    I drive and it takes me 20 minutes or a couple minutes under. But where I live, it is not uncommon for people to drive 2 hours!!!! YIKES!

    I used to spend four hours a day (2 each way) on a train.. I've moved now and only spend forty minutes each way, I'd never go back!!

    35 minutes driving mostly at posted speed limits (between 55 and 70 mph) unless there's a slow down due to traffic.

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

    Oftentimes, the duration of time that I usually spend to work would greatly depend on the kind of work that I am working with. If such work requires much time, then probably, longer number of hours are being spent with such tasks, and vice versa.

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

    My housing is provided by my employer so I walk out of my house and boom! I'm there! This has been the case for the last 7 years and I can't imagine having to drive an hour or two like some of you.

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

    I used to commute 2 to 3 hours a day (depending on weather and traffic).

    I changed jobs to a job closer to home. I took a paycut but now I commute about 8 minutes each way. I'm getting ready to move to another house and my commute will be more like 15 minutes each way then. I'm half considering selling my car and riding my bike to work. I think it'd take me about 45 minutes each way (I'm not the fastest cyclist) but I'd be in a lot better health and a few hundred dollars less poor each month if I didn't have a car payment.

    I go 26 miles to work-which can take 40 minutes to 2.5 hours depending on the traffic and the number of accidents. It's the price you pay for living in DC!

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

    I have a 20 minute commute.

    I am a firm believer of nothing more then 30 minutes for a commute to work. Of course this is due to the fact that I have never had to commute any longer then that. I have been fortunate.
