The 38 line can take you to 9th and K. From there you'll need to take the 30 or the 62 the rest of the way. ... more

Unfortunately, the choices aren't great. I've actually done this once before, and am not sure I'd do it again. There is the Commuter Shuttle Bus that runs from various places in El Dorado County to the Amtrak Train station in Sacramento. Or you can take the city train system from Folsom to the Amtrak Train station in Sac. From there, you take an Amtrak train to Emeryville (or you can get off at a BART station along the way). In Emeryville they'll shuttle you over on a bus to SF.

These options take a while, and were the best I could find at the time.

Anyone else have other suggestions?

To answer your question, the commute time from El Dorado Hiils will be approximately 30 - 45mins depending on the traffic at that time. The commute time from Carmichael will be about the same, Again it all depends on the traffic at that time. The good news is that you avoid the peak traffice times which occurrs around 7:30am - 9am and again at 4:30pm - 6pm. If you are looking to reduce your commute time, as gas prices continue to rise, you might want to consider other areas such as River Park, East Sacramento, Glenbrook and possibly Curtis Park or Land Park. They are all very nice areas and your commute time will be reduced significantly. I hope this helps.

I am guessing Amtrak (just as in the last question you had asked regarding Livermore) is your best bet -

Commute these days is always of prime concern when talking about the cost of gas. Depending on where in Placer County depends on how long it will take you to arrive in Sacramento. Typically, if you live in Roseville and traveling during the rush hour, it will take about 30-45 minutes. Interstate 80 is well traveled by those who live in Placer County and working in Sacramento so you won't feel alone. There are some great homes in Roseville and Rocklin as well as Lincoln. ... more

Such an important question! Quality of life, work success and personal activites can be totally affected when you sit in traffic to and from work. I've always found taking transit to be a relaxing trip - let someone else drive while I read the newspaper or space out.

As a regular bus commuter, it's my automatic and natural response that the closer you are to downtown, the better the commute. However, many communities have bus service that is either direct to dntn or to a light rail station. Commuting in the late evenings can be difficult; if you're working nights and weekends, your commute timeline may be affected.

East Sacramento, Land Park, Curtis Park, River Park and South Land Park have direct bus lines. While Hollywood Park has light rail service. These are areas I've commuted to/from and the trips are relaxing and efficient.

If you break down your price range and home specifications (sq ft/yard side/home style & age), it's easier to identify what neighborhood fits your needs. Take a look at for more information.
