VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – This week’s winner in Vancouver’s Worst Commute contest starts her day at 5:30 a.m.

Danielle Bronson, 29, works in Coal Harbour but lives in Langley. She wakes up early to take her dog for a walk before beginning her long commute.

“I begin with a drive, about 20 minutes, and then I hop on the West Coast Express in Maple Ridge. Then I have a 45 minute train ride into the city, at which point I transfer onto the SkyTrain for one stop,” she says. “Then I walk about 15 or 20 minutes to my office in Coal Harbour.”

Danielle says it takes her about 3 hours and 30 minutes in total each day for her travels.

She gets $500 for her epic back-and-forth commute, thanks to our partners at Toyo Tires. NEWS 1130 would like to thank everyone who submitted an entry.
