The History of My Commute

1976: One hour by bus from Osseo (an outer-ring suburb) into downtown Minneapolis.

1977: Half hour by car from Osseo into downtown Minneapolis.

1977: Twenty minutes by bus from Saint Louis Park (an inner-ring suburb) into downtown Minneapolis.

1979: Fifteen minutes by car from Saint Louis Park to Saint Paul.

1981: Twelve minutes by car from South Minneapolis to downtown Saint Paul.

1985: Ten minutes by car from South Minneapolis to South Minneapolis.

1992: Five minutes by car from Saint Paul to Saint Paul.

2000: Under one minute on foot (working at home).

I don’t understand why people put up with long commutes.
