    Your commute?

    Just moved to Ames from Johnston and made my commute to work about twenty minutes longer. On a good day with free flowing traffic I drive about 34 min. I really don't find it all that bad but people tell me they would go crazy driving that far each day...

    Just got me thinking, how far/long do you drive to work?

    My commute is right at 10 miles from Urbandale out to WDM. I leave at 7:35am and I'm parked in the lot by 7:50am after taking I-35 southbound from Douglas to Mills Civic. A nice, easy commute.

    Re: Your commute?

    10-15 minutes to the light rail station
    1-5 minute wait for the train
    25 min train ride to downtown
    5 min walk to my office

    generally, about a 50-55 min daily commute each way..

    Re: Your commute?

    Beaverdale to South of Grand. 3-4 miles and usually about 10-15 minutes. Very easy on the gas tank.

    Re: Your commute?

    My commute is fairly short, 15 minute train ride. Due to construction in Chicago, it takes my wife 1.5 hours each way to drive about 25 miles now. Horrid commute.

    Re: Your commute?

    30-40 minutes on the bus. In winter it has taken up to 1.5 hours depending on the weather.

    Re: Your commute?

    10 minutes if I dont get behind any of these:





    Otherwise tack on another 10 minutes. Plymouth County sends alot of slowpokes as well. All of the above love driving 25 in a 45. I cant win.
