So we all know Austin commute traffic is … not good but it is getting better! Actually, it’s probably more accurate to say other cities are getting worse!
We had seen reports from some companies saying Austin was one of the top 3 worst commute cities in the country, which didn’t seem to make sense when you experience other major metro areas, but Tom-Tom’s proprietary history, based on 14 trillion historical travel times, shows Austin coming in at No. 21 in the US.
In the US Tom-Tom reports that Los Angeles is the worst city and San Francisco is at No. 2.
Austin “improved” from No. 13 in 2015 and came in second among Texas cities behind Houston at No. 11 overall. Other Texas cities include San Antonio at No. 32 and Dallas-Fort Worth at No. 34.
