Short commutes in Idaho means less time driving around the valley and more quality time with the people most important to you.
Travel time from Meridian, Kuna, Nampa, and Caldwell into Boise on average is anywhere from 20-40 minutes. Even during rush hour, it’s seldom more than an hour from one extreme side of the valley to the other side. Imagine getting off work at 5:00 and being home by 5:30 while it’s still light outside. There’s time for a family bike ride, stroll on the Greenbelt, play at the park, and have dinner with the family.
The Greenbelt also makes commuting much more enjoyable in Boise. Many residents use this 25-mile stretch of a paved multi-use path along a nearby river to commute on bikes, e-bikes, and scooters to work, go shopping, dine out and play.
It’s not just your work commute that is shorter but commuting in Idaho to amazing outdoor adventures too! With fewer people in Idaho, there is just less traffic on the roads when it’s time for a road trip. Explore lakes, mountains, hot springs, old mining towns, and more and seldom be stopped longer than a few minutes at traffic lights. And with mostly two-lane highways to explore many of these places, Idaho is wise to put in slow-vehicle turnouts along the way, which most courteous drivers take advantage of to let folks pass.
