According to Google Maps the shortest walking route to our catchment area  high school is 6.8km.

 

Do distances get measured by "shortest route" or "as the crow flies"?

Either way, the distances are absurd and I fully support the kids of Victoria not having to pay to ride Public Transit.

Wow. I walked 1.5km to one of my elementary schools and it was a bugger some days. Three times that distance is huge.

But today as was the case then, there was no transit service to speak of that serviced either my route or the school.

Know it all.

Used to be shortest reasonable route.  Not sure what it is now.

Does "shortest reasonable route" account for hopping fences and cutting through hedges?  :D

I believe that's called the Ferris Bueller route.

No, but I'm pretty sure it did account for public footpaths and so forth.
