Why I Drive

This is a cool site - Mapnificent.  I saw this a few months ago and have been looking for it ever since.  You give it a starting point and it will show you everywhere you can get by public transit in a timeframe you select.  So I live on one side of Federal Way and work on the other.  It's less than 7 miles.  About 14 minutes to get to work, 20-24 to get home.   

It I slide Mapnificent out to its furthest (175 minutes), I can get to the far reaches of the map - Snoqualmie, Enumclaw, Everett, Tacoma (it only covers King County transit options, apparently) but I can't get to my workplace in the same town.  Despite the fact that there's a bus stop right across from the campus.
