    I guess it would depend on what you consider to be a reasonable commute.

    Raleigh is 28 miles from Chapel Hill. I am guessing based on the four years we spent visiting Chapel Hill that the commute can be as variable as it is in most cities based on weather, accidents etc. I've personally seen it take over an hour to get to RDU Airport from Chapel Hill on a Sunday due to construction on I-40 when it is normally about 15-20 minutes.

    I live in Dallas and my home is 19 miles from my office. On a good day with no traffic it's about 20-25 minutes; in rush hour it goes up an extra 10-15 and if there is an accident on any of the roads...who knows? I would guess that The Triangle is no different.

    that is something i was really interested in, how common is it to travel between the points of the research triangle? if my wife works in raleigh, would it be feasible to live in chapel hill? are there town more central to the triangle?

    Traveling between Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill is very common. I'm a Chapel Hill native and traveling between the 3 places within a couple hours is a very common occurrence for me. Commuting from Raleigh to Chapel Hill is very feasible and it's pretty smooth if you take advantage of the side roads instead relying solely on I-40.
