Does anyone know the average commuting time from West Los Angeles (LAX/Culver City area) to Northridge?

I am getting a lot of job leads from Northridge, but I am not too sure I want to commute this far considering the current gas prices and just the every day commute in general.

My friend lives in Hawthorne and commutes to Northridge. Her commute is a half hour if she leaves around before 8 I believe. Theres not much traffic going north on the 405 in the morning, that I know of.

The chances a person would make it from Hawthorne to Northridge in 30 minutes are Slim and None, and Slim has inoperable brain cancer. Google maps says 40 minutes in no traffic (like 3AM), 1:50 in traffic (that actually sounds too high). Count on 1:15 to 1:30 hours in reality.

The original poster should live in Northridge, or if Northridge is too boring or something like that, consider living along the Metrolink....otherwise it is too much driving. Nothing wrong with Northridge except that it is pretty suburban. CSUN is there but CSUN is probably in the top ten most boring universities in the world.

I used to commute from playa del rey (south of west LA) to castaic (north of northridge) in about 45 minutes leaving my apartment around 6:30am. i think 30 minutes can be done if you leave at the right time. however, the 405 is a terrible freeway! it will clear up north of sunset in the mornings, but your drive home will take a long time. I also used to commute from van nuys back home to playa del rey and that would be about an hour in the evenings, just to give you an idea. its stop and go from getty center drive (if you're lucky) all the way south past LAX.
