It’s no secret traffic congestion in Toronto is pretty bad, but the good news is, the problem is getting better, slightly.
That’s the finding of the latest TomTom Traffic Index, which looks at cities all over the world with the worst gridlock.
Traffic patterns from nearly 300 cities in 38 countries were studied.
The latest report finds motorists aren’t spending as much time sitting in their vehicles as in years past.
In Toronto, the average driver saved about 11 hours NOT sitting in heavy traffic, marking the first decrease since 2012. The drop is being attributed to better infrastructure and new government-led traffic management policies.
Even though there has been improvement, Toronto still ranks second in the top 3 most congested cities in Canada, right behind Vancouver, and ahead of Montreal.
In 2015, the most congested day in the city was Saturday February 21.
Calgary remains Canada’s least congested city.
