According to NASA’s website and a video produced in 2013, it takes about 3 days from initial launch to reach the International Space Station. However, that same year, a Russian Soyuz vessel made the journey in under 6 hours.

Depending on the exact geometry of the Shuttle's orbit when it launches, it takes about two days for the Shuttle to reach the ISS.

Time and distance are the same thing viewed from different perspectives.
