just one day, so take it with a grain of salt, but I left City Hall today at 5:30. Was at Garth and Fennell by 5:35 and Garth at the Linc at 5:37.

I was expecting a 10-15 minute drive at that time of day (which would be an insanely easy, quick commute in a city).

Nope. 7 minutes. Am I crazy in thinking that shouldn't even be possible?

Using the #35 College bus from James and Hunter to Garth and Garrow we get a trip time of 22 minutes. Although I imagine it's a few minutes longer during rush hour as it becomes crush-loaded between downtown and Mohawk College.

Add some walking time at the start and end of the trip, and it's easily a 30 minute commute.

The only reason a city councillor should be posting pictures of 8 single-occupant cars waiting to turn left is if there is a bus with 75 people being held up by the 8.
