Well, that really depends on the scheduling details. For example, how many
planes land between X and Y o'clock, determining the Y+W period when a bus
comes to pick them up, and then how well that coincides with the train
schedules, and then also factor in that some planes may carry too few
DC passengers to bother coming too early for, or some trains may carry
too many DC passengers to leave waiting too much, etc.

I guess people should start listing their most preferable schedule for
getting to places where their route is constrained (long-distance trips),
and leave the rest of the route for the shuttle organizers to work out
and suggest solutions.

There should be a deadline set for this...

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
