Please add an optional Walking Speed parameter (miles/hour) to the TriMet Trip Planner API. This feature would enable users with physical impairments (or those walking with small children) to tell TriMet to plan connection times that they can successfully walk to in time.

For example, the Munich, Germany transit trip planner Android app (http://www.mvv-muenchen.de/de/fahrplanauskunft/mobile-dienste/efa-app-mv...) lets the user enter a walking speed of slow/normal/fast (which begs UI questions of what "slow" is - I'd prefer a miles/hour in the API).

Thanks.
