How Long Does It Take You To Get To School/work?

Fri Feb 01, 2002 5:55 am

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.

Regards

Dan

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.

Trip home: 2.4 miles in 5 min.

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

Whats wrong with you people? Do you live like 5 school districts down and go to a diffrent school district? How come it takes you so long? I live by the school, takes me 10 minutes to walk, mostly because im freezing in the morning. Too close to drive.

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.

Living just off LHR's Northern runway, and working in the BA maint, base, it takes me about 15 mins. About 6-7 of that is on buses which serve the LHR perimeter, and so are free.
If I walk it about 25-30 mins.
Petertenthije, the public transport in Holland is bad? We are told that the UK's is the worst in Europe and everything on the continent is near perfect!

School:

Get from home to the bus stop : 3 minutes- 5 minutes (ride from mommy)

Ride on the god-damn bus for like 10 minutes because the driver has to go throught Butthole, Pennsylvania to get to school.

Oh, about 30 minutes to drive to school. Unless I take the freeway (which is unpredictable around here), in which case it can take from 15-45 minutes. Thank God I have a reverse commute-- our freeways are the worst in the country.

It takes me between 40 minutes (which hardly ever happens) and 1 hour 30 mins to get to school via bus and subway, depending on the wait for the bus, traffic and the type of driver. Only about 15 minutes of that time is on the subway. I'm so fed up with the unreliability of the buses, usually three come at once and then none for 30 minutes!!!

It takes me only about 10 minutes to get to work on the bus - and that route is much more reliable. In the summer I walk sometimes, it takes about 40 mins.

Here it comes;

1. By bus from my village to the village of Alphen aan den Rijn, 20 minutes

2. By train from Alphen aan den Rijn to the city of Leiden, 20 minutes

3. By train from Leiden to the city of Haarlem, 24 minutes

4. From Haarlem central station by train or bus to school, 15 minutes

The way back is faster because the connections are better then Big thumbs up

All depends, 8 minutes when I can drive 10MPH above the speed limit, 15 minutes when I'm stuck behind some guy driving 35 in the 40 (on a road that should have a speed limit of 45MPH), 30 minutes on a bad weather day because everyone freaks out when a single rain drop falls, 15 minutes when the police have traps set on the way to school, 45 minutes on the bus, 15 minutes when taking alternate route #1, and 25 min on alt rt #2 when every other way is backed up to where it would take me 45 min to get to school.
I don't know, so this is my signature.

I am 17 miles from school, takes me 20-25 minutes to drive in the morning, if I come home right aftr school it also only takes 25 mins, but after about 5pm it takes around 35-40mins. Walking would take hours, and using the train would be very inconvienent.
