How much does it cost to get to the UAB?
Transport costs are a whole of costs produced when we travel, related, direct or indirectly to the displacement.
Transport costs include the internal costs paid by the user, and the external costs paid by society via taxes (accidents, air pollution, climate change, noise pollution, vibrations). The internal costs may be direct, related to the journey (fuel, lubricant consumption, tire maintenance and repairs) or indirect, related to the journey (paying off vehicles, taxation and insurance).
The time cost indicates the travel time. There are three types of time cost related to means of transport. For private vehicle take into account travel time and the access time to the network (time spent in the parking), for public transport take into account travel time, the access time to the network and the timeout (time spent in the stop bus or the station).

Results refer to intercity travel because it’s the predominant type of displacement to acces the UAB campus.
Not including the time cost (Car;0,30¤/passenger·km) (Bike;0,77¤/passenger·km) (Intercity bus; 0,24¤/passenger·km) (FGC;0,67¤/passenger·km) (Renfe;0,31¤/passenger·km)
In the case of car or bike don’t take into account the access cost time to the network, variable imply a time increase.
To calculate how much it costs to get to the UAB you need to consider:
Car: Internal costs (direct and indirect): fuel, payments, taxes, insurances…
Public Transport: Internal costos (direct): travelcard
The direct costs of private vehicle (car) are directly related to route made, while the direct costs of public transport not depend on the mileage but of the zones.
The table shows the transport costs related to means of transport. The private vehicle is the more expensive to move (although it has a cheap perception) and the more unsustainable because it’s the means of transport that more contributes to climate change, aire and acustic pollution…
