commute San Francisco - Stanford

dear all,
I am moving to SF in a couple of weeks and I am very excited!
My boyfriend is considering a job at Stanford to join me soon. However, given that I'll be working in the Financial District and I don't drive, we are looking to live in South Beach / Mission Bay, so that he can drive South to work on the 280. Now, Google says it takes roughly 40 minutes (provided that you don't drive at peak hours, e.g. leave at 7.30 in the morning and 5pm to go back). Other sources talks about 1.5hrs... so I wonder if there is someone among you who actually does this commute by car and is able to advise and give a realistic estimate. The Caltrain is excluded as to get to where he would be working, it would take at least 1.5hrs each way.
Thank you in advance for your help!
