>walk 10 minutes to train
>ride train 1 stop under the East River (3 minutes)
>get out at Grand Central
>walk another 10 minutes from train, through Grand Central into my building

I can do the whole thing door to desk in under 30 minutes.
>>
Depends on my mood

I can walk 5 minutes to the train, ride 20 minutes, get out and walk 4 minutes

Or I can ride my bike about 25 minutes

Or I can just work from home, so I usually just do that since I'm usually in the mood to not be around too many people
>>
When I moved about a year ago I deliberately located myself near my workplace:
>wheel bike out of garage, close door
>5 minute bike ride through suburban streets and a park
>swipe keyfob to open outside door at work
>ride bike from door to desk, park bike in cubicle behind where I sit
It's a nice commute - not as quick and convenient as working from home (which has other downsides), and not as exciting/refreshing as when I used to live in a place where an MTB trail was the most direct route between work and home, but it's one I'm very happy with.
>>
>leave
>drive for anywhere between 20-30 minutes depending on traffic
>way back usually 10 minutes longer
only alternative is a 55 minute (minimum bus), i'm getting a high speed electric scooter that I can take bike paths and it only is gonna take like 30 minutes at the max
>>
>>1793300
>walk 4 minutes
>>
Either
Walk 10min to bus stop, wait another 10min because usually late, 50min bus or so, 5min walk
On the way back there's even more waiting because I finish work like 40min before the next bus


Taking my bike feels a lot better but its roughly an hour there up a fuck load of hills, nice coming down them on the way back though, get home much earlier than public transport

I work from home and I have never met any of my coworkers because they're all super scared of the flu. It is extremely comfy and I will quit on the spot if they tell me I have to go back to the office, fuck that. Also working from home means I can drink all day without worrying someone can smell it on my breath

THAT WAS IT! The idiot then has the gall to delete the post and issue a warning to post "automobiles on the /o/ board."

Half of the morons should be banned on here if that's the threshold for off topic posting. Every communist fantasy thread about "urban development" or crying about public funding for highways should be banned.

If your work can be done in a high-rise it can be done from home.
>>
- walk 4min to station, ride tram 30min, walk from station to office 4min
or
- ride bicycle 20min through park (alternative way 30min)
or
- walk 45min through park, thats my favourite
or
- work from home

>10 minute ride down cobbled alleyways
>5 minutes ride across parkland
>3 minute rapid descent down to the bridge
>2 minutes across bridge
>6 minute ride along riverside path
>7 minute ride over loose small stone gravel track to the back of the industrial park
>30 second ride to the warehouse

I love it, there is a variety too, I can cross the river later and take a meander around some fields, I can skip the alleyways and keep to the roads, there are 3 ways I can approach the industrial park, each with a different type of surface, come rain or shine I love my commute, the ride to work refreshes and invigorates me ensuring I arrive wide awake and raring to go (yes, I enjoy my work), the ride home allows me to de stress and tires me out nicely for a relaxing evening, in the winter that means I come home to a nice hot drink and a hearty meal, in the summer a cold beer and a sandwich in the garden, the highlight of my working day.

Walk 2 minute to the metro then 30 minutes into town

Or, cycle 25 minutes into town

Also got good bus and train options, but the bus is slow and smelly and the train is expensive and less frequent so I don't use them for commuting but I like knowing they are there if I need them
>>
>>1794083
why would you opt for the bus instead of metro? I'm guessing the train is faster then the metro, while being less frequent?
>>
Cycle 15 minutes along river path and local main roads

I'll soon change from a 50-60 minutes commute to walking about 5 minutes and I feel like I'll have to be really careful to get there on time. Open shoelaces alone could ruin my shedule.
>>
>>1794257
The bus is a lot cheaper and has different routes, its more extensive than the metro so it goes to more places.

Yeah the train is about 10 minutes into town. But the infrequency and delays makes it annoying. If I knew with a high degree certainty it would show up on time I would use it over the metro but the commuter trains get delayed by intercity trains. Its a mess.
>>
10 minute bike ride. can evade all traffic ;)
>>
>>1794796
Having such a short and predictable commute definitely entices you to drag out your morning schedule until the last minute. Half the days I go "shit I really gotta leave now and still don't have my shirt buttoned up".
>>
1. Go to bus stop in 3 minutes
2. 35 minutes in bus
4. 5 minutes to destination.

I was really mad when the Candiac line extension to Saint-Jean was cancelled, they looked into it and claimed it wasn't viable due to how long the trips where. My ass, I'd take it and so would anyone going downtown by bus. Pic related, red is line blue was possible extension that was cancelled.

3 days of the week I don't have a commute because lol WFH. The other 2 days:
>suburban rail station is almost directly opposite my house
>15 minute train ride
>7 minute walk to the office

Several jobs ago I had a commute that was a 45 to 50 minute drive in bumper to bumper traffic. I own a manual. It was hell.
>>
>>1793300

it was like:
- 8am wake up, eat something
- 8:20 walk 3 minutes to the nearby station
- 8:25 ride train 4 stops
- 8:40 walk 1 minute to the nearby bus station
~8:45-8:50 ride bus 3 stops
~8:52-8:59 walk 1 minute to the office
- have "elastic worktime start", could enter up to 9:30am without being scolded as late.
- most people still not present at 9:25, so I could take a comfy shit on company time

one hour from sleep to desk. it was so comfy.
3 years later, got laid off.

next job has been so far:
- 7am wake up, eat something
- 7:20 walk 6 minutes to the tram stop
~7:30, ride tram for 11 stops
~8:00, ride metro train for 9 stops
~8:30, ride bus for 17 stops
~9:15, walk 6 minutes to the desk
by 9:30 I'm usually at the desk.

It takes the same amount of time (bus uses bus lanes here and there), and I can watch videos and play online chess and it is cheaper (even if you factor in the car's insurance).
If there was a bus from my town to the central station that arrives 5 minutes before the inter-city bus, I would immediately sell my car.
It is the price of living in a rural area. At least I don't pay rent or mortgage.
