Urban Mobility Report

Congestion growth continues. The 2019 Urban Mobility Report provides a comprehensive analysis of traffic conditions in 494 urban areas across the United States. The report points to the need to consider a full range of mobility improvement strategies.

There is no one quick-fix for traffic congestion. Every strategy has an important role to play.

Mobility Improvement Strategies
What we are saying about the transportation effects of COVID-19.
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic. Many cities and states had already announced closures and altered operating regulations, but the pace of change accelerated after the WHO announcement. It is an unsettling time for all of us, and the impacts of this pandemic will likely be with us for quite some time. Read what authors of the UMR are saying about the transportation effects and possible implications of this unique time in human history.
December 9, 2019 Update: While working on a similar project, researchers discovered an error in the analysis of congestion costs contained in the 2019 Urban Mobility Report. Values in the report and urban area data tables have been corrected throughout this site. These figures should be used in place of all earlier estimates.
