Re: How long do you spend on your way to work?

I live in South Africa, and spend about an hour to get to work.....and 20 min to get back home. Traffic is a "count your blessings" initiative. However, I listen to audio books while in traffic. The time does seem shorter.

Re: How long do you spend on your way to work?

It takes me 40 minutes, I kinda like the drive I put my music on and sing my heart out which relaxes me on the way to work and de-stresses me on the way home

Re: How long do you spend on your way to work?

I spend about 50-65 minutes each way. It depends on the traffic on the interstate.

It used to be about 5 minutes..but...I have a job that I love and have had it for 23 years...then I met the man of my dreams and we are getting married in 6 months, so I have moved to him and now have the commmute.

Re: How long do you spend on your way to work?

i spend 15-20 min. walking and 8 min. on metro--not to bad for DC Metro area. My roommates drive, and it takes them roughly an hour every morning--I couldn't deal with it.

Re: How long do you spend on your way to work?

A good scooter or a small motorbike 125cc, and a good raincoat.
Or you ask professionals to equip it with a plastic roof. Don't cost that much, and means more confort.
You will save so much time.
You will save so much money.
5 times more oil efficent as a car.
And this fresh air shower every morning, gives you good mood at 9 am.

Their is this platform on the scooter, girls can drive it with a skirt.
It's like sitting on a chair.

If you really want to help the planet. If you really want to help the environment.
That's a real effort that will improve everything.
I mean the traffic congestion, the world oil consumption, the parking.
A car it's a one tone flat with four wheels, that moves a humans
that weight 75 kilos. We don't need that for comuting.

Re: How long do you spend on your way to work?

I have about a 20 - 25 minute ride on the subway, and about an 6 minute walk total. I suppose that's average for most in NYC though.
