Anyone commute from Santa Cruz to Google?

Sep 27, 2018 28 Comments

Google Maps says 45 minutes. Not bad.

Vs. San Fran says 1 hour. Shuttle, so you're not driving, but still that's a long time each way.

      Why would Google maps lie to me

    • Because you didn’t set it to the right time ie when people come and go, or you set it going the reverse, to santacruz in the morning or to google in evening.

      That being said, I take the shuttle at the last stop in San Francisco, and it’s a very short distance from that stop to the freeway, so my experience probably isn’t the norm

    • I believe it that’s not bad

    I used to commute from Santa Cruz to Watsonville....and laugh as I watched northbound 17 become a parking lot around 6:15am.
    It’s a 45-minute drive at 11pm. During rush hour you’re looking at 75-90 minutes. Easily.

    I don’t really understand how people find the difference between 45 minutes and 1 hour so large

      I don't think it's large, I just want to live on the beach instead

    just fyi San Francisco and Santa Cruz are totally different cities, the commute time is very far from being the single aspect to consider.

    Fyi, bay area rush five hours are 5:30AM-10AM and 2:45PM-8:30PM
    Peaks about in the middle of each range

    Your commute from the city to Mountain View would be much more enjoyable than Santa Cruz to Mountain View

      Why? Santa Cruz to MTV gives you Mountains in the background

      I said that because you mentioned a shuttle in the SF version, although Google may actually have one to/from Santa Cruz, in which case it’ll be more beautiful for sure

    It is a two lines road anf there is almost always an accident happens because people drive like idiot going down the hill. I thought and love the idea of living in Santa Cruz but commute will be ridiculous.

  • The commute Los Gatos to Mountain View takes at least 45 minutes, usually closer to an hour and 1h25+ or so is about a once a week occurrence. Getting back is often worse. Double it whenever it rains or fogs (often). I can’t imagine adding all of 17 on top of that.
