Another SoCal bee here. It takes me about 15 minutes to get to work and 30 minutes to get home. The freeway I take is almost always wide open but the streets get a little congested.

My commute is a 10 minute drive + 1 hour train ride + 10 minute walk – one way. I live an hour outside of Toronto.

Luckily my current commute is fifteen seconds since I mostly work from home I just have to drive downstairs.  My old commute was an hour to an hour and a half.  I’m also a So Cal girl too.

I live in Melbourne, Australia. It takes me 6 minutes to get to work and there’s no way I’d work somewhere more than 10mins away from home. I work 11 hour shifts so come home for my 1 hour lunch break

mrscross1020 :  45 minutes each way, with no traffic. With traffic it can be upwards of 1.5 hours. I live in MN

This morning it took me an hour and 40 mins because the bus I usually get didn’t turn up.

 

The usual 80 mins-ish commute is a walk to the bus (8 mins) then a bus to the tube station (up to 20 mins) then a tube into central london (20 mins) then change to another line (another 20 mins.)  Usually racked up to about 1 hour 20 with wait times between buses and trains and just getting in and out of the busy stations/platforms.

 

Bloody London.

I have passed out on the Northern Line at London Bridge – it can be a bitch of a commute, and exhausting to deal with every day!

My London commute is about 35mins – 15-20 minute walk to the tube station and 15 minutes on the tube to the office.  I always get on an empty carriage and have a seat so it’s pretty pleasant as far as London commutes go.

15-25 minute drive. A long commute is a waste of life.

Currently, about an hour 15 each way.  In less than two weeks, it’s going to be 20-25 mins door to door.  Woot!  I live in Manhattan.

mrscross1020 :  I’m in DC so my commute is 45 min at best, 2 hours at worst.  Usually it’s an hour/hour and a quarter (I take public transportation, so traffic isn’t an issue).  I used to live in the suburbs and had a much worse commute though, so I don’t have any complaints!  Commutes under an hour are considered pretty awesome here.

MrsBuesleBee :  no way, all the good jobs are in the city and I love my house in the burbs. A ton of people I work with have similar commutes. If I wanted a job close to my house I wouldn’t get the pay or benefits I get by working for a big company in the city.
