SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Do you regularly commute to San Francisco — if so, you’re not alone. 

new study by Property Shark compiled the top 10 cities in the Bay Area where residents live and commute from to San Francisco. In the top two spots were the peninsula cities of South San Francisco and San Bruno. 

If you commute to the city and are looking for affordability, researchers say San Leandro may be your best bet with the median home price at $570,000. 

According to the study, Bay Area drivers meet at three central areas when commuting to the City by the Bay — Interstate 280, the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Researchers say this presents more of a challenge for drivers compared to commuters in Los Angeles.

Overall, if you’re looking for the easiest commute to San Francisco, suburbs along the Peninsula are the best, according to the study.

Regardless which San Francisco suburb you live in, Bay Area residents on average spend 29 minutes each way commuting — which adds up to just more than 10 days per year. 

If the traffic and housing costs are making you consider a move down south, Los Angeles commuters spend about the same amount of time commuting — about an hour a day. 

As far as the best Southern California suburn to live in for commuting? The study says Thousand Oaks is the total package . It’s safe, affordable and has an average commute time to LA of 26 minutes one way.
