Would be interesting to find the data on how many cross-downtown trips there are.
That is actually pretty good. Drive time is about 10-12 minutes not including looking for parking. I would agree with you if it took 40 minutes or something, but it really doesn't take that long to make that trip. Plus the stops make it easier to have a stop close to people without having to hike further distances for stops.
