Man riding bike to work

Waking up before the crack of dawn, a quick shower, grabbing some breakfast as you rush out the door, and then joining the thousands of commuters on the freeways all trying to get to their jobs in San Francisco. This is the morning routine for so many people and with the tech job boom of the last few years, the traffic on the 680, 580, 101, Bay Bridge, and Golden Gate Bridge is often at a standstill. A route which normally should take 30 minutes without traffic can take between 1.5 to 2 hours in the morning rush hour and equally as long at the end of the day. We’ve put together a list of commuting alternatives for commuting from the East Bay, North Bay, and even within San Francisco. If the commute is killing you (and you can stand the crazy SF rent) you’ve probably tossed around the idea of moving to San Francisco to be closer to your work. If you decide to make the move, make things simple on yourself and rent plastic moving boxes from us beautifully kind folks at ZippGo. We’ll deliver our green moving bins right to your front door while you finish binge watching the latest season of House of Cards.
