Average commuter spent 84 hours stuck in Toronto traffic in 2014
It’s not startling for most Torontonians, but the city has been named second-worst city for driving in Canada, just behind Vancouver.
According to TomTom’s Traffic Index, the average commuter in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver loses around 84 hours a year from being delayed in traffic.
Across Canada, the average time lost to traffic amounts to around 79 hours.
The study also found that overall congestion in Canada had increased two percent over the past year, and that traffic had worsened in five out of seven major cities measured, with Calgary and Vancouver’s traffic congestion rate staying the same.
It was also found that across the country, Thursday’s ride home from work is the worst, except for in Edmonton, Quebec and Calgary, where it’s Wednesday or Friday.
