I was wondering how long and how far some of us NJerseyans drive to work, from what town or county to what town. What time of the day and what days is also very important. And as someone else said no company helicopter times or driving 140 MPH going thru red lights LOL and why if you want also post. I'll start with myself, I live in the northernmost part of Ocean County and work in Jersey City approx. 60 miles. If I leave on Mondays thru Fridays before 6AM it takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes. If I leave after 6:30AM all bets are off it could be anywhere from 1 hour 20 minutes to sometimes close to 2 hours. I also work weekends as I prefer because I miss most of the commuting traffic. My personal reason is I love the beach 1 mile away and I enjoy to boat and fish in Barnegat Bay. IMHO the schools were great for the children not anymore as they are off to college. Does it work for me, yes, does commuting stink, yes, sometimes I laugh when one of my co-workers who lives in Toms River says it takes him 45 minutes to get to work. I guess he borrowed the chopper. LOL Youall have a nice day now. Jersey Man

I worked in Bedminster and lived in Woodbridge. I left the house at 6am, and was typically at the office by 6:30 (26 miles, mostly on 287). If I tried leaving at 6:30, it was 45 minutes, and if I left at 7, it could be an hour and 15 minutes or more. The evening commute was typically around 45 minutes if I left at 4:30. Leaving at 5:00 was an hour minimum, and could go over 2 hours in the summer- especially on Fridays when everyone was heading to the shore.

I live in Lake Hopatcong and work in West Caldwell...it's all of 23 miles
I use Rte 15 to I80 to Rte 46 to Bloomfield Ave....it takes any where from 45 minutes to an hour PROVIDED it's not raining, the sun glare isn't to severe or the worst ...an accident

In the summer months takes about half an hour unless one of the above underlying factors plays in

Western Morris County to Monmouth County - 61 miles. Mornings about 1.5 hrs (leaving at 7:30), Evenings about 1hr 15min (leaving around 6pm). This is 2 days a week. The other 3 days are a 5 second commute - bedroom to home office, lol.

About an hour and a half door to door right now, to be two hours shortly.

EDIT: Thats from Westfield to midtown, soon to be High Bridge to midtown. High Bridge adds an hour, but I won't be walking to the train station anymore (as I'll actually be able to park), which cuts out 20-30 minutes

When I lived in Medford, I commuted to Lakehurst, through the Pine Barrens. This was arguably the most desriable commute in the history of New Jersey
(Not the reason I moved obviously) it took about 40 minutes (32 miles one way, two traffic lights, mostly through a beautiful area. Evenings took a little longer, as this was a big retirement area, and there were older people on the road during that time of the day as opposed to early morning. However, prior, I had one of the biggest ball-busting commutes of all time: 50 miles from Mount Arlington to Fort Lee. I only did that for one year. If I had to do it for another 2 years I would have sought psychological counseling.
