A new report on the nightmare of getting to and from work in the Greater Toronto Area is being released Tuesday.
It was done for the Ontario Trillium Foundation by the University of Waterloo.
In a nutshell, the author of the report Bryan Smale says, "You may be travelling the same distance (on your commute) but it's taking you more time". It roughly 6.4-minutes more on average each day, or 27 hours over a typical work year.
Overall commute times have increased an average of 12 percent between 1994 and 2010.
As expected Toronto residents have the longest commutes in the province. On average they spend 65.6 minutes in their cars. Oshawa came in second at 63.6 minutes, and Barrie is third at 59.2 minutes.
Commute times in Ontario average at about 47 minutes, which is faster than those of commuters in Montreal and Vancouver. Both cities have averages in the low sixties.
These numbers did not factor in the new construction on the Gardiner Expressway which began Monday. Some of those closures will be in effect until December 2016.
