1-Day Bus Card Challenge!!!
1. Today’s challenge
Do you know Kyoto City 1-day bus card ?
With this card, we can take bus as many as we want in a day.
This card is worth buying if you take bus more than three times in a day since this card costs us only 500yen but bus costs us 230yen every time we ride.
So it’s really nice to buy this 1-day bus card when you see around Kyoto.
But have you ever wondered how much money can you save if you keep on riding a bus with this card?
To answer this question, I actually tried it !
※Please don’t imitate my challenge! It bothers other passengers !
This challenge only has a simple rule. I just only had to take Kyoto city bus as many as I can for 2 hours.
2. First bus
Soon after I started challenge, I took a bus at Kyoto station and got off at “Shichizyo-Nishinotoin” stop.
Looking back on my today’s challenge, I realize it was totally mistake.
Only the bus line No.50 stops at that bus stop which means I have to wait for 20 minutes.
It was totally waste of time. There is no bus which stops at Shichizyo-Nishinotoin except for line No.50.
3. Chenged my plan
I repeated the same mistake for a while. Just take a bus I find and get off at the next bus stop. However, this plan didn’t work well so I came out with new strategy.
“Taking a bus until it gets big street”
This new strategy worked well!
I found it is better to spend more time in a bus instead of waiting for the next bus at the bus stop. New strategy enabled me to take bus efficiently.
In the second half of my challenge, I could take more buses.
After all, I stopped at 11times which means I took buses 12times in 2 hours.
It costed me only 500yen thanks to the 1 day bus card but if I took buses without this card, it would cost me
230 (yen) × 12 (hours) = 2760yen!
So I could save
2760 yen － 500yen = 2160yen!
If I do this for all day long(18 business hours of Kyoto city bus),
1380 (yen) × 18 (hours) = 24800 yen
24800 (yen) － 500 (yen) = 24300 yen
You can save 24300yen in a day !! lol
Have a good trip in Kyoto with 1-day bus card ♪Tags: Experience
