Hey Calgarians, has anyone ever actually tried to get to the airport using public transit?

Turns out my parents aren't in town next Thursday on that day when I need to get to the airport by 7 am. Originally I was planning on driving there and letting my parents grab the car on their way home from their trip except now they're driving instead of flying.

So, I'm thinking that the $2.50 bus far would be much more economical than the $60 cab ride, but I don't know if it's actually a feasible trip.

Anyone?

Also, does anyone know how to restore a file when you've accidentally said 'yes, replace this file with the newer version' and you really, really didn't want to?

I don't know how feasible it is that early in the morning.

It's doable. The 430 leaves Crowfoot Station at 5:52am, and arrives at the airport at 6:55am. calgarytransit.com has a handy trip planning option :)

Wanna sleep in my guest room Wednesday? I'm only at 25 minute walk away if you're slow; probably 20 minutes given how fast you walk.

Er. That's a 25 minute walk away from Crowfoot Station.

Sorry, my flight leaves at 7. I have to be there by 6. There's a bus that leaves from Whitehorn station that will supposedly get me there at 6:10, which is probably early enough provided the connection works properly. I don't know how early the train starts running though; the website doesn't say.

Your trip has 2 transfers and will take 1 hour[s] and 20 minute[s]. Depart 4:46a from stop SB @DALHOUSIE STN on Route 201. Arrive 5:01a at stop EB 7 AV@8 ST W STN. Transfer 5:04a at stop EB 7 AV@10 ST W STN to Route 202. Arrive 5:29a at stop NB @MCKNIGHT-WESTWINDS STN. Transfer 5:41a at stop EB WESTWINDS DR@W OF CASTLERDG BV N to Route 100. Arrive 6:06a at final destination stop EB @AIRPORT TERMINAL.

Seems to get you there by 6:06am. Don't know if it's the same one you were planning on taking.

Thanks. Yeah, that's the same one I was looking at but the timing's a tad bit tight for my liking.

You can't get saved-over files back unless you had a backup server with old files on it. I nearly lost weeks of work on my MRP, the day it was due, from doing the same dumb thing.

If you have to be there at 6, I could give you a ride if you want. I don't mind and it would be faster and easier for you.

It's retardedly early and not exactly on the way to work for you. I was thinking of asking Nikki because she sort of needs to head in that direction anyway ...

Fair enough. Ask Nikki and if she can't do it let me know.

Nikki has agreed to take me :D Thanks so much both of you for being awesome enough to offer.
