This week, we released the seventh annual INRIX Traffic Scorecard. Utilizing trillions of traffic data points gathered from crowd-sourced traffic information, the Scorecard is the world’s most in-depth, data-driven look at traffic congestion statistics and data in metropolitan cities in the United States.
Commuters in Boston took an extra week of vacation last year, only they spent it sitting in behind the wheel stuck in traffic, probably along the Mass Pike or 93 headed into the city. This equates to 40 hours sitting in a car sipping coffee, listening to commentators discuss the future of the Red Sox or the recent downfall of the Celtics.
Additionally, Bostonians experienced an 18 percent increase in overall travel time due to bad traffic. So what used to be a 45 minute commute from the North Shore to the Financial District is now closer to an hour.
If you’re a data geek or just want to know what you can expect from traffic in your city, head on over to the Traffic Scorecard to see where your city ranks. Be sure to check out the top 25 U.S. cities with the worst traffic below.
