I've lived in this area or many years but have never had to go in this direction at commute time. How bad is it and when is it bad? I have a chance at a job that is in Dublin, I would be getting off at around 3:15 to head home to Walnut Creek area. My start time I think would be around 8:30am so I would have to leave around 7:45am? Am I right that the return trip would be easier? Any commuters seeing this? Thanks.
