Still, depending upon where in Cranberry I'd say it could be less. The mileage is less. If you are commuting at off times, the speed you can do coming down from Cranberry may make up for that.

If you are commuting at rush times, eh, I'm not familiar with Rt 8 rush but I still think you might shave a little off the current Cranberry time. Now once that bridge construction is done the Cranberry time should go back to being the same or perhaps a little better than the Gibsonia time.
Yes, Bakerstown is pretty far out. That makes a difference. I am guessing the commute times would be close, but not sure. Cranberry is pretty fast considering how far away it is. I used to drive up there quite often for a sport I used to play. I hated the drive because it was so far, but drive time was pretty fast. Just racked up too many miles on my car.

That location is a bit further down than me by a couple of miles but the extra distance is where traffic lets up alot. Route 8 is a slow drive--as I said stop and go. For me I would rather go the distance at a steady speed and would opt for Cranberry. I really grew to hate the commute after about 18 months. But the work on 28 is and will help alot. If you are buying--then by far Cranberry due to taxes. But distance and commute Again I say it is a toss up.

Thank you for any responses!
Where exactly are you going downtown?

We keep going on comparing the other two, but I'd go with Emsworth myself. Shorter is better. Heck, if you're going to look in Emsworth, might as well look in Bellevue. Save another few minutes. Although I guess the reason you've brought up those three is because there is some option that has drawn you to them.

I'm assuming rentals though. If you're buying, that may be different.
