As the Orlando Population Grows, So Does the Traffic

It’s no secret the Orlando area is an extremely popular tourist destination, but over the last several years it’s also become a popular location for many new people to call home. Over the last year, Orlando’s population has expanded by over 60,000, almost enough people to fill Camping World Stadium. With all these people living and working in the city, it’s no surprise that traffic can be a nightmare. A study in 2017 stated that Orlando was 28th in the country, and 3rd in the state, on the list of the most traffic-congested cities with drivers spending an average of 34 hours, or 7 percent, of their total drive time in traffic each year.

The traffic has undoubtedly impacted your daily commute. Another study stated that during an average 30-minute commute, roughly 17 minutes of that drive was attributed to being stuck in traffic. Add to this the fact that in 2016 Florida drivers were ranked some of the worst in American, and you’ve got a recipe for a disaster! The unfortunate reality is that as the Orlando population grows, so will the traffic, meaning that these number can only be expected to increase.

With all this time being wasted on the road, having to go anywhere in the Orlando area can sometimes feel like a major chore. This feeling can be ten times worse when you’re a business owner that has employees out on the road on a daily basis. Many businesses, both big and small, have products and documents that need to be delivered to customers. Taking an employee off of an assigned task to complete a delivery can mean that you lose that employee for a good part the remainder of the day, especially if they’re unfamiliar with the fastest routes to take, what to do in case of a somewhat to do in case of a road closure, or if they get lost in the often confusing downtown area.
