I take the bus.

I'd walk more during summer, but we have to be at work at 7 AM, and the walk takes about 50 minutes. So, I rarely have the ambition at 6:10 AM.

I walk from my house 4 blocks to the PATH (it's a subway/metro), ride for 18 minutes, then walk 4 blocks to the office.

I live in Jersey City, work in Midtown Manhattan

I'm a Consultant by profession which means I have to go out to the client office instead of my home office in McLean,VA. Most of my clients tend to be in either Reston or McLean which means I drive from Silver Spring,MD to these places everyday (I hate I-495).

I'd say taxi with a twist.
