About 12 steps. This after 5 years of commuting 55 miles each way. Wore out the 50,000 mile warranty on my MINI Cooper in less than 2 years!

As short as 8 minutes to as long as almost 3 hours - I drive to different customers each day.
I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.
My idea of going "green" is winning the lottery.

Now: 5-6 miles 25-30 minutes, lots of lights, one lane roads and very low speed limits.
Last Job: 40-50 minutes for the part time job and the other was 20 minutes away
Before those : 60-90++ minutes for an under 9 mile commute. Serious Gridlock!

Down to flights of stairs approx 20 feet. I could probably make it in 60 seconds, but I usually stop for coffee.

45 minutes on public transportation, 35 if all the connections work together magically.

Mine varies from day to day as I am a supply teacher. Can be anywhere from 1 minute to 40 minutes (more if the weather is bad). I much prefer the 1 minute days I cant imagine having to commute a long distance to and from each day. I can listen and teach children all day long but I do not have the patience for bad drivers lol

45 min each way when I go to the office. When I have to be out in the field it could be up to 4 hours to my furthest store.

25-35 minutes depending on the weather and what time of day it is. When it's raining/very cold or early morning I have to drive slower because of the possibility of ice or slick roads. Noon on a sunny day I can probably get there in about 20 to be honest.
