No, this is Poland. She lives in Szczecin and works in Świnoujście - city situated mainly on the islands of Uznam (Usedom) and Wolin. These islands have no road connection - no bridge, no tunnel, just 2 ferries. Under current plans, a tunnel will be built under the river before 2013.

From my appartment to the University it is about 6km distance.

Option 1: Car. 10-15 Minutes.
Option 2: Bus and walk: 40-50 Minutes.
Option 3: Just walk: 70-80 Minutes.

And about every 2nd weekend I go home from my university city (Trier) to my hometown which is 160km away.

Option 1: I ride my car.
Option 2: Someone picks me up with his car who's also driving home.
Option 3: I take the train to Koblenz (120km) where a friend who lives in my hometown and works in Koblenz picks me up with his car.

And as i have no extra costs for using the train and bus (semester fee of 172 Euros includes free train rides from Trier to Saarbrücken, Koblenz and halfway to Cologne (because the other half is in another federal state) and free bus rides in and around Trier) I often use train and bus.

From my place to the University

It's between 1 hour and 45 minutes if I go on transmilenio.

If I go by car it's about 30 minutes....but the route is slightly different.

4 hours a day on commuting? That must be tiring.

I tried another route today. It was no good either. I tried the route south and west around the center, but it was totally jammed. I wonder if the ambulances ever save people's live, because the hospital is in the middle of a gridlock.

I commute from Richmond Hill (suburb) to the Financial District in Toronto. By car it is about 1.5 - 2 hours, since I drive during rush hour. In the end it is about a 4 hours in the car a day.

This is my Commute to and from my University
Vancouver, BC, Canada
Option 1(Which I use most often)By Car:
It takes around 35 minutes for the drive(single trip) but can differ by a LOT. When the traffic lights are all green and the average traffic on the road is fast, I have made it up the mountain in 25 minutes. When it is rush hour or when there are traffic problems (ie. Car accident), holdups will make the commute time upwards of 1.5 hours.


Option 2 By Public Transit:
It takes around an average of 1.5 hour for a single trip and given the frequency of traffic holdups lately due to traffic accidents and construction work all over the city due to a booming real estate, commute times with public transit has reached an average of around 2 hours(single trip). Some of my friends living in the similar area took around 3 hours once just for a single trip up the mountain. On top of that, it snows on the mountain very often in the cooler months and busses that go up the mountain always breakdown!!!


Although I want to commute, but it is just too much of a waste of my time!!!

At least, was it necessary to open the bridge?

and have You tried part of today's route (from north to roundabout at the motorway) and southern part of yellow route from this picture?

Well, the bridge opens for a vessel to pass. Quite stupid in the middle of rushhour.

We have it a lot, because a lot of shipping here. There are even drawbridges in the busiest motorways.

I had a nice trip today, Culemborg-Goor-Haaksbergen 161km. The A1 is horrible though, even on a friday evening it's filled with trucks on the right lane and cars driving nervously 90-100km/h on the left lane. the return trip was better, almost no trucks. Cruise control, set on 140km/h, all the way!

For your curiosity: I made a map with almost all cities and villages i've been with my taxi in the last 2-3 years, the red circle marks my town and startingpoint. The many villages near my town are not on the map because then it would become one big white blob
