__Skyliner facts:__
As mentioned above, they run at 11.2 mph (5 meters/second).

At a turn station, the cabin detaches from the rope (which continues to run at 5 mps) and is pushed through by wheels for 45 meters (~14 feet) at about about 2 meters/sec ( ~ 4 mph).

This means it takes ~25 seconds to transverse a turn station.

If you took that turn station at full speed, the cabin would swing wildly to the side, but, you'd be through it in only 9 seconds!

So, a turn station adds about 15 seconds to the trip.

Now, a turn station which is also a load station like at Riviera -- which is a very bad idea since there is no extra loop for people who need extra time -- takes 2 1/2 minutes (150 seconds) instead of the 15 seconds if it was at full speed. So, that's an extra 135 seconds for a boarding/turn station.

If the turning station at boardwalk was converted into a hub, the time to go from there to AKL in a straight line, which is 3,500 meters is 701 seconds (almost 12 minutes).

A straight run from MK's bus station to Coronado is 5,800 meters. That's 1,160 seconds, or over 19 minutes.

A straight run from AKL to DAK would be just over 4 minutes. A light rail between the two at 30 mph would be just under 2 minutes.
