People live there because it's more affordable than Austin. The toll roads are worth the money around here. Non-toll traffic is awful if you're going with the flow at rush hour, particularly on 183 north. Lots of people work in Austin and live in the suburbs.

Leander also has the train, a direct route to downtown. A one hour commute is no big deal to me if it is spent passively and not actively driving. My door to door commute is probably around an hour, but that's fine because my actual driving time will now be 12 minutes each way. The rest of the time will be spent sitting on a bus letting someone else deal with the traffic. With Wifi, one can work if that's desired.

I love my house and neighborhood, so it's worth the extra time spent. And to be clear, you can spend a long time commuting living IN Austin.

That is not an reason, but more of an excuse. The money spent driving toll roads can easily be converted to dollars towards a home closer to work. But why think logically when you can be dumb and not think.

I knew a guy that bought in Leander and then took toll roads all the way down to Facebook downtown...everyday. I tried to convince him to move to at least north Austin but he wasnt having it.
