Is it on an urban/metro-type network ?
First to 100000 in the 2015+ Tumbleweed contest. Winner of a few rounds of a diverse range of quizzes/games. Some decent times in alternative challenges as a fiftysomething who merely walks briskly.

It can't be served by Eurostar because it's not served by Southeastern, but otherwise it's a good question.

This one is so easy in comparison.
All London buses: 23 hours 25 minutes (with Adham, David, Josh and Tangy)
Holds some alternative challenge records. Not sure which ones.
