Private sector and government officials are in the process of designing a new “FAST” regional transit network for the Triangle region but a new study says RTP area commuters already have one of the best commutes in the US. No. 3, in fact, says Teletrac Navman, a provider of fleet management and other transportation related software and services. While Triangle commuters – at least in the days before COVID-19 led to a dramatic easing of traffic conditions with many people working at home or having lost jobs – might have a difficult time believing traffic really isn’t that bad (in context), Teletrac Navman says the data it studied means the region ranks well in terms of time spent commuting, traffic fatalities, and time lost to driving to and from work. Only Salt Lake City and Las Vegas had better scores than Raleigh-Durham in the study which measured the top 50 metro areas across the country based on a variety of metrics. Charlotte, meanwhile, ranked 22nd.
