I live in San Fran and will be attending grad school at CSU East Bay beginning in the summer. I really like my place in the Outer Sunset and would prefer not to move the east bay, so i'm considering commuting 5 days a week to Hayward across the San Mateo Bridge.

According to Google Maps, this is approximately a 51 minute commute. Is this what you might call a reverse commute? I know there is a lot of traffic going INTO SF on most workdays, but is there traffic leaving SF and going the East Bay during peak hours?

Is this a "doable" commute for a student? Or will I be too exhausted doing this everyday?

Thanks for your help!

92 is so congested. It is a really packed area. You'd run into some of the commuting to the Peninsula traffic and the coming home to the Peninsula traffic. It'd be a grind in my book.

One of my friends used to commute between Hayward and SFSU area (near Sunset)...it took about 45 minutes on average for her. However, my main concern is your class schedule. I'm not sure how CSU schedules classes, but I've attended two universities and both schools I had big gaps between some classes, so you might have class from 8am-12pm then again at 4pm-6pm...so I don't know what you would do between classes.
