In a recently released Ola survey about traffic movement in seven metros of the country, Charminar in Old City has come out as the notorious traffic bottleneck for Hyderabad.

Ola released the insights from data that it collected over the last six months on city transportation patterns across the country and highlights trends around workplace commute.

The other notorious traffic bottlenecks, which not-so-surprisingly are present only in the four metros; are Shyambazar and Park Street in Kolkata, Mumbai barely moves at Saki Naka and Powai and Bengaluru stops at Silk Board and Domlur.

Hyderabad has come out as the fifth fastest city with an average speed of 19 km/hr. As expected, Delhi topped this list sharing its spot with Pune with an average speed of 23 km/hr.

Chennai and Mumbai stand at third and fourth spots with average speeds being 21 and 21 km/hr, respectively. Bangalore and Kolkata are cities where vehicles move the slowest, with average speeds being as low as 18 and 17 km/hr respectively.

Speaking on the data, Pranay Jivrajka, COO at Ola said, “Location data is core to us at Ola, as we go about our mission of building mobility for a billion people. Hundreds of thousands of vehicles on the Ola app, help relay rich data in real-time, helping us predict demand and plan our inventory better. With data of vehicular movement from over 100 cities across the country, we can draw insightful analysis on traffic conditions urban commute patterns.

A lot of this data can also be extremely useful to solve important issues like de-congestion, urban planning and traffic management. We are working with the government at multiple levels to put this data to use over the long-term for improving the state of mobility in the cities we live in.”
