I take a bus to the airport when I travel. It only runs every hour-ish (I'm 50ish miles away).
I have a flight at 10:55. Bus arrives at 10:15. Do I do it or do the 9:15 arrival?
Airport == SFO.
@Greg That's the most difficult maths word problem I've encountered this month!
@Greg I can't anwser this, because I took a bus to the airport the other day, and arrived 3 hrs early, so my expectation of bus delays must be too high.
@Greg Unless missing your flight wouldn't cause too much difficulty do the earlier one; I usually take the Marin Airporter which is sometimes a bit behind schedule in heavy traffic.
@Greg go early...if just for the stress of the bus arriving too close to gate closing time
@django yeah, I do tend to stress a bit. My usual stance is to buffer in plenty of wiggle room at each leg of a trip in case of mishaps. This usually means I'm sitting around waiting a lot, but sometimes it comes in real handy :)
Same, its also probably the only time I ever buy current affairs magazines...just for the waiting!
