I am now a commuter. I bike to the Belmont Caltrain station from our apartment, and then I leave my bike at the station, and then I get on the Caltrain to go to Stanford. From the Palo Alto Caltrain Station, I take the Marguerite (Stanford's shuttle servie) to my lab. When I get off work, I do the opposite. It takes me about 30-35 mins each way, which is about 10 mins longer than if I were to drive to school. I don't think it's too bad of a commute, just that I have to be more efficient in lab now since I cannot come and go as I please.
