Manila, Philippines, MINA — Manila ranks among the worst cities in Asia when it comes to the time people spend daily on traffic gridlock, the STAR reported, citing a study commissioned by ride-sharing company Uber released Thursday.
Uber Philippines general manager Laurence Cua led a presentation revealing the results of a new Uber-commissioned survey, which showed that people in Manila spend the third longest average time being stuck in traffic every day at 66 minutes.
This puts Manila at third worst in Asia, next to Bangkok with 72 minutes and Jakarta with 68 minutes.
Following Manila are Hanoi and Kuala Lumpur, where people spend an average of 58 minutes and 53 minutes, respectively, on traffic congestion daily.
In a year, Uber said Metro Manila residents spent 402 hours stuck in traffic.
“That’s about 25 days. A tremendous loss for us,” Cua said. (T/RS5/RS!)
