To fight traffic congestion, invest in bikes and mass transit


A cyclist in Portland, Oregon. A new report on traffic congestion suggests that the city’s investment in multimodal transit have helped lessen congestion and traffic jams. Shutterstock

Drivers won’t be happy about the 2019 Traffic Index. In major U.S. cities, commuters are spending more time stuck behind the wheel. An in-depth analysis of road congestion in 403 cities in 56 countries found just 90 showed any kind of measurable decrease in gridlock, with many registering double digits gains in the amount of time spent stuck in gridlock. But behind the sobering data is a solution, and it doesn’t involve building more roads.
