TomTom Measures COVID-19’s Impact On Worldwide Traffic Volume

The Free Lance-Star reports, TomTom’s 2020 Traffic Index, a study of 416 cities in 57 countries, charts the major decline in urban volume brought on by COVID-19. “The report found that, compared with 2019, traffic dropped last year in 387 cities and increased in just 13 cities. In 2018 and 2019, traffic increased in more than half of the cities in the index, with drops in traffic accounting for a much smaller portion of the list.” The article looks at urban congestion center rankings (Moscow tops the list) and specific findings about metro DC traffic.

A TomTom news release summarizes the study results.
