Magic Commute

Today I experienced a wonder in Honolulu's bus transit system. At 3:30 pm today, I was seated in a classroom in St. John on the UH Manoa campus. At 4:10 pm today, I was seated at my desk at home in Kalihi. How did this amazing 40 minutes take place?!

I will break it down:
3:30 - I leave St. John
3:40 - Ten minute walk across campus to the bus stop on University and Metcalf.
3:47 - Seven minutes later I board the #85, Kaneohe bound.
4:05 - EIGHTEEN minutes later I get off the bus at the Kam IV Shopping Center on the corner of Likelike and School!!!
4:10 - Five minute walk to my desk.

HOLY TRANSIT. Anyone who has ever had to deal with driving on the roads around downtown Honolulu and the H-1 knows that this is practically unheard of for a bus. Four o'clock traffic in and around the city is a gridlock nightmare. To get to the other side of town in under twenty minutes at this time of day on public transportation... it blows away my tiny little ape brain. Never again will I have such a short commute home. I'm weeping at the beauty of what just happened.
