By now, you should know that refining meshes is important for getting an accurate result for the problem specification. For Transients, time becomes a similar refinement problem in addition to the mesh refinement.
As an example, here is a plot of time at x= .5, with the timesteps altered.
Here is the data for the numerical solutions:transient 2D.xlsx
