Hi All:

Going to be working in Santa Ana, but Long Beach is far more affordable. I know during non-traffic hours, the commute is about 20-30 minutes. How long would the commute take if I was to leave Long Beach for Santa Ana at 8:00 am and leave Santa Ana to return to Long Beach at around 6:00 pm? I live in SF now and worked in Contra Costa. I always enjoyed the "reverse commute" factor. Would there be a reverse commute ease of traffic in those directions?

A friend of mine said the commute is 1 hour and 30 during rush hour. But thus far, the most google maps has said is 52 minutes.

Thanks,

Joel

Your friend is exaggerating. 45-50 minutes max.

From where in Long Beach to where in Santa Ana? At rush hour it could take 30 minutes to go from 5th & Euclid in Santa Ana to Grand and Dyer in Santa Ana.

Long beach is a huge city. Drastic difference if you're by el dorado park vs say bixby knolls. Well not drastic, but probably 15-20 minute difference.

I'm looking at apartments on Bay Shore (300 block) and my job is on the 900 block of N. Ross. You guys are making me feel much better about it. It's only 20 miles, so I was shocked to hear it could take an hour and a half. 45 minutes is far more doable.

From LB I would take 7th St. to the 22 Garden Grove FWY and get off on The City Drive or Bristol. Do not use the 5 freeway at all, The City Drive or Bristol are quicker options. The 405 fwy. will take you too far south of your location, 22 makes more sense for your commute.
