Yes, but not as bad as if you were traveling west in the AM and east in the PM.
Typically it does get slow from 6am to 9am, but you can look over the divider and see others parked. You will likely make good time.

Not an expert on that specific stretch of the 210. However, I did notice in my time in LA last year that the 210 from about Pasadena east to the 15 is rather heavily travelled at all hours and especially in the afternoon hours can really bog down. Oh well, I guess this post was about as helpful as saying, "The sun shines a lot in SoCal".....

Also consider the time of day. If you can work a seven to four shift instead of an eight to five shift the commute is vastly different and can shave a great deal of time off your commute. But I concur that going west in the morning and east in the evening is the worst of the worst commute. The direction you are going is less common due to housing prices and much more desirable.

You should be fine going the opposite of traffic.

Any reason you are choosing Pasadena? Arcadia, Temple City and Glendora are much closer and nice areas. Glendora might even be cheaper housing.

I decided on Pasadena over the other cheaper/closer cities so that I could try out the "city expierience", and live right on Colorado St. downtown. After a year, we may move closer to Azusa.
