Toronto is one of the worst cities in the world when it comes to traffic, a new report suggests.

The report published by INRIX — a traffic analytics company — analyzed four years of mobility data to create its Global Traffic Scorecard.

“It provides travel delay comparisons, collision trends, downtown trips and speeds based on the unique commuting patterns within each metro area,” the report read.

Toronto landed in the seventh spot globally, with drivers losing an average of 118 hours in congestion in 2022.

The city ranked number one for congestion in Canada.

Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Calgary followed Toronto for worst traffic in Canada, with drivers losing 72, 59, 48 and 20 hours in traffic congestion in 2022, respectively.

In off-peak times, drivers in Toronto reached 38 miles per hour in 2022, the report said.

The report found the worst city in the world for congestion was London, England.
