I recently finished school and moved to the bay area for a job. My position is in Petaluma, in southern Sonoma County. I have also been living in Petaluma, in order to adjust to my new job without dealing with a commute. However, I am a 25 year old, and while Petaluma seems like a great place for families, there isn't much going on for someone in my age group. I absolutely love San Francisco, however, and have been spending a lot of free time there. I am considering finding an apartment in San Francisco once my lease in Petaluma is up, and I am curious on what locals think of the SF to Petaluma commute. Doable? I have done it during rush hour many times, and it doesn't seem too bad, since it is a reverse commute. It is certainly expensive, though. I would also want to find an apartment in SF that is close to the Golden Gate bridge. I have also considered living somewhere in Marin, but I don't think it's exactly what I'm looking for.

Thanks for any comments or suggestions!

I drove it for a month, it's not that bad because you are going the other way from the rush. It's still long though

If it was the other way around, Golden Gate transit would be easy. But I guess, since you work in Petaluma-well you could still look up the Golden Gate transit and see if there is a connector to your work place. It is not that bad and neither is the drive. When I worked there, one of my colleagues commuted from Santa Rosa 3 days a week and worked from home 2 days. I think late night buses might be a problem or even non existant. But otherwise should be fine.
