Oy the commute! From Saratoga to Mountain View
April 16, 2008 12:26 PM Subscribe
My fiance and I like Saratoga and Los Gatos. He works in Mountain View off 101/Shoreline. He'd like no more than a 25 minute commute. He works normal 9-5 hours generally. Google maps indicates that this commute could be done in less than 30 minutes even with traffic. He's extremely skeptical. He's tried testing the drive, but on those days he's done the drive he's felt traffic was unusually light. (Usually there are backups on 101, but on the days he tried driving the commute 101 was flowing like water).
So is there anyone out there who has done this commute who can provide a realistic picture of what it would be like?
