    About twelve hours, I work offshore.

    The great thing is I only have to do it six times a year ( I work four weeks on, four weeks off ).

    :lol:

    I live 8 miles from my office. If I drive it takes 30 minutes if I avoid the tunnel or bridge which require toll payments and about 20-25 minutes if I pay a toll ($3 for bridge, $3.50 for tunnel). Of course if we have snow or a crash or what-have-you it takes longer.

    If I take public transportaion -- bus, 2 subway lines and a shuttle it's about 45 minutes.

    Okay, I live in Athens and it takes me too much time to get to work. It takes me almost 40 minutes becauzse this city is a mess and there is too much traffic. Plus, there is no subway near me

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

    It's about 20 minutes by car, 1.5 hours by bus, or 50 minutes biking.

    If I stay at my mother-in-law's it's 15 min walk + 10 min bus ride, 10 mins by car, or 20 minutes biking there/10-15 back(It's all uphill going there, all downhill coming back!).

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

    Interesting topic. It seems like most people live very close to where they work or very far. Not much in between.
    I never thought about it until recently, but most of my coworkers live in the same town or another town close by so it only takes them 10 minutes or less to get to work. But I live a little farther. I live about 15 miles from where I work and it takes about 25 minutes to drive there in the morning, and 30-35 minutes to drive home in the evening.

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

    In the suburb of a 14 millions people city.
    1 hour 15 minutes with the subway and bus.
    .
    half an hour with the car (if no traffic jam). Monday and friday traffic jam. One hour and something. And car is very expensive. Must pay the tickets.
    Must own a parking lot. Your nice cars get damage in this city.
    .
    Then i bought a 125cc, small motorbike, kind of scooter, 35 minutes.
    so perfect. No need to own a parking lot. no traffic jam any more. And fresh air to breath in the morning.

    If I take a bus, it's 15 minutes. But since now I'm driving a car, it's 5-10 minutes. Much faster and more convenient.

    I currently work at home. For my other seasonal job, it takes about 25 minutes to commute.

    I get through about two average length songs on my Ipod. So about 7min give or take depending on the weather and so on. I live fairly close to where I work
