possible job opportunity in Culver City--seems like quite a drive, but is the commute from Burbank tolerable?

Tough commute but doable. Best option is streets. Barham to Cahuenga/Highland, La Brea or Highland south to Venice, Washington, Jefferson into Culver City. Lots of variations on these routes with the biggest choke point in the Cahuenga Pass, especially with an event at the Hollywood Bowl.

I concur that it's doable but Culver City is a very nice town. If you get the job, I would consider relocating there.

I'd avoid that commute and just move to the Westside. That's pretty rough.

that will be a very tough commute, especially if you use the 405. if you prefer the city streets, going through the pass will be rough, and so will be the east/west travel on streets like venice, washington, and jefferson.

Couldn't agree more. Don't torture yourself with that commute!

What do you love more, living in Burbank or the job you're getting? I'd either move or find a closer job. That's a frustrating commute.

Roommate goes from Studio City (near border of Valley Village) to Culver City every morning - I'd see about taking the 134 into Studio City, then taking Laurel Canyon to Sunset (and whatever surface streets you need from there). It takes him between 30-40 minutes each morning, so depending on where you are in Burbank you can probably add 10-15 onto that - like everyone else is saying, frustrating, but definitely doable.

I'd like to point out that universally, nobody is telling you to take the 405 and for good reason.

Get a motorcycle, enjoy the canyon every morning and split lanes when you have to. Problem solved and even 50% enjoyable!
