    I'm ashamed to admit I drive my car 4 miles. :eek:

    I drive about 12 miles each way. It's not too bad. Most days those 12 miles take around 14 - 20 minutes, depending on what time I leave. If I leave during rush hour, those 12 miles can take over an hour. :-(

    This is why I work 7 - 3:30. An hour before any of the mess.

    I think my commute is somewhere around 13 miles...just far enough to be a pain each day. :)

    About 4 for me as well. It only takes about 10 minutes to drive but if I tried to catch a bus it'd take at least 45 minutes.

    Zero: I walk for 10-15 minutes then get a computer controlled train to work (about 10 more minutes). I can (and have) walked the whole way. Takes about 45 minutes walking.

    I don't usually drive to work, I usually take the train. If I drive, it's about 20 miles, over an hour each way.

    I'd say about 7 or 8 one way. It's amazing how the drive in and back becomes so monotonous that you to work and realize you don't remember driving in.

    Wow...never thought of it that way. I have the news on the entire way and just arrive at work and get out without thinking about it at all. Sad.

    On the days that I drive, it varies.

    Minimal is around 10 miles. (most common)

    Maximum around 80 miles. (2-4 times per month)

    I partially work on site so mileage varies depending on the number of sites I visit, scheduling and site location. Most days are around 15 miles though some are over 80. Some days are none if I only have customers dropping off equipment to be repaired.

    For two years of college I commuted 45miles each way to school. I was also at school from 9AM to 9:30PM 4 days a week at that school for a semester with a straight 6 hour break spent in the library studying, doing homework and reading various literature (obviously I pulled a 4.0 that semester) Fridays were shorter, other semester were a more sane 10AM to 9PM 3 days per week. I always took the classes I needed for a semester no matter how much they were dispersed throughout the day.
