80% of the time I take the L, takes about 35 minutes. Other 20% of the time I take an express bus cause I can get a seat, but that takes around an hour.

I drive 35 minutes to Lansing, Michigan.

Fortunately for me, I actually cover about 40 miles during those 35 minutes. I literally spend about 30 seconds of those 35 minutes stopped in traffic. Very easy commute.

I've always wondered how people can stand to commute 5 miles or something and have it take 35 minutes, with most of the time spent parked in traffic. That would drive me crazy.

Still with an automobile. The average time is about 20 minutes, but it also depends on where my latest meeting takes place.

Bus. 15 minutes. 10 if you drive, but seeing as my house and schoo are right on the same line, that'd be pointless.
