Travel Time Studies

A travel time study is a survey conducted by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.

Travel time studies collect samples of travel time, speed and delay on provincial highways, expressways, HOV lanes and selected main roads in the GTA and surrounding areas.

A travel time study:

  • Lets us compare current traffic conditions to past conditions.
  • Shows us which roadways and areas are the most congested.
  • Shows us road improvement needs such as traffic signals timing adjustments

The Region of Peel has participated in the Travel Time Study every two years since 2006.
