I work downtown and I am looking to purchase my first home somewhere in W or NW Houston. I found a house in the Jersey Village area (Winchester Country Trails), and was hoping someone could let me know what they think about the area in general (prices, schools, etc.), and what I can realistically expect the commutte to downtown to be like for an 8-5 job.

Thanks.

Jersey Village is a great area. I grew up in Cypress a few miles northwest of Jersey Village. Both areas are zoned to Cypress Fairbanks ISD which is a very good school district. The commute to downtown will be a nightmare for you. Expect an hour commute to downtown and a hour and 15 minutes back to Jersey Village. The prices in Jersey Village will be a little cheaper compared to the suburbs a little further out.

Thanks for the heads up... is there any good park and ride alternatives to cut down the commute time, and how long does the park and ride generally take? I think i can handle the 45 minute commute, but an hour plus sounds pretty terrible.

There is a park and ride at west road and 290. That will drastically cut down the commute time. You will be under 45 minutes if you take the park and ride.

I personally would not back track on 290 to West Rd. Take the Park & Ride at West Little York IMO.
