Best And Worst Cities For Commuting

According to a study from a firm in the U.K., our metro population consists of 2.463,431, and the average time spent commuting is 77 minutes.

The study was an analysis of the best and worst cities for commuting and can be found here. It also compared cost efficiency, average journey distance by kilometres, and the average number of hours spent in congestion.

Overall, Vancouver ranked #33.

What’s more, only three other Canadian cities were on the list. Those cities were Ottawa at #38, Montreal at #46 and Toronto at #69.

Ranking as the best cities overall is Nice (France), Cuenca (Ecuador), and Bilbao (Spain).

Perhaps our commuting system isn’t as bad as we often assume? Take our poll above and share your thoughts in the comments below!
