Transportation Information and Data

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 participated in the 2006 Travel Time Study project as well as the 2008 and 2010 studies.

Data collection

All survey data are collected:

  • Using GPS (Global Positioning System)-equipped passenger vehicles travelling at average traffic flow speed.
