As would any infrequent connection, esp. on suburban routes that often operate on half-hour or even hourly headways.MichaelBug wrote:Note especially the 90-minute time limit for the two transfers within the single trip. Just riding the full length of the El would use up almost half of that by itself.
The most frustrating part is that the 90-minute window is purely arbitrary and should be fixable with a straightforward programming change. Like the Key's price points that don't correspond to an integral number of trips, it seems that the 90-minute limit doesn't have any rationale except possibly extracting extra dollars from riders. FWIW, my (admittedly anecdotal) experiences on other systems are that most offer a full two hours.
