Can anyone please help give me an idea of the average commute time from San Ramon or Pleasanton to Fremont around the hours of 7 am and 5 pm?

How much time does having an electric car and using the express lane save?

General guidelines.

Commute time from Pleasanton to Fremont is 20 minutes with no traffic. Driving in heavy traffic will easily double that time and may be even greater. The traffic commute pattern is in the direction of Pleasanton to Fremont in the morning and Fremont to Pleasanton in the afternoon/evening hours. Your actual times will vary based on traffic volumes, conditions and presence of accidents.

I use to commute from Pleasanton to North San Jose (further south than Fremont) and my commute was between 45 to 90 minutes, average 60 minutes one way.

Thank you for replying. How much time do you think the expresslanes save?

Do the Expresslanes go from Fremont all the way up to San Ramon?

The express lanes would save 15-25 minutes, or so. The southbound express lanes go from Sunol (south of Pleasanton) to Milpitas, which is the most congested portion of the commute (over the Sunol grade).

The northbound lanes are currently under construction and are badly needed. This is a notoriously congested commute, with northbound afternoon traffic backing up on I-680 starting from Milpitas near Jacklin Road or Scott Creek Road in Fremont, over the Sunol grade starting around 2:30 PM until as late as 8:00 PM some nights.

An alternative would be to take streets.
