What is the commute like from Hudson to Waltham? I'm thinking of relocating there.

I wouldn't think it would be too bad. Maybe 45 minutes. I'd take Main St > Sudbury/Hudson Rd > Rt 27 > Rt 20. It seems like it'd be slow going but I bet that's a faster route than going on major highways. My friend lives in Hudson and commutes to the Sudbury/Wayland line and takes that general route to work and said it's pretty easy.

Depending on where in Waltham you need to go... you may want to avoid Rt20 at certain hours. There are options of going Rt117 or Trapelo Rd.

The key is when you need to be at work... earlier the better...

You are talking about 35-60 minutes depending on traffic for the 20 miles.

I agree. It all depends on traffic. I can do it in about 30-35 minutes without traffic, up to 55 with traffic. The good thing is there are plenty of back roads that don't get too congested.

NO! Quite frankly, I've gotten so much great info from the Virginia board (we are locating), that I thought I'd try to be helpful on the MetroWest board.

Oh well. The info my not help the OP's, but if someone does a search at least they'll get the info.

Thanks for clueing my in.

I live in Hudson and used to commute to work in Waltham, my office was in Wyman st. I live close to Hosmer st in Hudson and it used take me 35 mins, but I used to avoid rush hour traffic. I used to commute after 8:45AM and after 6PM in the evening. Rush traffic is worse and rt20 is the worst. At any time I would say you should avoid it, it has too many signals and too much traffic. I used to take main st(hudson) which becomes sudbury rd in stow and I think hudson st in Sudbury, it's just a straight road. It is a single lane road and the first signal you hit will be in Sudbury, take pantry rd to get to rt117. On 117 keep going until you go past Rt126 junction, on the left you will see Lincoln st and it will get to a 5-way stop sign, there take trapelo rd. This route is very fast in the sense that there isn't much traffic most of the day and it has very few signals but the highest speed limit is 40mph. Hope it helps.
