I need to know from someone who commutes regularly how long the morning commute is from East Hollywood Blvd (I95) to DT Miami (Roughly Brickell/Viscaya Exit). Need to arrive @ 8:30.

Of course, I'd also need to know how long the commute is BACK to Hollywood is. Departure time 5:30 to 6PM.

I'm considering moving to E Hollywood from Kendall. The main route would be 95, but information on other possible routes would be very helpful!

Guessimates are great, but I'd really like to hear from someone who does this commute (more or less).

Thanks!!

Better commute than Miramar, but still not great. That should take you about 45 minutes (up to an hour) in the morning and 30 in the afternoon (assuming Lexus Lanes), straight up/down 95.

A friend of mine does the same commute and it takes her 45 to 60 minutes if nothing bad happens. This is in the morning (she leaves much earlier than you do in the afternoon.)

Very cool and sounds about right to me. Any other info on the commute and alternate routes would be helpful :-) Anyone using Tri-Rail from Hollywood Blvd. to get to DT Brickell/Vizcaya area?

I highly suggest you look into somewhere near the Hollywood Tri-Rail Station to take into Downtown. The commute by car is going to take you longer than if you just took the Metro. I do it all the time, I know, trust me.

Is there a specific reason why you're looking to West Miramar or Hollywood? There's many neighborhoods closer to Downtown that are nicer and much more convenient. Just a thought.

Which neighborhoods do you recommend? I want to be in between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. More familiar with Broward than Dade. Nervous about North Dade, because though there are some cool, pretty, funky neighborhoods (thinking Miami Shores) , i know there are some seriously rough ones as well...

Oh one more thing! From where do you commute and to where do you commute. Do you ever have to drive? If so how long does that take? I will have to drive probably at least half of the time (meetings etc.)

My husband commutes from east Hollywood (Lakes section) to Dodge Island daily. Assuming no accidents, it usually takes him 45-60 minutes in the morning (leaving at 7:30) and about 35-40 in the evening (leaving at 6:30-7).

When there are delays on 95, he often takes US1 or even A1A. These routes are best in the off-season, as tourists tend to clog up the roads here between Nov. and April, especially A1A Even with all the lights on US 1 and A1A, he can make it in an hour most of the time.
