I’m looking at a job in Vacaville but I’d like to keep my commute as short as possible. Assuming I want to arrive in Vacaville by 6am-8am, about how long is the commute from either Carmichael-Sacramento or Concord? Is one direction going to have less traffic than the other?


Rent is the same in either city, I’m just looking at commute for now.

From Concord is the non-commute direction and is likely faster. The causeway traffic and through downtown/midtown Sac will be worse that what you experience heading to and from Concord. There is a $6 bridge toll that will eventually rise to $8 or $9 though.

I have a sort of dumb question... why not Vacaville? It's a solid town and I don't think it's any less exciting than Concord. That seems like an odd city to aim to live in for that commute.

But if you're forced to one, I would do Concord and not Sacramento. Rush hour is not kind in about 3 spots between there and Vacaville. Concord would be a reverse commute.

Martinez, Benicia, Fairfield, are better than Concord.

Benicia, yes. The rest? Eh, too hard to tell without knowing what you're comparing.

Fairfield definitely is not better or nicer than Concord. Benicia and Martinez are so much smaller, you an easily find an equivalent sized or larger area just as nice in Concord. Martinez has some grungy areas and the refineries too.

Agreed, OP didn't really give much details on whats most important. I was just going off things that I know many consider and the fact that all the towns I mentioned are closer to Vacaville than Concord. Concord has some great neighborhoods that I really liked when I was looking to buy, problem was the schools in most parts of town. The parts of town that had good schools were basically on the border of Clayton with a long drive on city streets to get to a freeway.

Yeah I didn't mention that they should look in vicinity of the refinery.
