Checking out the Live Traffic view on your favorite live traffic mapping program at the major commute times of the day would be a good start.

All the best,

All of the other Agent's have pointed out some good things to consider. I think the best option for the Fremont or South Bay commuter: Stay in the Sounth Park of Pleasanton. If can use the Sunol Exit , to entrance in AM and Exit in Eve, you will be thrilled.
There are some wonderful neighborhoods, i.e. "Rosepointe", "Ventana Hills" , "Pleasanton Hills' to name a few, that would provide a nice home in the South part of our City.
I have lived in Pleasanton for the last 14 years, and my husband has commuted south all of those years. We have been very happy on the South/ West Side of Pleasanton.
Feel free to email or call with any questions.

Thanks so much for all of the quick responses. I'll take a trip over next week and spend some more time in the town.
If your interested in the sites I've been checking to verify air quality you can check out the EPA air quality link. Also,
cnn money magazine rates Pleasanton with an air quality of 85% vs Santa Cruz or San Rafael at 100%.
Here's a link to more info:

Thanks so much!

Hi Texasrelo,
Pleasanton is a very nice city. What made you land here?
I am a native Californian and we moved to Arizonia for a few years then back to California and chose Pleasanton for the schools, small community great sports program for our children and easy commute to the Silicone Valley.

The prices in Pleasanton are very attractive right now. I have a listing for $549,000 (still may seam very high) for out of towners!!!. San Ramon is a little further north, has good schools and a little less expensive. There are spots in Danville that are very nice as well.

You are lucky because working in Milpitas is not that far of a commute up to Pleasanton, San Ramon or even Walnut Creek, although that may be the furthest you want to go!!! Walnut Creek has awesome schools as well.

Depends on what you are looking for in a city.
Pleasanton has basically no night life, a small down town with reastaurants and shopping. Closes usually by 9pm. We have one bar Red Coats that some of the younger crowd gathers to. a nice amount of restaurants though. Plenty of Blue Ribbon Schools, and lots of sports. Almost any elementary school is fantastic one is duel emergent where they can teach your child spanish all the way up. Dubln is next door but the schools dont rank quite as high. Prices are good and they have the hills.

It really depends on what you are looking for. You shoul come out for a weekend, and visit the above cities.

Good Luck,
JoAnna Jensen

BART is the best if you don't need to have your car during the day; about half hour.
