New York City Ranks #5 in the Top 10 Worst Traffic Cities

NewYorkThis 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.

According to the report, New York City, often referred to as the City of Dreams, ranks number five in the top 10 worst traffic cities in the U.S. right behind Austin. New York commuters spent an average of 53 hours sitting behind the wheel hopefully paying attention to surrounding traffic and not day dreaming.

New York City commuters experienced a 20 percent increase in overall travel time due to bad traffic. So what used to be a 45 minute drive from Manhattan to JFK Airport on a good day 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.
