If you commute or know someone who does, you know the Bay Area can have some pretty big traffic tie-ups. We wanted to get a better idea of the commute in some of the biggest trouble spots.

So we sent four ABC7 staff members from San Francisco to the Downtown Berkeley BART Station, which is about a 12 mile journey. One person took AC Transit, another BART, a third tried to hop into a Casual Carpool and ABC7 News reporter Lyanne Melendez drove.

Follow all the different ways here to see which was the fastest.

And follow our journey below and on Twitter to see how long it takes us to get from San Francisco to the Downtown Berkeley Station via Casual Carpool.
