Commute from San Jose to Sunnyvale in summer

by summerintern

Hello,
I am a grad student who will be interning in Sunnyvale for the summer. I have been offered accommodation at Sanjose and have to decide about how commuting from San Jose to Sunnyvale everyday. Mapquest shows the distance as 18 miles. I have looked up erideshare and carpoolworld and have not been able to find carpool/vanpool options. I would prefer to use the public transportation if possible.
Any thoughts/ideas?

Thanks.

Thanks, I am exploring and it looks like there could be buses connecting the places.

Another option would be to move closer to Sunnyvale. If your plans are not set in stone, you could check Craigslist (www.craigslist.org) and find a roommate in the area.

As with everything done in the internet, be *extremely* careful and check things out. I did and I found two wonderful renters for my home (not room mates, just rented the home) - but you do need to do your homework and meet them first..

18 miles? If you are that far, it sounds like you are somewhere in South SJ. Yeah, your only option is Light Rail or by bus if you can't find any pooling.

Try this website: http://www.511.org/

In my opinion it is THE resource for Bay Area route/commute planning, including van/carpool/rideshare options, public transit routes/timetables/prices, and other commute options.

Somewhat repetitious I suppose...

Where exactly in San Jose and Sunnyvale makes a difference. If both ends are near either light rail or El Camino Real public transit will work nicely. If not, it may be harder. You've got the VTA site, figure everytime you have to change buses it will likely add 1/2 hour to your commute.

South San Jose can be a bad commute even with a car, though other parts of San Jose to Sunnyvale shouldn't be too bad.

If this is a large company you are coming to - ask them about carpooling. Also some companies give employees & contractors (so probably interns too) free vta passes, ask about this also.

This area is really setup to be best for people with cars.

About craigslist - that's where I found both my current job and apartment. Definitely give them a look. The other person warning about being cautious because it's internet? Just be as normally cautious as you would be, it's not like you know the people who place newspaper ads either. Looking near San Jose State and Santa Clara University maybe good as that will put you near the 22 bus, which is a very useful one, also likely to be summer sublets as students in these schools may be going somewhere else for the summer themselves.

Travel Tips for San Jose

As a college student, working...

by Travelrus

As a college student, working in Paris, France for a month and then spending 2 months travelling throughout Europe with my fiance, Bob. My fondest memory of San Jose is when I was a child growing up there. The valley only had a population of 75,000 and there were beautiful orchards across the entire valley floor. We are now Silicon Valley. The orchards are gone and we are home to over a million people.

Mount Hamilton, Lick Observatory

by acfall

There is an amazing observatory on top of Mount Hamilton, which is accessed near the Alum Rock area of San Jose. There are multiple telescopes in the white domes, which can be seen from many of San Jose's freeways on clear days. If you go to the top in the daytime, you can see the smog line across the sky above the city. During the summer there is an event at which those who purchase tickets can look through the big telescope which is in the largest dome, and under which James Lick is buried.

Saratoga Annual Rotary Fine Arts Show

by Kiisu

The first Sunday in May is the annual Saratoga Rotary Fine Arts Show, held at West Valley College in Saratoga. It is the largest, juried, one day, fine arts show in the western USA. Enjoy a day filled with art (to buy or admire), entertainment, and food in a beautiful setting - and the weather is almost always wonderful! The local school across the street used to hold a pancake breakfast fund raiser that same day - if they still do, go support the kids over there as well.

Limitless spending opportunities

by nomadig about Gucci

Santana Row is an excellent area to get rid of your money and exceed all credit card limits. Gucci is one of the excellent choices for limitless spending opportunities.

The Gucci shop on Santana Row is very airy and the staff is extremely helpful and attentive, as they should be in stores with such pricetags. As usual with these stores, the ratio between the number of garments and square feets is rather small.

You either like Gucci style or then you hate it. Hopefully your taste matches with the limits of your wallet. Otherwise, try to avoid temptations of the store.

VTA Train

by rmiya84778

VTA Train is nice way to explore San Jose.
On June 22, 2004, VTA opened new route that now goes into East San Jose. From south San Jose, train now heads west to Mt. View and east towards Capitol Expressway. You can now take VTA train to Great America Mall in Milpitas. See new VTA route map for NEW stops that are open in East San Jose. In future, VTA will expand to Los Gatos. When I need exercise, I take VTA Train to explore San Jose.
