Walk or Bus is an online chart by the website VisualMotive which tells you whether you should board a bus or just walk to your destination so that you can reach there faster. Assuming that an average speed of a bus to be 15 miles per hour and that of a human to be 3 miles per hour, it applies the rule of thumb – “if you have N blocks to travel, you should only wait for the bus if it is less than N minutes away” to make the calculations. If you think you walk faster then there’s also a separate symbol showing the man who can walk a mile in 15 minutes.
