RE: Top 10 cities with the worst commute, global edition
Having lived in Trinidad & Tobago and travelled in London, NYC, Toronto, Vancouver, Miami, Washington, Dallas, LA, Paris, Cairo and Rome to name a few, I've come to the conclusion that all large cities suffer the same problem when it comes to traffic jams etc. Here in Port of Spain, T&T a ten minute commute at night turns out to be 1.5 hours at peak periods. One of the options being looked at is a Rapid Rail system. London, in 2003 installed a toll charge to enter the central area, backed up by cctv traffic monitoring and electronic billing to commuters entering the area. It was reported that there was an approximately 30% reduction in traffic in the first month. Maybe that should guide the rest of the world in their options.
