Forbes recently ranked Boston #10 on a list of the US cities with the worst traffic congestion. Here is what Forbes had to say:
10. Boston, Mass.
Annual delays per traveler: 46 hours
Commutes longer than 45 minutes: 20%
Boston's western suburbs, to which many of the city's middle- and upper-class families moved in the last 50 years, lack well-designed highways. As a result, drivers spend a lot of time on city streets, smaller byways and capillary roads on their way to Interstate 95. For residents of the city, the T provides train access across Boston.
Totally not shocking!!
