To be honest with you, the Murrieta side (inside the Triangle) is great. Murrieta Hot Springs road going East is hell , I dunno if that area is officially Murrieta but it's on the border and its traffic sucks. Temecula traffic always sux no matter what time of day or where. The only improvement in transit is a decade or two the high speed rail is going to be built in Triangle Sq in Murrieta (where the 15&215 meet).

I live close to the Triangle (behind the Calvary Chapel Bible College).

My biggest complaint with Murrieta is lack of sufficient transportation. Route 23 only runs about once an hour to 90 minutes, depending on the time of day and stops running at around 5:30pm. Also, it doesn't start early enough to connect to the Commuter Express buses at Walmart.

I moved here from Huntington Beach about six years ago. I feel like I'm on another planet. Being here without a car sucks.

Supposedly Temecula will be getting Metrolink in the not too distant future. That would help things considerably. But when? I'd be surprised if it happened in the next decade.

I love Temecula. The traffic has eased with the housing market crashing. I go against traffic so it is a non-issue with me. I fly up the 15 to Menifee in about 10 minutes. I lived in OC for most of my childhood and early adult life so compared to that, traffic is pretty easy. When people say traffic is bad I also wonder what they are comparing it to. Malcom, enjoy the Iowa winters.

I moved here from the South Bay (think 405 freeway) and it doesn't hold a candle to Temecula traffic. Temecula traffic on the 15 fwy exits are the worst I've ever seen. I've never seen any offramps on the 405 that take 30 minutes in a line to exit like the sorts of Winchester & 179 exits.

I live in Temecula and it has never taken me 30 minutes on an exit ramp.

It has taken me as long as 30 minutes to get from the Walmart in Murrieta to Alta Murrieta road. Normally, it only takes a couple minutes at most.

don't shop at walmart. or if you do, try asking all the employees you meet if they've ever thought about unionizing their store. then sit back and watch walmart freak out.

It's true, Walmart is not a union store. But neither is Target, or Best Buy or almost any other similar store in the area. Why single out Walmart?

I shop at Walmart because it's convenient. I don't drive and it's very difficult to get anywhere else. They're also open 24 hours a day (nobody else is).

because walmart is the only store where they will actually shut down a store that votes for a union and fire employees who try to unionize. it's how they can continue to pay their employees such a low wage that they actually help them apply for food stamps.
