We are relocating from Philadelphia and contemplating living in Pleasanton or Windmere. My work location is pretty distributed - San Jose, Redwood city, SFO. Would you recommend one location over the other from a convenience (to highways) standpoint? Except for the distance and prices, both seem to be in close comparison -nice homes, schools. Can someone living in this area tell me commute time between San Ramon/Windmere and San Jose? Additional advice greatly appreciated.

San Ramon-San Jose=1-1 1/2 hours during rush hour. Pretty much the same from Pleasanton also. I wouldn't recommend either of those places if your work is in Redwood City and SFO. That would mean going over bridges, and even getting on the 880 which is horrendous during rush hour.

Yeah, you might want to try the peninsula instead. San Mateo, Redwood City, etc. At least if you're closer to Redwood City, then going to San Francisco or San Jose wouldn't be too difficult. No bridges to cross, etc. On the Pleasanton/San Ramon side, going to Redwood City and San Francisco would require bridges and a whole lot of traffic. Going to San Jose from Pleasanton in the morning is a nightmare. I drive the opposite way and feel bad for the people stuck in the non-moving traffic on 680 going to San Jose.
