    I drive 35 miles to the train station, which takes me 45 minutes, then take the train to my office, which takes another 30-40 minutes. I am contemplating transfer to another office, which is 80 miles from me, but the up side is that there is less traffic, and a shorter commute. =)

    Hi....I travel 30 miles to work each way, and about 29 miles of it are highway miles. It's really not too bad, I drive pretty fast, and make it in about 25 minutes. Also, I only work 3 days a week thanks to my 12 hour shifts, and I'm also driving against Boston traffic since I work in NH, so I've got it pretty easy! I've had to drive in the snow, that's the only really nerve-racking part.....just have to go really slow. Once I even brought some clothes to work because I knew it would snow pretty hard and just spent the night at work. Good luck if you take the new job!!

    My full time job is about 8 miles or 15 minutes from home to work. When I go to the other prison and work it is 25 miles and about 35 minutes to get there. I do hate working night shifts over there though......I have missed hitting the back of semi-trucks many times when I use to work nights all the time...not even singing in my car would stop me from falling asleep...

    I drive about 8 Kilometers to work one way. Last job was at a nursing outpost so I had a 30 second walk to work.

    I travel 84 miles one way. Just started this new job 4 weeks ago. The last job that I had for the past 15 years was only 5.8 miles away. That's why I endured it for so long. Decided after the first week on the new job that I could not drive back and forth daily after my 12 hour midnoc shift so am staying in a motel for two days then coming home after the third shift. I think that will work out better for me.
