Question How many kms do you do in a month?

I thought it will be nice to know the AVERAGE number of kilometers you road travel in a month by car or bike (not including buses unless you drive them).

I personally do around 1500 kms per month.

My own driving is about 2000 kms a month. However, all our four cars combined do about 7000 kms / month.

i personally drives about 1700-1800 kms per month in NCR only.
sometimes it goes upto 2500 kms if some outstation driving is needed.

no need to mention about the driving pattern of others in the family or that of chauffeur!

As of now my office commute is about 100 meters , therefore I don't even drive to work. But I still chose 500-1500 because I figure I will do leisure driving around that much.

400+ / month that too in a city like bangalore which is very small compared to the metros. Even the taxi and autowallahs will have problems doing it !!!!

Is that a typo error ???

I do about 4000-6000 kms a month depending on work requirements. Most of this is due to my weekly travellling between Moradabad & Delhi at times I make 3 trips a week which equals to a 1000 kms in itself. Also while in Delhi my average commute even on a Sunday is atleast 100-150 kms.
