"The 2004 Urban Mobility Report, published by the Texas Transportation Institute, shows traffic congestion growing across the nation in cities of all sizes, consuming more hours of the day, and affecting more travelers and shipments of goods than ever before.

The report also measures the mobility improving contributions of public transportation service and techniques to improve roadway operating efficiency. These and other techniques can be used – nationally and locally – to more successfully reverse a national trend of ever-worsening traffic problems. Researchers say that the problem has grown too rapidly and is too complex to be addressed by a single solution. In addition to new road and public transportation projects, they say we need more efficient use of current roadways, better demand management, and a diverse set of land use options."

[The complete report is available online along with "National Congestion Tables" and "Congestion Data for Your City."]
