    45 minutes on a good day. Upwards of 2 hours on a bad day (think *normal* winters in Upstate, NY). Thankfully Darling Husband and I work for the same company so we get to make the trek together. We used to have a shorter commute when we were living only about 20 minutes away but we moved farther north to a much better area so now our commute is longer.

    My commute is a 20-25 minute (depending on the shoes I’m wearing) walk to work. It has been amazing. We moved out of the suburbs and moved downtown near to both of our jobs. I wish we could stay here forever, but we are currently house hunting back in the ‘burbs near our families. It has been awesome, though!

    I’m about 15 minutes via bus & a short walk.  It’s about 25-30 minutes when I walk home.  A short commute is very important to me and I am grateful I have one!

    I live 3 miles from campus. It’s wonderful.

    @shooting_star5711:  I use to live in Carbondale! My Darling Husband and I met at SIU. 

    Mine is 35-45 minutes depending on the traffic. I am ready for a reduction.

    30 in the morning, cant get there under 30.

    30 or less in the afternoon depending on when I leave, although it has taken up to 45.

    I didn’t vote… My commute is over an hour each way. It’s public transportation though so as long as I get a seat I can read/blog/play games on my iphone… 😀

    It’s okay, but I am hoping to one day have a shorter commute!

    I wish there was an option for over an hour. I live in Chicago and commute to the suburbs. My commute is anywhere from an hour to two hours depending on traffic. It’s been averaging 1:15 minutes lately. It’s 25 miles, btw.

    I have a 10 minute walk!  So pleasant to get exercise and fresh air after being in the office all day!

    It varies from 35 minutes with no traffic to an hour and ten minutes with traffic. An average of about 45 minutes.

    Back & forth to work is about 20-30 minutes (ridiculous because it is like 6 mi away)
    But I am in school 3 nights a week and it is an hour drive each way!! Which SUCKS. Especially since our teacher has been letting us go after a freaking half hour!! Yell 

    Sorry-had to vent real quick lol!!

    I’ve been out of work since December but my commute was 45min-1hr…but in this area, I was lucky to have a job in my field at all…but I didn’t realize how much time it really takes out of your day to commute so far!
