Just spent an hour looking at the NYC Subway maps vs the direction Google wanted me to take.

Google found the most efficient way is to take E train then transfer to R which then goes back a bit like a U-turn to get to my stop.

Then looking at the subway map, I can just take the R train... Since none of these trains are express... How the fuck did Google think that A-B-C is faster than A-C....

    Cause Google saw there was a mugging in progress and routed you around it.

    Cause Google knew there WOULD BE a mugging and routed you around it?

    Shortest distance vs shortest time?
    Also, there's going to be a mugging in the morning, you might want to get on that B train.

    @C0D4 well the point is moot now as I forgot I need to goto NYC on Monday too for a full day of appointments.

    But basically instead of the orange line. I can replace it with the yellow and not have to backtrack.

    As for getting mugged, pretty sure that's a constant but very low risk, especially during the day time... unless Google is sponsoring them...
