The IE is like the outskirts of any big city in the US. People tend to live as far out as they can afford a home. I live in the western part of the IE and most of my neighbors work in LA County. Most people that work in the western areas of the IE tend to live further east as the jobs pay less.

A commute from the I.E. to one of the 88 cities in Los Angeles County is entirely different than commuting from the I.E. to downtown Los Angeles.

No offense, but if you're thinking of making the move, perhaps the first (and most important) lesson you have to learn is that in the LA area, distances on a map often bear almost no relationship to drive times by the standards to which you are accustomed. In my experience, you don't really get a true sense of it until you spend a week or two just driving around. I know traffic is bad in Atlanta too, but man... LA is a whole different level of horrendous.

As stated before if you take the train not a bad commute but driving to downtown LA is crazy. Luckily the train service to downtown LA is great from many areas of the IE. It’s also an easy commute to other areas along the Metro like Wilshire and Hollywood.

For example, costs of living between Atlanta and San Bernardino are not that far off according to this study.

If you plan to only spend 1000 dollars per month on rent in San Bernardino, I wish you luck in regards to your safety and well being.

I don't see rents under 1K in the IE in any area worth bothering with. I'd look to Redlands, West Highland or Yucaipa, and if you find something for (under) 1K, consider yourself got lucky. But chances are the unit won't get the repaint treatment and it will feel oldish.

That's good to know. I always wondered how worse LA traffic was than Atlanta's. You're correct you don't really know until you live there and have to commute.

Thanks. I may be better off renting a room or looking at a safer area.
