In a recent Statesman article, Ben Wear drove from near Rick Perry’s home in Barton Creek Estates to the State Capitol at 12th and Congress. He said it took him 31 minutes to go 11.2 miles. I have a 20 mile commute from my house to just south of downtown where I work. Here is the breakdown of my commute depending when I leave.
Leave at 7:00AM: 35 minutes
Leave at 7:30AM to 8:40AM: one hour
8:40 to 9:10: 35 minutes
9:10 and later: 25 to 30 minutes
Leave a comment about how long your commute is and where you are going to work. It would be interesting to see where people are going to work and how long it takes. Also any shortcuts you use to get to work would be interesting to know for other readers.
One trick that I use when I hear on the radio that there is a closure between City Park Road and River Place Blvd on 2222 is to cut through River Place and come out through the toney Westminster Glen onto City Park Road.
