East Bay is nothing but navigating around the maze,.. by a car or the Bart. North SF is very nice but also rough on a commuter.

Any city south of San Francisco is best,... Daly City, Burlingame, San Mateo, Foster City, San Carlos, Redwood City are all within 40 minutes to SF.

Good luck getting your commute under 40 minutes outside of SF. Only a couple of real options: Daly City or Oakland. Ditch the car because there is too much traffic. There are parts of North Oakland that are very good but you would have to go the private route for schooling. In SF, I would look at Glen Park and Noe Valley.

There's actually BART stations in Orinda, Lafayette and Walnut Creek. All would be great options- so there's really no navigating at all. The BART takes +- 25 minutes. The public schools are some of the best in the state and you'd be able to rent a very nice house for this budget. I'm a little confused by all the misinformation and scaremongering over "ditching the car" (impossible when you have children) or having to send the kids to some pricey private school.
