I'm very lucky and I can walk to my office, which takes me 20 minutes; 15 if I hurry.

Oh, and how do you travel? With a car? Transit?

30 minutes by car, on average (meaning no major backups). The way back home is often longer, though - sometimes an hour or more.

45 minutes by bus, but without the stress of dealing with other drivers. I've been taking this option 2-3 times per week as of late and I found it improves my mood at work.

About 30 minutes. That's interesting, I can go to work by bus and by foot and I spend the same time for these roads. It is obtained because I have bus stop far from my home.

being able to walk to work is awesome!

I am 20 min drive.

The best I ever had (other than working from home for a year) was 2 miles to the bus stop, bus was a straight transit with nice chairs you could sleep in, and the bus stop was directly in front of the office.

right now 30 minutes

But in August I'm moving closer to work and will be less than 2 miles from my office. So I guess that's like a 5 minute drive?

usually around 25 min by car. tend to drive back roads in my town rather than the main thoroughfare as there is waaaay less traffic and stoplights. i'd rather it take longer and be a relaxing drive.

usually around 25-30 mins from home to work and 35-40 on the way home (by car) depending on traffic. I need go over a large river which only has a few bridges going over it so if there is a accident on any one of the bridges that effects traffic going the same direction as me it causes crazy congestion on all the other bridges and drastically slows things down. luckily this doesn't happen very often.

I live 4 miles away from where I work and I takes about 20 mins to cycle everyday. Although my bike was stolen last week so I'm walking at the moment which takes 50ish if I get move on. I could get a bus but they are expensive and unreliable.

I work from home, and when I'm not working from home I'm flying to to where my client is. The last four weeks I've worked from my home office. Before that I spent a week in Hong Kong. Next week I'll spend a week in Toronto. The airport is about 35-40 minutes from my house.

It's pretty cool. I get to do the kind of high level IT work that I'd get to do if I worked internal IT for a large company, but without dealing with most of the politics of working for a large company or worrying about getting bored doing the same thing everyday. The longest I've ever spent with one client was a year, but that's pretty uncommon, especially in my current role. These days it's more like a month or two at most, with a couple weeks at the least. Plus if I ever get tired of what I'm doing for clients there are a lot of directions that I can move within the organization, but honestly Cloud is ridiculously fast-changing and dynamic so it's hard to imagine tiring of "Cloud" consulting when every 6 months something pretty significant changes. If I changed "majors", so to speak, it would be on me to become enough of an expert in whatever technology I want to move towards to justify the $300+ an hour bill rate that my company charges for my time. The nice thing about that is that my personal compensation is pretty generous because I'm a billable consultant, so every hour I work for a client is money that my company is making.

Edit: I just realized this wasn't the thread I was thinking it was. This one's about commute. lol

Normally, I'm an early bird guy who loves to get up like 5:30am in the morning to get dress and heading out the door at 6:00am. Now then, at times, I gotta be a work by 7:00am or just 10:00am. If I got to be there by 7:00am, I'll drive to work and it takes me like 45 mintues to be at the building parking deck. I like to leave early so I can avoid heavy traffic after 6:30am.

If I have to be there at 10:00am, I just take the bus which is totally nice because by riding, I save gas and energy and most of all, I can catch up with morning news through my mobile or at times, just play my Nintendo Switch since I mainly use the Switch handheld mode more so. Oh and takes me an hour in a half to be at work.

If you wanna know, I live in a City.

15 minutes by bicycle. I'd actually prefer 30 minutes, as bicycling is pretty much my only exercise and 15 minutes is not enough.

I have two part time jobs. The first, it depends, as I work as a labourer and it depends where the job site is, so usually 15-20 mins. The other I do from home, so about two metres from my bed.

Fifteen minutes by car. I share with my old housemate (his house is still only round the corner) so we take it in turn to drive. Even better when the kids aren't at school and the traffic is less

Used to take me 2 hours and 45 minutes total per day. It was a painful process, and taking the train this long in a day mean lots of Pandora music. I think i did like 17K hours in music last year, lol ..
