You are trying to get to class on time using the Shuttle. You are later than usual getting to the stop. You are running as fast as you can, but 30 meters ahead of you the shuttle begins to pull out. You can run at a maximum speed of 8 m/s and the shuttle is accelerating at 1 m/s2. In 50meters you will reach a barrier. Can you catch up to the shuttle?
