Hi!

We are considering a move to Rancho Cucamonga. I have some flexibility in my work schedule. I'm planning on leaving my house around 6 am to make it to downtown LA by 7. I"m also planning on returning back to Rancho no later than 2:30/3:00.

My husband works on the border of Temple City/El Monte. He will be responsible for dropping the kids off at school and then heading in to work. I'm wondering what time traffic would be gnarly for him. Should he leave Rancho by 7? 7:30? Ideally, he'd like to be at work no later than 8:30. Thanks!

Assuming you will be using the 210, 605, 10 route...

Your morning drive is going to be congested on most days... one hour is a bit optimistic--maybe a hour and 20 minutes. Your afternoon drive back will be easy, though.

It might take your husband a hour to get to Temple City because of the local/surface streets involved, since Temple City is really not that close to the 210, the 10, and the 605.

Thanks...
Right now he's coming from Burbank and takes the 5 to the 134 to the 210 and gets off at Miccihilinda.

He would probably take the 210 E (From Rancho) and get off at the same exit and take surface streets in. . .

As for me, yeah, 210 to 605 to 10 probably...flirting with the idea of 210 to 134 to 110...

still an hour and twenty minutes for me? leaving at 6 am?
an hour for him? leaving at 7, 7:30 am?

You'd want to be at the 210/605 Interchange by 6:10 a.m. at the latest....any time after that, it's pretty much bumper to bumper on the 210 going west.

With 210 to 110, you have to exit California Blvd in Pasadena and drive the surface streets for about 10 minutes to reach the 110.

The 110 is not that congested from Pasadena to Chinatown--once you pass the LA River, then it's usually packed going into Downtown. At that point, you will either have to exit Chinatown to get inside Downtown or tough it out on the 110.

You'll hit a lot of traffic on the 10 or the 210 at that hour.

Have you considered taking the Metrolink? A lot of employers will reimburse some of your transportation, and if you are going to downtown, it's very easy and 95% reliable (we were delayed for an hour yesterday due to mechanical issues, but that's rare). There is a Rancho stop and the trains run every hour or so until rush hour.
