The commute varries can be as little as 15 minutes to as much as 1.5 hours but there are back ways not just the freeway in case you run into one of those major accidents that closes everything down or there is construction traffic. The earlier the better or the later but to be in it right at rush hour will take you the longest amount of time. I have several client's who make this commute daily and if you would like to speak to them I could put you in contact with them and they can tell you there experiences. Let me know how I can be of further assistance.
You do know in September you will have a "Lexus Lane: as they call it which will be a toll lane over the Sunol Grade should you wish to pay to drive but I think many people will take advantage of this during heavy commute times...matter of fact one of my cleint's has negoitiated that his employer pay for this and they have agreed.

Our office is in Pleasanton and I’ve never encountered bad air quality. It can occasionally be a bit odiferous over by the treatment plant, but that only affects a very small part of Pleasanton. I’ve heard of complaints of air quality in parts of the Bay Area such as Milpitas, but never Pleasanton. ... more

Hi Texasrelo,

If you click on the weblink located in the "Web References (optional)" space below it will take you to a “Pleasanton-to-Milpitas” Google map that estimates a 25-minute commute (may or may not really be possible during YOUR commute time).

Even better, if you click on the "Traffic" button you will get real-time traffic; however, to see statistical commute times click on the "change" link right next to where it says "Live Traffic." Next, click the "Traffic at day and time" button and enter the times you want to check for your likely commute time based and historical traffic data!

Best, Steve

This commute will probably take you from 1 hr. to 1.5 hrs. Going to 580 to San Mateo Bridge is probably your best bet but it can get ugly during rush hour. If you leave before 6:30am the traffic will be much lighter. I have clients that commute to the peninsula from Dublin/Pleasanton area and they telecommute a few times a week so it isn't so bad for them. ... more

The commute to Union City should not be that bad from Pleasanton. Heading West on 580 will be pretty clear, until you get to the 238 interchange at which point there is a bottleneck, but there are ways around that. When buying in Pleasanton, you may want to consider West Pleasanton since you are going to commute to Union City.

Good luck,

Chris Kamali
