I thought that this was quite boring, until I heard that some of the teachers at my school take up to 2 hours to get to school each day!!!  Wow!

So how long does it takes you? I walk, just over a mile and it takes me 15-20minutes.

1 hour 15 minutes, not counting the time I leave early. I ussually leave 30 minutes early because the public transportation system here (Holland) is a mess.

I can walk in 10 minutes or I can take a free bus that makes me leave 15 minutes early. I live 6 blocks south of central campus.

If I go to school alone (which is boring) it takes me about 5 minutes. But if I go with my neighbour (Evelina) it takes us about 15 - 30 minutes... We just have so much fun on our way to school... I have detention on Wednesday because we have been to late to many times now.. but who cares?

In the morning by car is possible to make it in 10 mins.
When I come back, by bus it takes at least 1h30mins.

To school: 1:10 on Boston's regional train system and the walks to/from the stations.

To home: 1:05 on public transportation (bus/subway).

Oh, if I drove, maybe 35 minutes, but I don't own a car, and my school is about 30 km (20 mi) on the opposite end of Boston.

15min drive to bus stop, 1 hour bus ride, 30min walk to school from the bus station. All in all, about 1hr, 45mins. But, when it snows, it can take almost 3 hours. Doesn't bother me much though, I sleep or do work on the bus, and get lots of exercise from all the walking. I actually enjoy it  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

5 miles to work, using the bus (I don't drive): during school/university term time it varies between 40 mins and 1 hour but during school/university holidays it comes down to 15 to 20 minutes.

From 2003/2004, I guess it will come down to 10 minutes  Smile

When driving, it takes me around 5-10 minutes (depending on traffic around school). I leave home at 7:30am and arrive at school around 7:40am. School starts at 7:47am and ends at 3:03pm. I usually take the bus (the public one) home. Sometimes I miss it because it comes at 3:08pm and I get out there to late to catch it. Once I get off the bus, It takes me about 6 minutes to walk home. I usually get home at around 3:17pm.

My Global Studies teacher lives in New Rome Hilliard (a suburb). It's pretty far away (not sure how far though).

As I work from home, no more than 15 seconds to get to my office from anywhere on my property. Sitting in the traffic for an hour plus is for the birds.

If I could just fly the chopper and land it in the parking lot at school it'd take me about 5 minutes.
