I know the times on Google Maps are not only estimates, but basically completely made up.

I'm trying to figure out how long it would take to actually get from WeHo to Culver City by 9am on a weekday. Google Maps suggests taking Fairfax to Venice and gives me an estimate of 22-55 minutes.

Can anyone here give me an idea whether it's closer to 22 minutes or closer to 55 minutes? Appreciate it.

Google Maps times are not completely made up if you view them in real time. They are usually pretty accurate. 22 minutes would be little to no traffic IME. I'm guessing at 8am you'd be looking at closer to 55 minutes.

People who do that commute tell me it's around 45 minutes usually.

I found Google Maps to be 5-10 minutes within range of its estimate.

Avoid Fairfax especially south of San Vicente. For some reason it's always clogged, maybe the light signals are awful.

Depending on where you're coming from in WeHo, connect to Venice from Hauser (if you're coming from the east side of WeHo going north/south, Hauser and Curson are your friends), or if you're on the west side of WeHo find a way to get to Robertson or La Cienega (south of Pico; between Wilshire and Pico, La Cienega is a NIGHTMARE).

La Peer, even though it's a short street, is a good alternative for the worst parts of Robertson. You can basically take La Peer from Santa Monica Blvd to Pico, then the part of robertson south of pico tends to move pretty well till its terminus at venice.
