    @MsTargaryen:  Love your user name ๐Ÿ˜‰

     I guess I would consider myself a telecommuter, so I have no real commute!

    It takes me about 5 minutes to get to work.

    But I’m a full time student, and it takes me about 50 minutes to commute there everyday.

    I work from home, so…5 seconds?  Haha

    It takes about 20-30 minutes for my Fiance to get to work, so I voted for him.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    It takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour one way depending on traffic. Sometimes it’s worse than an hour if there are several really bad accidents. It sucks because when we first both got new jobs in the city, we were under the impression that I would be working at my company headquarters and ended up picking a place to live that was right in the middle for me and my husband (a 15 minute drive for each of us). Two days before starting my new job, they informed me I would actually be working out at a different location which caused me to have to drive way farther. We’d already signed a lease on a town home that we loved so we just stuck with it. Oh well, I guess!

    45 minutes to an hour on 95. Hate highways so it’s not my cup of tea. Maybe one day we’ll set up shop closer to home. For now, city traffic takes a lot out of me :(.

    In the mornings it is about an hour and in the afternoons 45 minutes. Depends on traffic though. Ugh, I hate the commute. Would love to be able to work from home.

    I went from one extreme to the other – for a year and a half I commuted an hour and a half each way, now Itelecommute, less than a minute from my bed to the “office”.

    10 minutes, maybe? It’s only 3 miles away, but it’s stoplight every other foot, cross two interstates three miles. MUCH better than my previous commute when I lived with my parents – an hour and a half, ONE WAY.

    20-60 minutes depending on when I leave home in the morning and when I leave work in the afternoon. With no traffic, it’s about 20 minutes. With traffic, that’s a whole other story because often times I’ll take back routes just to avoid being in bumper to bumper traffic.
