If it is worked out the time it takes to go somewhere via transit, such as by bus, taxi, car, train, horse (and etc) and this calculation includes all the extras or parking, traffic, waiting for the bus, waiting for a taxi, saddling the horse (& etc) compared to just walking there, and the time it would take to have just walked there is actually quicker, then you have not broken the transit even point.

This concept is borrowed from business where return on investment is described as a break even point where return surpasses cost.

Transit Even Point was inspired by inner city living, where walking can be quicker than transit.
You know, it would have been quicker to just walk, this waiting around does not meet the Transit Even Point!
