My husband commutes from Griffith, IN to LaGrange, IL every day and his commute is only about 45 minutes. His work buddy commutes from Joliet, IL (about 10 miles closer to work) and his commute is a little over 1 hour. What roads you travel on has a huge impact on your travel time.

I used to work in the Loop and my commute was about an hour total. The train station is only about 5-10 minutes from my house and the train would take me to 3 blocks from my office building. And thankfully the pedway took me most of the way from the train station to work so I wasn't walking too far outside in the winter.

My commute is about 2 hours and 15 minutes each way door to door. I live in Valpo and work downtown. I'm still not convinced the money savings is worth the 13 hour days. Our place in Chicago was 4 miles from downtown. I've been doing this for just over a year. Summer wasn't as bad but winter is pretty darn awful. Especially when I get home and have to shovel every night after risking my life driving (sliding) home on 49.
