Ok, so 2.4 miles isn’t that big of a deal really. However, I had wanted to take the bus. The transit tracker application I generally use though was out of commission today.
It got me thinking, I like to always keep moving, I’m stir crazy like that. In some places I wouldn’t have had the option to walk, because the chance would be the trip would have been 4 miles, or even worse 5-10 miles. That just isn’t feasible to walk, but with the sprawl that plagues most of the US, that is the exact scenario in trying to get around.
I generally find my use of transit drastically diminished without transit tracker. Just the simplification it makes bus transfer and such adds tremendous value to using a transit system. Even when I went to New Jersey, days after they implemented theirs’ for their trains I gained invaluable timing information.
So, what would you do? If the transit tracker wasn’t working, would you just start walking? Would you just drive, bike, or go some other way?
