    Used to be under 10 minutes anywhere I was stationed at in the Military, I took that for granted. I now live 10 miles away which takes me 30 minutes and I hate it so much. So much time wasted in the commute. I listen to audio books, but still.....

    My longest commute was my previous position. I used to travel via public transport 2 hours to get there and then 2 hours back home.


    Now it only takes me 15 minutes to walk each way for my new job.

    Just took a brand new role. I was specifically looking for something close by, and it's 30 minutes door to door include about 20 minutes cycling. So far, that's working really well for me. I need the exercise.

    On the other hand, I know someone who is about 5 minutes walk to their workplace, and they think it's too close. They are concerned about running into colleagues/clients, and 5 minutes means they aren't getting the same incidental exercise they were.

    Previously, I had a job that had about 30 minutes on a train which I found to be really good for reading/studying. You can easily get a few hours of reading a week that way.

    One thing I hope never to go back to is driving regularly in city peak traffic. 40 minutes of stop/start driving in packed traffic is not the same as 40 minutes of driving on open freeway.

    Yeah, there's a thing about "the third space" where you can depressurise from work before coming home. Personally, I found that driving for 40mins-1.5hr in city traffic really didn't help destress much, but 30 mins on a train really did. I think you are completely correct when you say you need that even when you are working from home.

    I would agree with that. There are many times where I come up from my office and my wife is busy doing whatever and asks for my help. Usually I just do it then relax but there are times where I tell her I just need to decompress for a few minutes

    2 miles (3-4 minutes) from my house in a very nice area to a very small joint forces base (3 buildings) also in a very nice area. Didn't even know it existed but now that I've found it I don't want to leave.

    1hr 15 minutes. From NJ to Manhatten over NJ Transit. Its a train journey, which kind of makes up for the long time. I can just sit down and read stuff or do some work.

    I've always thought that one's wiliness to put up with a commute is such a personal choice. And life circumstances and opportunities can play such a huge role.

    The longest commute that I used to do was about 6 hours one way - about 350 miles. I would travel down on a Monday morning and return on Friday morning. I did that about 2 weeks a month for about 2 years.

    The shortest commute was a walk down the hallway to my home office.

    I've also done commutes of about 200 miles one way each week. Daily commutes on public transportation of about 60 minutes. And daily commutes in metro-areas of about 90 minutes.

    I guess it all kinda just depends on what you will put up with for the opportunity.

    On most days, I can get to work in 15 minutes. No highway driving. It's one of the things that have kept me here so long, which is a gift and a curse

    My old job I literally lived across the street ( was a .6 mile drive)... That has its own headaches besides running into colleagues/clients. My boss at the time lived in Michigan. He knew how close I lived to the office (contact center) anytime the site had major issues, Bob would call and be like, "I know you are not on call, but can you run across the street and reboot such and such box?

    I commute 50 miles each way and it takes me 1 hour. It's not always about how far it is but how aggravating it is. Most of mine is on uncrowded open highway. I have had shorter commutes that were stop and go with bad traffic patterns. I get tired on the last 15 min coming home but moving is probably not an option at this point.

    Roughly 20 minutes one way so total daily commute 40 minutes. I work in a small office, I could probably attempt to go full time remote at some point in the future.
