Commuting to Boston from Wellesley or Metro West

One of the biggest factors to consider for a buyers looking to purchase in Wellesley, or Metro West, is what their commute into Boston will be like.

I have had many clients make the transition from city living to buying in the suburbs west of Boston. For those that want to drive into the city, I can tell you that during the Labor Day-Memorial Day months, you need to get through the Weston Tolls (inbound) by 6:45 to avoid tapping the brakes most of the way into the city. If you are on the pike after 7:15, you are most likely going to have a bumper to bumper – slow ride in (approximately 30 minutes to get to the Brighton tolls (where a big back up will await you for getting into Cambridge). Driving the Back Bay will offer much less resistance.
