I am moving to the area for a job in Riverside, Ca and I think I would prefer to live in Rancho cucamonga, but I also do want to be caught in rush out traffic everyday. I also like Corona. My commute time would be around 6am and 5pm. What kind of commutes would I be looking at? What are the best areas to live in Riverside if the commutes are too much?

6am wouldn't be bad from either place (30 minutes from Rancho, 20-ish minutes from Corona, depending where you're at). 5pm you'd hit some traffic heading back to both places, again, depending what part of Riverside your job is in and where you live in those cities.

I'd live in Riverside and cut the commute entirely. If it's Corona-ish and RC-ish communities you're looking for, check out these Riverside neighborhoods: Orangecrest, Canyon Crest, or Mission Grove on the east end of town, La Sierra/Riverwalk on the west end of town.

If you're interested in something with a little more variety and older feel, check out the Wood Streets or Downtown.

Metrolink has 2 stations in Corona and 1 station in RC, both head into Riverside, which has 2 stations. Depending on location, it could be an option

Personally, I can't stand Riverside. Corona is HUGE so it really depends on what part you are talking about. The 92883 zip code will be a longer commute. Pretty much the 91 in both directions tend to suck during commute hours. Rancho will likely be more miles but less time on the road. I lived in RC for a few years and I've worked all over Corona for a year now. Overall, I'd pick Rancho Cucamonga since you don't have to drive as far to get to places within the city. However that's just me, stay away from the Circle City and Home Gardens area of Corona. With Rancho, stay above Foothill.

Compared to the rest of Corona, it sucks. Also, the homes are real old and not in a good way. All the nice looking older homes have had a ton of refitting.

So, the 91 between Corona and Riverside is worse than the 15 between RC and Corona in the afternoon?

Not in my opinion. It can be slow until you get east of the 15 but then it should be smooth sailing. Monitor sigalert.com during your commute times to see what the traffic is like.
