49ers travel schedule: Easy compared to last year

Last year the 49ers travelled 33,000 air miles in the regular season -- by far the most of any NFL team -- then tacked on another 9,500 miles in the playoffs. This year? It will seem like a puddle jump by comparison.

The longest trip on the team's regular-season schedule, which is due to be released this week, is a 5,132-mile round-trip trek to play the Giants. That, however, is their only game in the eastern time zone. What's more, they will visit the Raiders, a game that requires a 35-minute bus ride instead of a trip to the airport.

The bottom line: The 49ers will travel approximately 19,700 miles (give or take a couple hundred miles depending on whether they return to SFO or SJC). It still likely will be one of the highest counts in the NFL but will pale next to last year's itinerary.
