We currently live in Takoma Park and want to move to a more rural area. We are looking at Olney but are worried about the commute. My wife and I both work down town. Please tell me that the commute will be less than an hour.

Yep it should be less than an hour where in dc? Nw,ne,se,sw? Downtown? Just take georgia av straight down, or you can go over by sandy spring and take new hampshire down your choice. Both should be about the same, bu georgia is probably easier since its a straight shot.

I don't think you'll make it in an hour.

Going via 108,--> Dr. Bird--> New Hampshire, I leave Olney just before 7:00 AM, and it takes about 30-35 min to hit the White Oak campus (Just outside the beltway).

Unless Georgia is much quicker, I'd say you're well over an hour, but I'm completely unfamiliar with traffic inside the beltway.

In summer, it's more like 20-25 without school but that's only a few months of the year.

We both work just off Penn. Ave. downtown and get to work pretty early (7). Is the commute back to Olney in the evening that much worse? Thanks.

Again, all I can tell you is that leaving around 7 AM, you'll probably be 30-35 min to the beltway. I'm kinda of assuming that by "Olney" you mean the intersection of Georgia and 108.

If you're getting to work at 7, then this means you're leaving at 6:00. If this is the case, you could make it in an hour, but I'm unfamiliar with driving inside the beltway.

In my opinion, the commute is the price you pay for living in Olney, which is suburban and quiet.
