zones 1 - 2. According to the RAC, the annual average cost of fuel is £1112. Then there's tax (£100+?), insurance (couple of hundred?), congestion charge (£8 per day), parking... In fact, the congestion charge alone makes it more expensive to drive into central London, surely?
