Walking is competitive with the D6 bus.

According to the timetable it takes 58 minutes to go from 7th and E to MacArthur and Q. Google Maps has that as 3.8 miles for walking. That's an average speed of 3.9 MPH -- a brisk walk.

The timetable is optimistic (or even fictional). The last time I rode that route it took 90 minutes. That's not even a brisk walk. The bus runs every 20-25 minutes at rush hour, so if you have to wait for a bus it's even worse.
