I need to drive from Burbank to Irvine and back on a weekday. Google Maps says the trip time is about 55 minutes, and in current (5pm) traffic it's up to 1 hr 20 minutes. Destination is near the 405/133 interchange; start point is two miles west of Downtown Burbank.
I can't arrive in Irvine earlier than 8am or later than 5:30pm.
What's the best time to leave to minimize the time I'm sitting in traffic?
