I'm about a 7 minute car ride to and from work. It's a fun back road drive too.

I have commuted for work over an hour away before. I have to say my life is far less stressful without having to commute everyday. I personally hated it.

Some jobs could allow people to work from home if they want instead of forcing them to drive 30-50 minutes to work. You can track people using computers when they are logged in so there's no need to come to work anymore


pretty much. Work, sleep and play in my office. I have a queen size mattress + 47 in tv+ game consoles +1 computer desk + 6ft table+ 3 ft table the office chair in the middle of everything

I think it should be a trend. Jobs that can have people working from home should be allowing the employees to take that option-- i'm sure the climate change supporters will love the idea as well-- less cars on the road! I bought a new car around March 2017-- it's already August 2017 and i have yet to refill the car!! 5 months later and i'm still in the "break in " period (600 miles -- the car has 301 miles on it at the moment)

Like maybe 5 minuets, with traffic, driving. I ride my bike when I'm up to the challenge, but it's a busy road with no bike lanes and people don't respect bike riders.

You might have problem when you try to sell this car-- people might think you rolled back the odometer for having such low mile on the car ...:sweatingbullets: unless they brought a mechanic with them

low mileage vehicles will have the condition to match if you know about cars

I don't plan to sell the car any time soon.. The car should be 1/2 the price after 3 year so the insurance and registration will be a lot cheaper + so having a low mileage car is a plus

I go plan to do more on site assignments so i can put more miles on it soon. Working from home has its pros and cons

30-40 minutes too work. With heavy traffic it can take an hour.

25 back home. It's late at night and nobodies on the road.

Eek. I remember when I was a manager for a small business and had to be there at 6am. It was an hour commute and that was rough at times. I can't imagine an hour and a half!


I'm pretty used to it by now. A friend of mine is a DJ and always gives me new mixes to test out while I'm on the road. Also, the long drive gives me time to gather my thoughts and center myself before I have to deal with the usual workday annoyances.

That's good. It probably gives you time to unwind on the way home too. Must suck in the winter though. I see you're from Michigan?

I have to admit that the winters can be kind of a challenge. I've lived in Michigan all my life, so I've grown accustomed to winters around here. As long as I prepare properly the evening before work, it isn't that bad. I do hate scraping ice off the car, though.

The average is half an hour, though it depends on where I'll live starting this year. Used to be about 5 minutes on bike, then went to 40 minutes when I moved, and I'm not sure where I'll be going now, so who knows how long

Just curious.

I am gone from my home from 6:15 am - 6:15-6:30 pm Monday through Thursday. I spend on average, 40 minutes just driving to and from work. Of course, the time will differ depending on traffic, accidents, and weather in the winter.

If you have to commute to work or school, how long is it?


leave at 4:30am and get home around 7:30 pm.
I use public transportation and sometimes uber. Usually its takes an hour and 40 mins to get to work or home on the bus.
