hello there!
Anybody commuting to Richmond on a daily basis? Looking for someone who can take turns driving to Glen Allen/innsbrook/Shortpump area on a daily basis here fromNorfolk/VA Beach/hampton roads. Would like to car pool with a clean / non smoker. I currently leave Norfolk around 6~6:30 to reach work around 7:30~8AM. Leave work around 4:30 to reach home around 6PM. However my hours are very flexible and we can work something out that is mutually beneficial.
Looking for someone in the hampton roads area (Norfolk, VA beach, Newport news, Hampton and even Williamsburg is fine) where we can take turns driving to Richmond.
I am sure there is some one out there in this forum that commutes to Richmond or known someone that does it. With the increasing gas prices i am hoping that through this forum we can get together and figure out how we can reduce the toll it takes on our cars everyday to do this long haul.

100 miles the tunnel to boot. That's what you call hardcore right there.

Yeah!!
I am hoping there is some one else out there who wants to carpool so it becomes easier. Read in a couple of postings earlier of folks who are car pooling. Would love to join if i can connect with them.

That commute is not sustainable. Take it from someone who has lived in both areas and is very used to driving back and forth. Especially to/from the West End rather than Downtown Richmond. Driving from Hampton to Sandston would be one thing but this commute seems crazy. Cost of living is cheaper in Richmond anyway.

Hey HRCommuter, can you tell me how long it takes you to get to the Jefferson Ave exit? I'm thinking of moving to Richmond in a few months, but am still trying to weigh the driving time against the quality of living.

I wonder what kind of job you have in Richmond that justifies that mess?

Hello cw4il
From Glen Allen coming east it takes exactly an hour to get to Jefferson Avenue on a normal day without any congestion at Ft. Eustis. Add a buffer 20 minutes on a worst day congestion.
From Norfolk going west to Jefferson avenue takes 30 minutes. Hope this helps.
