The INRIX 2017 Global Traffic Scorecard uses a methodology to provide a data-rich evaluation of urban travel, traffic health and vibrancy for over 1,360 cities around the world.
The INRIX 2017 Traffic Scorecard is the largest and most detailed study of congestion to date. It includes data on 1,360 cities in 38 countries covering more than 100,000 square miles (250,000 square kilometers) of road and focuses on congestion across all times of the day and week. It confirms, as previous INRIX Traffic Scorecards have found, that congestion is a significant and growing burden on our cities. It is clear that congestion is a global phenomenon, and impacts businesses as well as commuters, small cities as well as large ones and developing as well as developed economies.
