    until or as far as?

    Is it correct to say :

    I'll drive you until the next station or I'll drive you as far as the next station

    Can the preposition 'until' be used for distance?

    Hi,

    You can use until for distances. Take the example: You can stay on the bus until the next stop. (until you reach the next stop).

    Not a teacher.

    It's more to do with time (duration) than with distance. "I'll drive you until such time as we arrive at the next station."
