Gold Card Adventures
The Gold Card cost Ellie Harrison £912 and was purchased with the first instalment of her postgraduate award from the Arts and Humanities Research Board. After travelling 9236.6 kilometres using the Gold Card, the cost averaged out to be less than 10 pence per kilometre.

Based on the average journey from Ealing Broadway to New Cross being 22 kilometres taking 50 minutes it has been calculated that Ellie travelled at an average of 0.44 kilometres per minute. On this assumption it is estimated, that in a year, Ellie spent 350 hours travelling - that’s over 2 solid weeks out of 52!

Ellie used every single tube line during the year except for the Waterloo and City line, which she has never been on. She planned to take a trip on the Waterloo and City line as a birthday treat, but was sad to discover that it was closed for engineering works.

During Gold Card Adventures Ellie travelled on 45 of London’s 700 different bus routes. That’s just 6% of the possible routes available. 211 out of the 1495 journeys made during Gold Card Adventures were on buses that’s 14% of the total number.
