What's your work commute like? - Page 6

post #76 of 110
Bumping an older thread...

Right now I'm commuting around 35 minutes each way to work. The traffic's not horrible at all. I started looking for a new place closer to work but they tend to suck. I don't mind driving for 35 mins each way but the thought of having to do this for an extended period of time is not pleasant. Last summer I commuted 1 hr 15 mins each way and it sucked.

Please advise.

5 minute drive to train station.
1 hour train ride.
10 minute subway ride.
30 second walk to work.

this is only temporary as i'm currently living with my parents as i look for a permanent place.

My commute is now a one mile drive. bounce2.gif I could walk, but parking is so bad that I need to put my car in the parking garage near the office. Can't leave it in the metered parking during the day.

5 minutes if you drive, 17 if you cycle, 40 if you walk...

For me it's only a 1.8 mile commute, but still takes me about 25-30 minutes via bus. Will walk on nice days.

Hour and 45 each way. I carpool from WInston Salem to Durham. Almost 6 months.

75 minutes when traffic is low, when there's a lot of traffic, prolly about 90 minutes. Needless to say, im striving to work more from home. Luckily my boss thinks this is a good idea too.

It kind of sucks, but I get some extra sleep in the morning on the train and get to read some news on the Subway. On my way back home, I get to read a book or take another nap. It's annoying that I'm not able to do more productive things with this time, but it could definitely be worse. The expense is a bit of a killer, though. $3288 yearly for the train, which $2760 is tax deductible. Unfortunately, I guess that's just life in Long Island.

Well, no more subway. Now it's a 15 minute walk, so it's pretty much the same hours. Oh, and my monthly got bumped up to $300 per month, still only $230 per month is tax deductible. frown.gif

Still beats driving. smile.gif

If it's a good day, then it's a commute from my bed to the desk in my spare room or, even better, my couch and my laptop.

Not a lot of those days recently unfortunately.

1:15 minutes. Should only be about 50-60 minutes but I have to go through 2 small towns and that slows me down quite a bit.

10 minutes if I'm unlucky with lights. 6-7 if I'm lucky.

Looking to purchase a decent bicycle at some point so I can cut out the need for a car during the nicer months.

My office is less than a block away and it takes 175 steps from the back door of my house to the front door of the office. So about 90 seconds.

10 mi. commute.

20 min mornings
15 min afternoons

it's not bad... i live pretty far away from friends in the metroplex, but i don't really do much on the weekdays anyway so i don't really have a huge downside.

i was skimming through a few of those... how the hell do you guys do 1+ hour commutes? i would hate to do anything more than 30...
