I'm considering taking a job in Colton, but want to keep living in Pasadena, however I don't know much about that commute. I would be working M-F, 7A-3P most days, so would that drive just be crazy?Does anyone here make that commute, or one similar to it? I'm not new to commuting, but I'm afraid this one might just be a little too far to work, which would be a bummer and might necessitate a move

Too far for me, but you would be going against traffic. 55-60 miles each way though.

The good news is that the cost of housing may be cheaper out there.

You could certainly try it for a while and see what you think.

You're going the other way, so traffic is not a huge issue. Still got the time and mileage to deal with though.

Colton is a rough area, borderline ghetto. What job pays so well there?

You could live in Rancho Cucamonga or Redlands, and not have that commute.

Many people do the opposite commute so yours would be against traffic. Would plan for 50 minutes each way. Not bad by So Cal standards.

More like an hour and ten minutes each way.

i work in medicine, so pay is usually pretty decent everywhere. better in expensive places, but still good in inexpensive places. i have no interest in living in colton, i have considered redlands, and while it's preferable to colton, i'm not thrilled with it either. my current commute is about 45 minutes, going against traffic and i was hoping that factor (and the fact that i work 7A-3P) would work in my favor this time, but maybe these towns are just too far apart. thanks!

^^ The old minute-per-mile estimation doesn't work on southern California freeways anymore.
