I use to walk a few blocks, but since my company had to move to a hellhole exurb of massive urban sprawl (aka Wexford, Pa, the most irresponsibly developed area in the country), I have to drive my car 20 miles each way a day.

I either take an express bus or the L depending on what I'm feeling that day. I like to switch it up when I get bored.

I drive about 50 miles round trip, 3 days out of the week I carpool with my boyfriend (the other two days, he has evening classes in college so he drives himself) and the other two days I carpool with a friend who works down the street.
