"CAR OR TRAIN?" - Scoring

Adding and interpreting your scores

First, a disclaimer: This questionnaire is not a scientific tool, and stock answers are no substitute for comparison shopping--or for making personal decisions based on your own preferences. If you love driving, you should rent a car even if it costs more; if you're a railfan, you'll be happier riding trains than you'd be on the highway.

Now for the scoring: Add up the scores from each question, then use the guidelines below to help you determine whether driving or taking the train is likely to be a wise choice.

Score: Your best bet:
4.0 to 6.0 Invest in driving gloves and road maps.
2.5 to 4.0 It's a tossup.
0 to 2.5 Take the train and leave the driving to Dwayne.

TIP: See the related links page for articles and other resources on driving or traveling by rail in Europe.
