    I am calling all PC member to give their driving distance to work. This is to create a data base to compare with the 2009 survey of the US Car Commute Distance.

    I do not commute, each day I drive to a different client. Many of those clients are in Clarksdale MS so I used that mileage, I think my max commute is 250 miles a day.

    4 days per week. (Work from home on Friday)
    20.6 miles there, 20.8 back.* 22.6 each way if I take the fastest route on the Interstate but I only take the Interstate route in bad weather when it's flashing at 45mph. :D

    (Wife is 17.8 each way. There's a shorter route with worse terrain and a longer route with better terrain but the traffic's more difficult. She drives the Prius twice a week.)

    Where's my Plug-in-Prius 50?

    * Terrain and a one-way system makes the longer route better going home. Theoretically the shorter route would be better but it depends too heavily on traffic and lights.

    I have two options: 18 miles and 24 miles.
    The 18 mile route is faster but more hectic.
    The 24 mile route takes longer but is more casual and better mileage.

    I voted per the 18 mile route since that's the most logical route anyone would take thus proving that I'm not logical.

    My commute is about 1 mile. I usually walk once the weather gets nice.

    0.8 miles one way. The only reason I drive to the office is because I have client meetings a couple times a week and I have clients all over SoCal.

    I have a couple of questions about the poll.

    Since this is posted in the PIP forum, are you looking for information only from PIP owners? And, considering that the data is intended to be compared to US government results, are you seeking information only from US owners?

    No, the poll is for all members and all type of vehicles.
    The data is to to see how much correlation to the government survey and to realize the EV range of plugins will meet majority of the commute distances.

    This is a multiple choice poll, you can vote for your wife too.

    My commute is in the Metro Washington, DC area. I travel 20 miles through the city and surrounding suburbs. It is not the mileage that drives me up the wall, it is the bumper to bumper traffic. I traded in my 2011 Corolla for the Prius because of the city traffic.
