Texas Transportation Institute Urban Mobility Study: 

Texas Transportation Institute Urban Mobility Study 68 major metropolitan areas Measures traffic volume and traffic flow Ranks congestion in several ways

Texas Transportation Institute Urban Mobility Study: 

Texas Transportation Institute Urban Mobility Study Does not take into account the widely varying degrees of transit use in these metro areas. San Francisco 24% Las Vegas 9%

STPP’s Congestion Burden Index: 

STPP’s Congestion Burden Index Uses an exposure measure (percent of workers driving to work) to take into account the portion of residents exposed to traffic congestion.

Congestion Burden Index: 

Congestion Burden Index Places with more choices have fewer workers stuck in traffic

Transportation Choice Ratio : 

Transportation Choice Ratio Measures the supply of public transportation, relative to the supply of major roads within a metro area.

Transportation Choice Ratio: 

Transportation Choice Ratio Highest – New York City 6.3 miles of hourly transit service per miles of major roadway Lowest – Columbus OH 0.09 miles of hourly transit service per mile of roadway
