If you are in Mumbai, you cannot escape the traffic of the city. And this traffic gets all the more frustrating when you have to spend more time on roads than usual.

According to a recent global study, commuters in Mumbai spend 65% more time on roads during peak hours than when there’s no congestion.

This means that if your usual commutation time is 1 hour, then you’ll take 1 hour 40 minutes during the peak hours. 


Mumbai also ranked first in the list of top 5 congested cities in the world in 2018, followed by Bogota, Lima and New Delhi.
