When COVID-19 made its presence known to society last year, simple things we knew were disrupted. Going out to eat and drink were considered dangerous activities. You couldn’t hug your family or friends. It also prompted many people to work from home.
It’s been a whole year now, and things are starting to get back to “normal.” The vaccine rollout is going smoothly and allowing more places to open up. That means we’ll be able to go back to the things that we love to do.
But another problem it brings is commuting to work. Most people have been working from home for the last year, which significantly decreased road traffic. However, as people get back to commuting to work, they’ll need to start timing their trips to ensure they get there on time.
Traveling By Car
It must feel weird traveling to work by car now. For the last year, we’ve been able to work from home in our pajamas. We didn’t have to get our work outfits ready the night before or throw something on the morning of.
There was no stopping to get gas on the way to work. But we seem to be back there now, and that’s somewhat of a good thing.
If you’re traveling by car to LA from Riverside, using a car is the fastest way to get there. It will only take you about 57 minutes to get there. But that depends on a lot of factors such as:
- Road construction
- Car accidents
- Random morning traffic
I’m sure you didn’t miss these things when working from home, but there is a way to reduce your morning stress.
If you did that, you’d be able to save time in the mornings and be more productive at work because you don’t have to worry about sitting in traffic on the way home. Our Riverside office space is central enough, so you’ll get home in a matter of minutes.

Commuting By Train
Some people prefer commuting by train to work because it’s that happy medium between taking your car and the bus. There’s no traffic in your way, and trains cover more ground than busses with fewer stops.
Traveling by train is the second fastest way to get to work. It’s going to cost you between $10-$15 and will take you about an hour and a half to get to your office in LA.
Another bonus of traveling to train by work is that it’s an eco-friendly way to travel. Trains produce fewer emissions than cars, which is excellent, but there is an even better alternative.
It reduces your chances of catching COVID-19. You’ll be socially distanced from people and not on a cramped train with your mask on. If you did need to catch the train to LA for work, you can leave our Riverside campus and walk one block to the train station.
Catching the Bus
The bus is probably the most common transportation method that people use to get to work. Buses come pretty frequently, but take some time to get you to your destination.
To get to LA from Riverside by bus takes around 2 hours. You’ll probably be getting a 30-day pass, so that will cost you between $60 – $95, depending on the one you get.
Then to top it off, during your commute, you’ll be on a crowded bus. No one wants to be on a cramped bus, especially as we’re creeping slowly towards the summer. Also, with COVID-19 still around, it’s not the safest place to be.
If you could work in Riverside a few times a week using our TailoredSpace coworking campus, that would reduce your commuting stress. You’d be able to work efficiently because now, four hours out of your day aren’t dedicated to your commute.
