It takes me literally seven minutes to get to work. WITH TRAFFIC.


My fiance works two and a half hours away. That’s on a good day. He gets up at 3 am for work!! I’m NOT happy to start married life like that!

I take public transit so it varies a lot!  Anywhere from a half hour to an hour and a half.

currently 15-20 minutes on surface streets, but once I get married 45 minutes if there’s no traffic. :

I’m about 30-45 minutes, 60 if there’s serious traffic.  20 miles.

I’m pretty lucky, for living in LA….its about 15 min in the morning, and 20-30 at night.

it’s 7 miles.  Which is a completely unpredictable amount of time in Dallas!  It’s been as short as 10 minutes to as long as an hour.  I guess average is 30 mins.

I live literally 5 minutes from work.  My office is located off the same major street as my home.  I could not do a big commute… I am not a morning person.

less than five minutes 🙂

Work is 1.87 miles from home. Straight shot.

A 10 minute walk!  I’m lucky!  In the summer it’s a 5 minute bike ride!

I live in Lakeview and actually work in Elgin. So it’s 45 minutes on a good day, 1 1/2 hours on a nasty day. 

(I don’t commute every day, though, because I go to school here.)

My office is 17km (10 miles) from my house.  It takes anywhere between 25 and 50 minutes on a regular basis.  There’s been quite a few days where it pushed an hour and a half, and a few where it took 2 hours due to snow.
