I’ve been spending a little bit of time on the road this month and the price of taxis (and transport in general) is starting to add up. In fact I commented to a taxi driver the other day that I reckon I am spending in the order of $600+ dollars per month in getting around – at which point he gave me his business card.
Given that its the end of the month I decided that I would sit down and churn through all of my taxi receipts to see what the current total is (so that I can feed it into my expense claim form). Grand total for approximately three weeks, $579.62 – breakdown:
It is kind of scary how things like this add up. I think I need to start using the tram more while I am in Melbourne, the only problem is that it can take a pretty major slice out of your day if you have a meeting smack bang in the middle
