aller a pied???

aller a pied???

I answered the question "Elle a manqué le bus, donc elle doit ________." as aller a pied, but this was scored as incorrect. But the lesson tells me to use this when walking is CONTRASTED WITH ANOTHER MEANS OF TRANSPORT, which it seems to me is exactly the case here! 

What am I missing????

Bonjour Chris, 

When using "aller à pied", you are correct that it is used in contrast with another means of transport AND the destination must always be mentioned as per the explanation in the lesson. ;-)

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Hi Chris,

Did you write "a pied" but meant to write "à pied"?

Otherwise, I would agree with you.

Bonne journée

Jim
