Try 1.5 hours each way, in my case... It would be 20 minutes shorter if I drove to the BART station instead of biking, but since the parking lot is full by about 7:45, and you can't park in any of the businesses in the surrounding area...
I'm screwed either way, because traffic is bumper to bumper in the westward direction when I leave the house. I prefer BART to driving because at least I can read on the train.
