Hi everyone,
I will be starting a new job in TO and want to live in SM
i drove from my hotel in SM to the job in TO over the weekend and was not bad
One time, there was some traffic abt half the way, and took me 1 hr and 5 min
the second time, there was no traffic and took me 40 min going avg 65 m/hr

Is this a doable commute everyday?
I think i am expected at work around 8.30 and can leave around 4.30
so rush hours for sure

any idea would be welcome
I tried the "tepanga canyon" as well but it was too much for me for every day...

That depends on your definition of "doable", the commute during the weekday is going to be a lot longer than the commute during the weekend.

Not sure why you want to live in Santa Monica, but if you're looking for something more city-like than I'd suggest looking at the Studio City/Burbank area instead. You'll still have a decent commute, but it won't be as bad.

I used to work with a guy who did SM to Westlake and then Camarillo later on. He hated it.

I am used to driving 1 hr to 1 hr and half each way to work...so anything in that range is ok but if it more than that, it would be too much...any idea of the avg time each way?

Im guessing you are taking the coast, since you are already in santa monica. The quikest way to get into TO from SM is to jump down to PCH and take PCH either to Lindero Canyon (Where Pepperdine is) or further down by Zuma and take Kanan. Kanan would be your best bet, beacuse no matter what time of the day it is, it will spit you out right Agoura/Village on the 101. You will bypass all the traffic on the 405/101 interchange and the valley traffic on the 101. Not to mention, the coastal drive is a lot more relaxing than the 405/101 in my opinion. I have gotten from 3rd st in santa monica to my house in TO in a little under an hour.

Good luck on your commute, whichever way you decide to take.

Lindero doesn't go to PCH, you are probably thinking of Las Virgene.

Yes, Las Virgenes. You would think that being in TO for 24 years I would remember, but I guess being out of the state for a year for school will do that to you, haha.

Why wouldn't you want to live in Thousand Oaks? Imo it's the ideal place to live in the whole country.

Your ideal and their ideal are likely 2 different ideals.

If you're a young, single professional, then I would say SM is the way to go.

You point out that people have different ideals, yet imply that "young single professionals" have the same ideals.

I'd much rather live in Thousand Oaks than Santa Monica.
