It appears to be a little under 1km. Factor in walking both ways, waiting for trains, perhaps a walk at your destination or a transfer and it quickly becomes an inconvenience.
A bit off topic, but the other day I was riding north on the pathway and was flagged down by a European fellow who was walking north between 8th and 16th ave looking for the next train station to go downtown. I told him he would have to turn around and go to the zoo, as there are no trains further north. He looked flabbergasted, like how can there be no train stations north! I guess coming from Europe he thought he could walk 500m in any direction and find one!
