Yet another pedestrians beating transit example

2013-01-24 17:44:59.206893-08 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Man vs Subway (YouTube). In which a man races the Paris subway, on foot. Note that this is getting off the subway car at one station, getting back on at another. If you have any sort of headway between trains at all, this means it's possible to beat the subway on foot over much longer distances.

See, for example, SF Muni underneath Market Street, which I used to beat on foot all the time from the Metro/Civic Center Station down to the Embarcadero Center.
