What's your work commute like? - Page 7

110 miles in the car... mad.gif and it's provoking deep existential questions (and practical ones... heart attacks and long commutes go hand-in-hand confused.gif ).

I knew a guy who commuted from Palm Springs to Burbank every day. That's 4 hrs in the car.

Yep, mine's a bit less, but no enough to matter.

In Beijing I had it easy with a 15 minute walk to the subway, 35 minute subway ride, then 13 minute walk to the office. At school, it's a very scenic 15 minute walk to campus where all my classes are close to each other. In high school, I had friends who had to catch the SIR from Tottenville to the ferry and ride the ferry into South Ferry, and take the 1 train up to Chamber st for high school. All to get there at like 8:00 or 7:30ish. I can only imagine that's nearly a 4 hour round trip commute for high school. The ones who took the express bus didn't save much time, but it was good for sleeping. I had an easy 30 minute 2/3 train ride.

In Beijing, if I felt like abusing my intern privileges I sometimes waited out rush hour and caught a quick 30 minute cab--I also left an hour or two early sometimes to skip the afternoon rush hour. Otherwise the Beijing 1 line rush hour packing is awful in the summer heat, especially if you get the train without air conditioning.

35 minutes inbound
30 minutes outbound

Bad traffic may add 15 minutes to the commute. I don't mind the travel time, but the tolls in NY are brutal.

10 minute walk and 30-40 minute subway ride depending on the Gods. My gf's father commutes from Wales to London routinely which is 4.5 hours. I don't know how he does it.

25 - 45 minute taxi ride, I do emails from my iPhone. Fares are about $6-8 one way, usually walk about 100 ft.

10 minute bicycle ride to work.

To work it is a 3-5 minute drive depending on how the traffic lights are treating me. To school it is upwards of 10 minutes. But sometimes 20 minutes to find parking.... go figure.

I feel you man. I posted on the last page. It's about 85 miles for me. I can only imagine what the extra 30ish miles would be like. Do you like your job, at least?

Thanks. I tend to think that any long commute is rough. The only saving grace is that there's no real traffic. Stop-and-go would kill me. I saw some bit on a guy that has something like a two hour one-way commute that from New Jersey into NYC. It's a short distance but pure stop-and-go, bumper-to-bumper traffic. I'd have a heart attack within a year.

I do like my job, but the commute prevents me from giving 100% to it (too few hours in the day, too wiped out at the end, etc.) and I hate that.

By bus and train: 1 1/2 hours. The worst part is that when

I get there it's a 10-minute walk (outdoors) to the place, so if it's raining really hard (or snowing)

I have to walk there in the bad weather.
