It is intuitive that when you have a short distance to travel it is always faster to walk than wait around for a bus. But exactly how long should you wait? We decided to do some calculations to find out.
Click here to see Walk or Bus? and discover for yourself how long you should be willing to wait for a bus.
If you remember this rule of thumb you ought to get along just fine:
If you have N blocks to travel, you should only wait for the bus if it is less than N minutes away.
Of course, if you have a bike, you should probably use that instead.
