From North Point in Reston, it used to take me about an hour door-to-door into my old office in Ballston. 10 minute drive to the park and ride and maybe 10 of walking on the other end.

A good hour (or slightly more) to downtown sounds about right. I gave myself about an hour and a half on the days I would have meetings downtown. I couldn't do that every day - it is soul-sucking.

65-80 minutes: is that an average for you?
My average is 45-50 minutes on I66 with two people in the car. I do what I need to do to get two people in the car to be able to utilize HOV on I-66.

The 65-80 minute time is going solo on GW parkway. The last 2 miles of the Parkway before you are able to cross the Roosevelt bridge are stop and roll every day.
