I do 35 kms daily, from vashi to nariman point one way. I use the mahul/BPT - toll road , so the time taken is 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes early morning at 8 a.m. or after 9 a.m. and evening its close to about 90 minutes.

I work from home. But, every night I drive aimlessly around the city and nearby highways (paagal chakkar as my mother calls it)

I usually do about 15km each way because I take the longer but less traffic route to work.
If I take the shortest route it would be around 8km each way.

I literally work from home too (Office building is to the side of my house -- and I uh..., stay/live in my office). So, no commuting.

I do about 100-150 kms on weekends, and maybe another 50-100kms on weekdays if I have work in town (Kochi). I travel to Trivandrum occasionally (once in 2-3 months) so that's about 550 kms per trip (incl. driving in Trivandrum city).

100 kms roughly per day. Ranges between 70 and 100 depending on which road is congested and which route I choose to take.

Average time taken in the mornings- 40 kms 20 mins.

Average time taken in peak evening times - 40 to 60 kms, 1hr 15 mins upto 2hr 30 mins max.

Average time taken to return after 9 pm - 40 kms, 30 mins.

NOTE: These timings are no longer constant, and depend on which road is closed for renovation or which roundabout is being converted into a signal or vice-versa.

I commute 9kms one way if i take the shorter route and 12km if the longer one ( i prefer the longer one and not due to traffic ) and it takes me 15 mins in the morning and about 30 mins in evening traffic around 7-8pm traffic peaks in Hyderabad. But, this will change to 15kms each way from next month ( office is shifting)

During weekends,

Additional 200kms+ in the car.
200Kms+ each week on my P150

I commute just over 1 KM either way from home to work. So the correct option for me is the first one. It could very well have been the last one too.

Exclamation 35 Km daily

My daily traveling distance is 28 - 35 km.

I can go to office via the main city route or bypass/highway route.
City route - 14 km oneway, with n number of traffic signals.
Bypass/highway route - 17+ km oneway with NO traffic signal stop!

140+ distance or speed??

If you are talking of speed I just wouldnt believe you. I take the necklace road everyday from Banjara Hills to SD Road (Secunderabad) & even during the lunch time, when the traffic is very thin, it would be a max of 100. 120 might be in a short duration but 140+...I have never seen anyone do that on that road & that too your timings are peak.

Ive taken that road from 6:30 morning & also 1:30AM (late nite).

If you are driving at that speed on this road, you need to be more responsible.

Well my commute distance changes .. But generally its about 40 km in one direction... Home-Office-All Factories-Home.. That route would be Pashan to S.B. Road to Bhosari MIDC back to Pashan... The longest distance from Office to Factory which is about 20 km takes a good 45 mins in regular traffic.. On the way back the time varies depending on evening traffic congestion...

Around 700-1000 kms weekly including 2 Mumbai-Pune-Mumbai trips which is ~2.5 hrs one way, and I can say it's fun
