Title: How far do you live from your office?
Post by: YTProphet on January 09, 2015, 02:07:51 PM
So I was fortunate to get a new job recently that reduced my commute from 30 miles and 45 minutes to 3 miles and 5-10 minutes. I'm over the moon about this (almost irrationally so according to friends and family). I'll be able to run or bike to work in the morning when things warm up (there's a gym with showers here, too), so I'm ecstatic.

How far do the rest of you Mustachians live from work? Do you drive or run/bike?

I live about 5 miles from work. I drive (10-15 minutes one way) due to the lack of shoulders/sidewalks/bike lanes on 40-50 mph roads.

I am 3.3 km from the office right now. I am house-sitting and take a 130 lbs Akita with me to the office so we walk there and back mostly through a nice lake trail, 50 mn if he doesn't stop at every other tree but most times it takes us about one hour which is quite long at -35. It is only 15 minutes by bike mostly via the same trail which is cleared in winter, but I stopped biking for now due to a few unexpected landings when the big dog decided to stop and sniff something without prior warning.

15km (maybe 6-7 miles? not sure). It's an hour by bus, assuming you don't have to wait too long for one, or 15-45 minutes by car, depending on when we leave home in the morning.

There's zero point in moving closer to either my work or DH's work. I think my record for different office locations around the city was 4 in 18 months. Moving house is expensive and painful, and not worth it for us.

17 miles one way, about a half hour drive on 2 lane state highways, speed limit 45-55 mph. 

I am very lucky to commute to school for free because my aunt works on campus and her commute brings her right past my house :)  On the days she can't drive for whatever reason (probably less than once a month), I drive a 2010 Ford Fusion @ 22-25 mpg and pay between $2 and $10 for parking (because I drive myself so infrequently, paying for a commuter lot pass doesn't make sense, but on the days I do drive I have to pay ridiculous amounts for garage parking). 

We bought the house a year ago in the exact middle of my husband's old work, my school, and my family.  20-30 minutes to each.  It occurred to me last night that we could sell and move to the town my school is in but preliminary napkin math is showing it as a wash financially.

About 8 miles and 20 minutes. I have to allow additional time for parking and actually getting to the building I work in. My work location moved a few years ago, my commute used to be shorter. However, for this geographic area my commute is likely well below average and I don't have to get on the horrendous highway system.

About 1 mile.  I walk or bike.  I have not purchased a parking decal for my workplace in 15 years.

Recently, when I broken leg meant that I could not walk or bike, I either got rides from colleagues or took a bus.

I love love love living so close to work--and I am also just blocks away from grocery stores, coffee shops, etc.  The library is 1.5 miles away.  Love living in town.

Construction electrician, one of the downsides of my work is commuting all over the city and surrounding suburbs. Anything beyond we get put up in paid accomodations but it's reasonably expected that you drive anywhere in a 1 hour radius of the city as a commute if you get put on a job there. Part of me wishes I had an office job where I could bike to work and save money that way. But it's not all bad, I'm using my time to continue learning the trade and may one day go out on my own. Gas and vehicle wear and any other contracting expenses will be added into my overhead and billed out anyways. I may get lucky in 1-2 more years and get a company van + gas card and be able to take the van home at nights.

My typical commute is 20 minutes in city driving and I've been lucky this past year most jobs have been in the city. Even the ones on the far outskirts I've only had to go to a few days out of the year. But trying to buy a house to position myself close to work is somewhat futile. Not everyone works in an office :)

Until all the "work from home" folks get to the thread, I'm going to claim shortest commute that's actually not working from home:

Less than one mile (.7) if I walk, a bit longer if it's -20 F and I drive (divided highway with stoplight for pedestrians but I have to go a couple blocks out of my way if I drive to get to a car stoplight).

 I'm ~8km from the office (5 miles).  Most days I take transit, but occasionally drive when I need the vehicle (2001 Toyota Rav4) to go to a different site for work during the day.  I could move closer, but i love the little community I'm in now. Almost everything is within walking distance from my place and I'm on some great bike paths.

Whaddya mean "when it warms up"?  A few days ago I walked the ~1 mile to my office when it was -3 F with a -20 F wind chill.  I was a awake by the time I got there.

10-12 minutes max but I couldn't bike it because it would take me at least an hour plus and my time is worth more than that to me. I workout before or right when i get home in the basement.  Its straight freeway and there really isn't a frontage road. Plus recently days below zero and icy snowy roads i will keep driving.

I live 0.4 miles. It is a 10-12 minute stroll to my office. It would take longer to drive it and an absurd $80/ month to park a 5 minute walk from there.

Forgot to mention "$80/month parking is such a sweet deal" according to my coworkers. $150-$200/month is the going rate around the office but a coworker buddies up to a garage to get us a "steal".

10 miles by car or bus.  Bus ride is about 35-45 minutes depending on traffic.    13 miles by bike because the direct route is a busy road and by going a bit extra distance on side streets and paths it's a much more pleasant ride.   It takes about an hour by bike depending on how long I have to sit at traffic lights.

30 minutes...  Depending on the route I take, it is somewhere between 16-20 miles.  The longer route has less traffic and more highway speed/less traffic lights.  Both routes take about the same amount of time, but one is more convenient headed east and the other more convenient headed west due to traffic and left turn avoidance and such.

About 13 miles, and I drive. Takes about 25-30 minutes.  I'd ride my bike, but I have a compressed work schedule, and adding an extra 1-1.5hrs to my commute each day by choosing to bike just isn't worth it at this juncture. 

I'd kill a man to be a couple miles away.

Post by: lhamo on January 10, 2015, 03:27:45 PM
Since we relocated our office, my commute is now 6km each way (about 3.7 miles).

When the weather is decent and I don't have to dress up for work, I try to bike it -- takes 30-40 minutes door to door, depending on how I hit the lights.  Now that I have paid for my bike/lock, cost is free, assuming my bike doesn't get stolen again.  Less chance of that now that I don't park at the subway station.

If I take the bus, it takes 40-50 minutes depending on traffic.  15 minutes to walk to the bus stop, 15-20 minutes on the bus, depending on when it arrives and traffic on the way, and 10 minutes to walk to the office on the other end.  Costs about $.07/trip.

They just opened a new subway line near our house, but haven't had a chance to try it yet (just got back last night).  I estimate it will take me about 15 minutes to walk to the subway, 10-15 minutes on the subway ( only 3-4 stops, but I have to change lines once, which adds to the time), and 5 minutes to walk to the office from the subway stop.  So roughly the same amount of time as biking.  It will cost about $.50/trip.

Other option, which I do sometimes when weather is bad or I have to get there early for a meeting is to take a taxi.  That takes between 15-30 minutes, depending on traffic and costs between $3.50 and $6.50.  Will likely use that option only rarely now that I have the subway alternative.

This commute is MASSIVELY better than my old one, which was cross-town 18km in horrible traffic.

Currently 6 miles from work. We bought this house because it was about a mile from my office and I could walk or bike to work, but then they moved me to another location that is 6 miles away and those six miles are over dangerous streets or the highway. So no more biking. I got a substantial raise, which about paid for the car I had to buy. :(

About 7-8km. Usually I'll take the tram, which is about 40-45min including walking to/from the stop.

I've ridden the bike in a couple of times. I'd ride more often if I could do it without needing a shower, the ride is about 35 min.

30.5 miles each way, 35 minutes most days, less than a gallon of gas a day in my prius.  I wouldn't trade where I live for a spot closer to town-- the hills around my home are beautiful and the only traffic jams I regularly hit are the ones caused by the elk herd crossing the road.

4222 total (mostly air) miles 1 way..  Commute 1 way every 3 weeks (3 week on/ 3 week off rotation).

That averages 402 commuting miles per day for the 21 days at work in any given 6 week time period of the year- have to factor the round trip and that I get 3 weeks off after 3 weeks of work.

I'm definitely leveraging this opportunity to set myself up financially to exit the RAT race.

with the walking, waiting and occasional delays it is probably about 45 minutes from my door to cube

10 miles.   We work a block from each other, but drive separately.  Matrix and Civic.

We used to bike a couple of times a week (I bike to work, husband drives with bike on back, I drive home, he bikes home.)

But then we had a second kid.

So I'd love to carpool, but we offset our schedules for school/ child care dropoff and pick up.

So he works 8:45 to 5:45
I work 7:30 to 4:30

Our daycare is 5 miles in the wrong direction.  So he drops off big kid at school and little kid at daycare and goes to work.
In the afternoon, I do the reverse (little kid, big kid, home).

I've been thinking of trying to get back on the biking wagon, maybe once a week.  It's 45 minutes for him, an hour for me (I guess I'm just slower).

In about 1.5 years, second kid will go to preschool, hopefully close to work, so less commuting.  Sadly, our kids are 6 years apart, so they will only be in the same school for one year.

0 miles, WFH

But spend an hour in the basement on the bike most days... so I guess I live 13 miles from work with an indoor commute, or something?

~28 miles.  I commute in Chicago via train and then a work shuttle, which results in a 3 hour daily commute.

starting tomorrow .3 miles. So gosh darn excited. Previously it was 2.2 miles. Because I start work early and the office was in a not so great neighborhood I took the bus with was 45 minutes to a half hour each way (depending on timing) now it will be a 10 minute walk :) (Which means I get to drop my bus pass.)

20 years ago: 35 miles to Cupertino, drove. Every day. 45 minutes if all went well. That was before silicon valley companies were competing with luxury busses. :(

14 years ago: 2 miles, scored job with great bike commute to downtown Santa Cruz

7 years ago: Office closing, was ready to quit... except they moved closer to my house, 0.5 miles.

4 years ago: Did a deal with the Devil, 45 miles to Palo Alto. Sometimes drove (1-2 hours), sometimes bicycle + bus + train (2-3 hours), sometimes work from home.

2015: Voluntarily unemployed! (Maybe FIRE'd. Maybe not. But either way, yay!)

850 miles. But I telecommute mostly.

Corporate office is 838 miles.  My office is just downstairs.  Husband has to drive when he is out in his territory, but his office is upstairs.  I always find myself elbowing him for space on the kitchen island.

6 miles.
I drive.   If it was flatter, I'd bike, but there are a lot of little hills and two large ones that would mean I would never make it to work in a reasonable amount of time.  I don't want to leave my house at 5:30 a.m. for a 7:00 shift.

Once it gets warmer I'm going to start trying to do the bike ride on weekends and see if I can get it down to 45 minutes, then I might consider biking on nice days.

Sounds kind of complainy-pants to me. You will get used to hills. Hills are awesome at making you use more muscles. In good bike shape, you can do 6 mile of hills in 20-25 minutes.

25 km (15 miles).

In the morning, I carpool with my husband in a 2005 Matrix.

In the evenings, I take the bus to the end of the line, and then I either walk home (in the summer - 2.5 km) or husband picks me up.  I actually enjoy the walk, but it is a dark country road with no shoulder and no lights, so in the winter, I'm not comfortable with the risk of slipping and falling in front of an oncoming car.  Husband leaves work earlier to pick kids up before daycares close.

I'm not complaining about anything, because I'm not trying to reduce my spending or my car reliance. I'm perfectly happy with my commute, which is greatly improved from the job I had last year (which was about a 15 minute drive + 30 minute walk).

Not everyone is in good bike shape, so your estimate doesn't really apply to me. My husband (who does bike to work in the summer) could easily do that in that time, me, not so much.  And going down hills is terrifying to me, so it is something I'm going to have to work up to, to even consider going that route.  It took me about an hour the last time I went, and that was working hard.  If I was biking to work, I'd have to take a relaxed approach so I don't arrive a sweaty mess, so it would take even longer.  Besides which, I don't like biking more than 13 mph in any condition, I feel too out of control on the bike.  I have a pretty extensive injury history which fuels fear for me.   

Maybe someday I'll bike, but I have no problem with the 10 minutes of driving (15 in traffic, which I avoid by going in the early morning).

So that is all the MORE reason to do it. You SHOULD be in good bike shape. What is the point of retiring at 35 if you are overweight and have to go on 24 medicines to stay alive?

You will get used to going faster then 13mph. You may need a real road bike and not a granny style hybrid, but that is easy to accomplish. My casual pedaling easy pace is 18mph, and my race pace (on flats) is closer to 21-23mph...

Sure biking is a CHANCE to be injured. But not exercising is a guaranteed slow and painful death. Our brains teach us to avoid the chance of something bad, while accepting the certainty of something bad 5-10 years down the road. Fight your brain and come alive!

I'm not overweight, and I don't take any meds. I do exercise regularly when I can, which depends on how injuries are doing in a particular time varies. I spent most of last year incapable of exercise due to the effects of a broken neck (not the same injury I posted about in a different thread), so right now I'm not in great shape. But even when I am, biking is just not something I enjoy.

I have no interest in going over 13 mph. I had a nice road bike (purchased by my husband who enjoys biking and bike racing) and sold it FOR a hybrid because it is useless for someone who isn't racing and I wanted something more comfortable.

Just because YOU think 18 mph is a reasonable comfortable pace, doesn't mean I do.  It is much too fast for me to feel comfortable.  I have no problem biking to a restaurant or a grocery store, but right now, work isn't  going to happen. Like I said- I plan to work on it, but it isn't something I value highly.  I changed jobs to get to under 45 minutes in total travel time (that was driving + walking) to and from work; I'm not sure I really want to go back to that- even if I biked quickly, I'd still be getting close to it.

What the hell does any of this have to do with the length of a commute?   As I said in the original post before people decided to critique me, mine's 6 miles, I don't bike, but think I might like to on nice days, however, that mode of transportation is currently out of reach for me.

I don't think I'm going to die 20 years early just because I don't bike to work.  Heck, since MOST americans don't bike to work, the average age probably takes that into account anyway.  So, are you saying I should expect to live to 98 if I bike? I think the average age of 78 is just fine. Due to my neck issues, I'm guessing my quality of life isn't going to be great at that point anyway, and there is nothing biking can do about that. Heck, every year I lived past 17 was a bonus, since easily could have died then.

Not biking to work isn't going to guarantee I need some sort of chronic meds. This is just a ridiculous argument.

I can (and do when possible) use the time saved by not biking to work out in a form I enjoy. Why waste time biking if I don't enjoy it at all? If my commute is shorter, I can then go to the pool after work to swim, lift weights, row (in the summer), cross country ski (in the winter), or do a cardio workout tape that is fun.

I'm HAPPY I recovered an hour a day by shortening my commute from my previous job.  Most of the time I use that time to workout, sometimes I use it for other things, but now I get to use it as I see fit, rather than have to use it getting to and from work.

Maybe on nice days I'd enjoy biking to work, but it isn't a priority to me.   That it is out of reach right now doesn't mean I complained about anything.  Did you not see the part that said when the weather gets nicer I was thinking about practicing the route on weekends? How is that complainy/defeatist? I'm opening an avenue where maybe I could bike, on days I feel like it adds value to my day.  My car commute is 10 minutes. That is nothing that needs to be "fixed".

9 miles from my office, but I have not been to the office in over 6 months.  As a consultant I am typically working at the client-site, meaning my commute varies considerably during the year.  Everything else we do is within 1-2 miles of our house.

Forty-fricking-four miles each way - Four LA freeways, but mostly 'against' the commute.  I have less than 6 months until I vest in the retirement system, so need to hang on awhile.

Drive a VW TDI, which gets 40-45 mpg, but I feel like a complete clown.

I'm 5.8 miles with great bike paths all the way there. Just about a mile or so on side streets getting to and from the paths. It's great! In the 4+ months I've been at this job, I've ridden the bus <5 times and gotten a ride maybe 10-15 times due to sub-zero temps.

Sounds kind of complainy-pants to me. You will get used to hills. Hills are awesome at making you use more muscles. In good bike shape, you can do 6 mile of hills in 20-25 minutes.

Give me a break. I'm in great biking shape (biked well over 2,000 miles last year), and my 5.8 miles with one minor hill takes maybe as little as 25 minutes on a clear day with the wind at my back. Nobody wants to be hauling ass for 6 miles up hill to show up to work completely drenched in sweat. MMM himself advocates for a reasonable biking pace. My fastest bike is an 80s steel road bike, but it's not all that Mustachian to buy a fancy new bike just so you can go a little faster and work a little less, right?

I get unlimited free public transport use, so i catch the train in each day.

I love it, i use the time to either read a book (currently trying to complete the 100 greatest novels of all time) or catch up on some TV shows.

Until all the "work from home" folks get to the thread, I'm going to claim shortest commute that's actually not working from home:

Less than one mile (.7) if I walk, a bit longer if it's -20 F and I drive (divided highway with stoplight for pedestrians but I have to go a couple blocks out of my way if I drive to get to a car stoplight).

Sorry, we're tied! :-) I live .7 miles from work, and I don't own a car. Walk all day every day, even in the cold and snowy winter. I'll be leaving for work shortly, and it's 11 degrees F outside. Coworkers think I'm crazy, but it's wonderful.

25 miles, which is done via train. The train station being 3.5 miles from home. When I got this job it was 50 miles and across state lines. I'll be moving in the spring, reducing it to 17.5 miles and the train stations are 1 and 2 miles away so easier to manually go to them.

Unfortunately farther then I would like. :(
But a little better after the company HQ moved about 3 years ago.

My drive is apparently 5.1 miles.
Then I bus another 10.9 miles.
So the commute is 16 miles, direct it would be 15.3 miles.

Wife is 13.3 miles, all car, in essentially the opposite direction.

We are looking to remedy this a little bit on both sides by moving in the area so that we are in a different school district for the kids upcoming education, but really the only way to fully correct this is for one or both of us to get new jobs.  I am 11yrs and a manager at my company, so its hard to want to leave... and she is an 8th grade teacher, 16+yrs in, so finding the right fit in a new district isn't an easy task either.

18 km by car, time not applicable, don't drive to work - it would sometimes be faster but always more expensive

About the same for my husband. Vancouver's just bad that way. Good jobs tend to be clustered in the tiny little downtown isthmus that is in no way central.

I think it's more your life situation - do you want to live in a spend-y city? The closer to downtown you live, the more it'll cost, the more it'll cost the further you might live. Unless you and your wife are fortunate to have the kind of jobs that are not downtown or have flexible selection criteria for your home base (we wanted a city of 2M people, but that's just us), you might get stuck a little further out.

Yes, I'm single, but numerous frugal couples live in my apartment complex. I'm planning to start sharing a similar-size studio with my brother around mid of this year.

How much "space" you need is all in your mind - check out the tiny houses thread. It also helps that I'm "anti-claustrophobic" - I like small spaces. Much of the world lives in this size of a space - so it's definitely doable. Also lets you appreciate what you truly value in life.

Or you can suck it up and live in a smaller place, recognizing that the QOL of living close to work more than makes up for a smaller living space (and actually living small isn't that bad). I live in 250 square feet ($1K/month) 2 miles from work and I love it. No way am I paying $2K/month for a 500-square foot apartment.

Are you single?  I could live in 200 sq ft by myself, but not with my husband!  And certainly not with our dogs...

Yes, I'm single, but numerous frugal couples live in my apartment complex. I'm planning to start sharing a similar-size studio with my brother around mid of this year.

How much "space" you need is all in your mind - check out the tiny houses thread. It also helps that I'm "anti-claustrophobic" - I like small spaces. Much of the world lives in this size of a space - so it's definitely doable. Also lets you appreciate what you truly value in life.

To each their own -- I love tiny houses and I posted the exact same thing in that thread.  Two of my dogs' crates are 54" long and the third is 48"; we have Great Danes.  They're one of the things I truly value in life and they have a need for actual physical space, not space in my mind :P 

Pre-marriage and pre-dogs, I shared small dorm rooms (125 sq ft?) with other girls and did fine.

17 miles, ~25 min drive, but at least it's a reverse commute. Will hopefully be moving closer in May.

0.8 miles. It's about a 15 minute walk, depending on the weather.

16 miles and 22 minutes. I work at my sons' school so we are at least all headed to the same place. I don't want to move closer because suburbia surrounds the area and where I live is urban and easy biking distance to the foothills, the river, and all my favorite bookstores and pubs.

just got a new job, and now my longest commute yet :/ (but doubled my income, so worth it). Approximately 13 miles by car via interstate (20 min drive) or 15-16 miles by bike via greenway (about an 60-70 minutes). It will definitely be a long bike commute, but I'm a competitive cyclist, so will be getting my training/workouts in just by commuting 2-2.5 hrs a day! Sweet!

20.5 miles each way (1/3 surface, 2/3 highway); 28 minutes.  cheap compact car @ 42mpg (could shave couple minutes off commute for more gas consumed...)

30.5 miles each way, 35 minutes most days, less than a gallon of gas a day in my prius.  I wouldn't trade where I live for a spot closer to town-- the hills around my home are beautiful and the only traffic jams I regularly hit are the ones caused by the elk herd crossing the road.

This +1.  We have good amount of acreage in the middle of a rapidly developing suburb; herds of deer, resident raptors, noisy coyotes at night, & awoke this morning to the sound of ten preening Tom Turkeys under our bedroom window trying to show that the other nine weren't up to snuff.  A small place in the heart of the city has its attractions and will come in due course, but for now . . .   (And, we are much closer to DW's office)

677 miles. About a 10 mile drive to the airport, then a plane ride to where I'm based. Usually do the commute four times a month.

When we relocated back from Los Angeles distance from work was important.

Me: 10 miles and 20 minutes drive
Husband: 5 miles and 10 minutes drive

Great thing is we both now can work from home up to 3 days a week so I work from home Monday and Wednesday. He works from home Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday so that we don't interfere with each other at work.

Under a mile, or about 20 minutes walking. It's awesome, =).

I work out of several work locations at a larger facility. The center of that facility is almost exactly a mile away from me as the crow flies.
