I started a new job this week and I can't figure out a good route to take to and from work.

I live off Wilshire and La Brea and I need to get to Bundy and Olympic for work.

I've tried taking Olympic and it's a nightmare to and from work. I'm afraid to even attempt the 10.

Any other suggestions?

Yeah, I don't think you have many good alternatives as all the major boulevards are clogged at peak hour along that corridor. You could try Wilshire Blvd to Santa Monica Blvd to Bundy.

Don't think driving all the way to the 10 freeway is worth it.

Santa Monica is awful during rush hour, and although Olympic is also an issue, it does go fast when there are no traffic problems. Since you want to go to Olympic & Bundy it is your best bet. Take Houser to Olympic, and Olympic to Bundy.
The shortest distance between two points is a straight line!
Good luck!

True, but that straight line can easily top 90 minutes.

You're in a tough situation because you're going with the flow of traffic.

How about 3rd or 6th street till their terminus near Beverly Hills, then hop onto Carmelina till it merges into Wilshire/Whittier, then divert down Beverly Glen to Ohio, which will take you to Bundy...

I'm going to try this tomorrow. Where is Carmelina? I can't find it on google maps, unless you're talking about the one on the Westside?

Today, I took the 10 and it wasn't really that bad. 30 min each way, which is a huge improvement compared to my 50 min on Olympic.

Carmelina is north of Wilshire blvd in beverly hills... but your best bet is probably the 10. a 30 min commute each way for that length is totally appropriate.
