Has anyone ever done a commute from Culver City to South Pasadena during rush hour? I'm considering moving to Culver City because I'll be a grad school student at UCLA, but my husband will be working in South Pasadena. If anyone knows how long this commute might take him, please let me know!

We're also considering Sherman Oaks.

Depends what time he has to be at work. The commute on the 10 to downtown is horrible. It's about an hour from Culver City to Downtown during rush hour. Though I have taken Venice Blvd. all the way to downtown during rush hour and it took me 30 minutes tops. Once you get out of downtown in the morning, the commute on the 110 to South Pasadena is a breeze.

Afternoon it's moderate traffic to Downtown from South Pasadena. Downtown to Culver City is a nightmare, but again, Venice Blvd. isn't bad.

Culver City will save you some time to Westwood (15 min without traffic), but add to hubby's commute.

It would be bad; very bad.

He has to be to work around 7, and he'll be leaving by 4. So if he avoids highways and takes Venice Blvd, is he looking at 45 - 1 hr each way, or is it a lot more during those times?

Have you done it? Tried back roads? How bad?

Thanks!

If he leaves 6, he will likely get there by 7. Afternoon will be a mess. If he goes the back way, it'll shave time off. Though getting thru downtown is always a problem, particularly during winter with a Lakers game.

There is no real "back way" to navigate that trip home unfortunately... I mean, maybe Venice-Alameda-6th-Mission... but that will get real old, real quick me thinks. And just getting out of the west side during the afternoon can be a task.
