Today I decided to go on a bit of an adventure and walked from my house to the san leandro library and then took bart to downtown Oakland for lunch and then took the bus home. I didn't time it but the whole trip didn't seem to take that long, more importantly I found the whole experience rather pleasant and relaxing.

You've clearly never used the bus system in Austin.

For any trip connecting two points more than a block apart, you're looking at at least an hour, if the buses go anywhere near both of them at all, which is a big if. If you needed to go across town, or to the airport or something, more like three hours, once you get to the bus station.

I can't imagine how anyone actually uses the buses as part of their daily life. It barely beats walking, and is a hell of a lot slower than riding a bicycle.
