NOTES: Annual delay per auto commuter is calculated as the extra travel time during the year divided by the number of people who commute in private vehicles.

Very large urban areas have a population of over 3 million. Large urban areas have a population of over 1 million and less than 3 million. Medium urban areas have a population of over 500,000 and less than 1 million. Small urban areas have a population of less than 500,000.

The 2010 Urban Mobility Report methodology and data sources have been significantly revised and the total number of cities reported rose from 90 to 101; these figures are not comparable to those in past editions of this publication. This is due to methodological changes such as covering a 24 hour period instead of only peak periods.
