University of Jena - Leverkusen

Hi,

Would anyone know how I can travel with public transport from Jena to Leverkusen?

I am planning to further my studies in University of Jena and my boyfriend will be working in Leverkusen. Google Map shows that the driving time is 3hrs+ :(

Also, is it possible to travel to-and-fro everyday between the two cities?

Thank you in advance for your help! :)

3 hours driving time? Now that's what I call an optimistic calculation. 4-5 would be more realistic.

Well if you don't mind spending 8+ hours per day on the road or rail...

So I guess the options are:

1) pick a university closer to Leverkusen

2) see BF only on weekends

3) pick a local BF in Jena
