Tomtom says that, Torontonians travel times are 28% above what they should be. Really, 28% above what and compared to what? Toronto and the Greater Golden Horseshoe Planning Area (the official commuter region of Toronto) was created and defined by provincial law in 2006. It has a core city (City of Toronto) with a population of 2.8 Million and a regional commuter shed population of 9.5 million (Hamilton is part of this) and is the 4th largest by population of city regions on the whole continent, recently passing by Chicago's Region now officially named "Chicago Land". Considering the growth of the regions population, expected to be 11.5 million by 2031 and the sheer lack of transit investment that has only recently begun to been addressed, is it any surprise travel times are high!
