    To get to school on time ... I've got to be starting up my car about 7 minutes after the hour to get to school on time ... traffic in town and on the freeway is varible ... depends on how many Red lights I get stuck with.

    Now work is same city ... Fresno ... but it's on the outside of Fresno ... about 15 minutes less of freeway - street driving.

    I basically need a solid 45 minutes of highway speed driving to get to school and work on time. Especially school ... Fresno City College is in the center of Fresno.

    I'm a driving instructor. Sometimes my first student (9am start) lives 10 minutes away, sometimes 25 minutes away.

  3. I live about 30 miles away from my work. I currently do 12 hour shifts from 7am to 7pm. It takes me less then 35 mins each way as I miss out on the rush hour traffic.

    Just to get in another post...

    My commute is 15 minutes by car (10 minutes if I get all green lights) and 40 minutes by bicycle. The bicycle ride is twice the distance though (I don't want become road kill)! I live and work in "Silicon Valley". I have co-workers who commute from 40 to 80 miles though hellish traffic, most of them are at their desk by 5:30AM to beat the traffic. They just can't justify (or afford) spending $600K on a 1,300 sq.ft. house that is closer to work.
