Some people take their alternative forms of transportation very seriously.
Like my Dad for instance.
But has anyone else noticed how Mapquest directions favor automobile drivers?  You can attain directions for trips via mass transportation, but as I found out, many details are omitted that can leave you stranded waiting for buses with limited schedules or underestimated walking times.  
For those of us who spend most of our commuting time on mass transportation, walking, or biking (or biking and canoeing), is the answer!
Click on your city and like in Mapquest, enter your starting and destination address or intersection, time of travel, and walking/transfer preference.  It gives you estimated travel time as well as information you didn't think you'd need!  
Though so far, your canoeing destination still might be "off the map".
