Default How long is your commute?

Quite useful / interesting study of commuting times.

Which of New Zealand's major cities has the worst traffic congestion? | Stuff.co.nz

I do 99km's each way Bethlehem to Rukuhia and with the new Cambridge bypass it now takes 1hr 3 mins. The bypass saves me around 5 - 7 mins.
Normally do the trip 6 times (3 return journeys) in 8 days.

When in Beach Haven, it'd typically take me an hour on the bus to get into the CBD.

Not sure of the number of kms, but I do Rotorua to Tauranga.

Very little traffic - if any on a morning - 55-65 minutes.

Car-share with Paul Henry on a morning and Duncan Garner on an afternoon !!!

Job from home - 15 seconds lounge to office (maybe 20 if there's traffic in the form of a sleeping cat to navigate around in the doorway )

Other job in Christchurch - 20/25 minutes.

So over long commutes, love having the space to be able to work from home!

24.5 miles each way, about 30-32 minutes each. Not in New Zealand though.

Default Re: How long is your commute?

All depends on what time I leave.
If i leave anytime between 6am and 8am, it takes between 50 minutes to an hour to do 26km.
If after 8am then around 40 minutes.
But hey, I have the port hills to wet myself over in excitement. Who cares about dancing with death every morning when there's stunning views to admire.

Default Re: How long is your commute?

I leave the house at 7.10 and at my desk at 8.25

Drive to station - take train - walk for 7 mins

So about 1 hour 15 each way at the moment
