Toronto ranked last in survey of commuting times
Study by Toronto Board of Trade calls finding “embarrassing”
It takes people in Greater Toronto an average of 80 minutes to commute to work, round trip, the study found.
That’s 24 minutes slower than Los Angeles, and the worst among 19 cities including New York, London, Chicago and Berlin.
While acknowledging that the measurements for some U.S. cities may be underestimated, the study called Toronto’s performance “embarrassing.” The figures blend commute times for both drivers and public transit users.
“Toronto’s commuting problems give rise to serious congestion issues,” the report notes.
