My husband's is about 75 mins each way, as was mine when I was working. Quick drive to train station, train, then walk or subway to office.

But he does sleep in the city maybe two nights a week, so that helps.

About an hour depending on traffic, but has taken me up to 2 1/2 hours on occasion. About 45 miles.

About 2 hrs one way daily - I leave the house usually by 4 am and depending on the day I am usually home by 6 pm.

It's not so bad in the summer but these winter months can be brutal.

35 minutes-it's 27 miles. No traffic. Nice peaceful country roads, I like the drive, but not in the winter, if it's snowed can take up to an hour and it's scary!! I stay home if it's too bad. That's about the longest commute that I'd want. Wish I worked closer to home sometimes!

30-35 minutes even though it's not that far. I have to go through a lot of traffic lights.

It was an hour and a half one way.

But for the past 7 years it's been oh about a minute or two. However long it takes me to walk down the stairs to my basement. LOL
