So I'll be doing this Long Beach to Pomona commute very soon and I'd like help with the traffic patterns.

I do it all the time on weekends and it takes about 40 minutes, but I don't know what's it's like during rush hour.

I have 3 options:
1. 22 east to 57 north
2. 605 to 91 east to 57 north
3. 605 north to 60 east

Has anybody here taken any of these routes or part of these routes during rush hour? Which would involve the least pain?

Wow. That's gonna be really difficult. Maybe you could consider taking the metro. You would take the blue line from downtown long beach to downtown la. then take the blue line east to pomona.

Or take the 605 to the 10, 210, or 60.

I would probably just try to stay off the 5 and 91. Maybe even the 10.

I suggest leaving early for a while and trying new routes to figure out which one is fastest. Also, check traffic reports and see if you can notice patterns of which freeways are busy at which times so you'll know not to take them.

I would stay away from 605 to 60. Too many trucks.

605 to 91 to 57 is iffy.

I'd try 22 to 57.

Like jesse said, give them all a try and see what works for you. You may need to check the weather and traffic conditions daily - but either way, it won't be fun. Get an earlier start in the morning.

I feel for everyone who has a long commute. That's why I believe live near where you work.

In the last 20 years I've lived less than a mile from my employment.

22 to 57 sounds like the least harrowing commute of the three choices. At least on the 57, you're going opposite the heavy traffic in the morning.

I've commuted from the South Bay to Pomona/San Dimas for years. I recommend your 22/57 solution. If you are going to Southern Pomona (near the 60) consider the 91 to the 71.
