The beginning of February I will be relocating, everything is fine but now I will have a longer commute on the freeway. I work in Torrance and right now my commute is about 27 min with traffic coming from San Pedro. Now San Pedro is only two towns away from Torrance but it takes a little longer because there is so much school traffic in the morning and I am taking the streets. According to Google directions my commute to Torrance should only be about 17 min and it is 6 miles away. I take short cuts everyday to work and it is still about 27 or so minutes. The only time it is about 17 min is when there is holidays and school is out or people have the day off. Now I soon will be traveling to Torrance from downtown LA on the 110 S. According to Google it is 22.3 miles and it will be about 33 min. Now I know that really means about 45 min's with traffic. The 110 south is not as bad in the morning then the 110 north but still. It is going to be a real commute compared to what I do now. I have a buddy who works with me that lives in Highland Park who says he makes it to work in about 30 min. The sucky part will be going home at 5 p.m there is a lot of traffic still on the 110 north, not as bad in this case then the 110 south. I might have to just hang out in San Pedro until it gets later lol. I don't look forward to miles on my car but oh well lucky the gas is cheap for now. It really sucks that there are no trains that even go near Torrance in that case I would be able to at least park and ride. Now until I find a job in LA (won't happen anytime soon) I will have to travel. I really am going against traffic both ways but with the mass amount of cars nowadays that don't even matter sometimes.
So now I am curious since I will soon be driving 44 miles (round trip) and be on the road about 30 to 45 min(one way) , I was wondering what kind of commutes do you all have? How many miles do you travel to work? how long does it take? weather it's short or long let me know. I look forward to feedback =)
