CITY

The 15 busiest cities in the world

Most of the pollution in our cities is caused by the huge number of vehicles on the streets, and the traffic caused by rush hour, accidents, road construction sites and many other issues. But actually, which cities have the most city traffic in the world? A study now reveals this.

In fact, we can now know and monitor city traffic and figure out which are the world's busiest cities thanks to the TomTom traffic index, a system that looks at 389 cities in 56 countries on six continents and measures their traffic impact based on travel times, fuel costs and Co2 emissions.

The most virtuous countries are the United States and Australia, while it fares very poorly for some cities in Europe, Asia and South America.

Indeed, it takes 25 minutes and 30 seconds on average for a 10-km route, with an average speed of 20 km per hour during rush hour.

13 - Mexico City (Mexico)
Mexico's capital is one of the world's true megacities, so it is not surprising that in terms of traffic it is also among the top. In fact, it takes an average of 25 minutes and 40 seconds to travel just 10 kilometers in the city.

12 - Rome (Italy)
The capital of Italy, with its restricted traffic zones, constant construction, potholes in the asphalt and protected areas is a real nightmare for all motorists. Most famously, the "ring road," a stretch of highway that connects several key Roman arteries, is now dreaded by all Italians and tourists arriving by car. Data collected point out that Rome has the same travel times, on average, as Mexico City: 25 minutes and 40 seconds to travel just 10 kilometers in the city.

The first city in the top 10 is the capital of Colombia, Bogota. The times are actually very similar to those in Paris: 26 minutes and 20 seconds for 10 km in the city during rush hours.

9 - Manila (Philippines)
The capital of the Philippines is one of the most crowded and least organized cities in the world. Traffic is one of the biggest problems, worsening since 2021. In fact, it takes as much as 27 minutes to travel 10 km in the city.

8 - Lima (Peru)
Peru's capital city rightfully takes eighth place. It is the most important center in the whole country, and it is not surprising that it is in such a bad state in this respect: the usual 10 km takes 27 minutes and 10 seconds, with an average speed of 18 km/h.

7 - Bucharest (Romania)
We're back to Europe with Bucharest, the capital of Romania somewhat surprisingly in seventh place in this special, not-so-positive ranking. It takes 27 minutes and 20 seconds to travel 10 km, with an average speed of 17 km/h. And just think, it's not even the worst on the list.

6 - Pune (India)
India, it is known, is notorious for overcrowding and its cities with complicated and difficult roads. It also turns out to be more than a minute worse than in 2021, a sign that it is certainly not going in the right direction. Our now customary 10 km takes 27 minutes and 20 seconds, the same as Bucharest.

5 - Milan (Italy)
The capital city of Lombardy, and one of the most famous cities in the world, certainly does not shine when it comes to road conditions. From the Expo onward (2015), the city has found itself in a continuous road construction site, to renovate almost the entire city, which, however, affects the viability of both public transport and cars tried, especially in the morning and when people leave the office to go home (often outside the city limits). So, it takes an average of 27 minutes and 30 seconds to travel 10 km. The average speed during rush hour is 18 km/h.

4 - Sapporo (Japan)
With nearly two million inhabitants, Sapporo, in Hokkaido Prefecture, is the busiest city of all Japan. In fact, it takes as much as 27 minutes and 40 seconds to travel 10 kilometers, peculiar given Japan's well-known organization in the road system.

3 - Dublin (Ireland)
"In Dublin's fair city...it takes a really long time if you decide to drive around." In fact, Ireland's capital is on the podium of the world's busiest cities. A 10-kilometer commute is completed in an average time of 28 minutes and 30 seconds, down more than a minute from the previous year.

2 - Bangaluru (India)
For the second place in this beautiful ranking we return to India, and to be precise to Bangaluru, a city that boasts more than eight million inhabitants. In this case it takes a whopping 29 minutes and 10 seconds to travel just 10 km.

1 - London (England)
And at the first place we find perhaps the largest megacity in the world in terms of importance and variety of population, namely London, the capital of the United Kingdom and England. London is also first by a very wide margin even from second in the rankings. For the usual 10 km to travel, the time taken is a whopping 36 minutes and 20 seconds. It is quicker to stay at home in this case.
