2020 Traffic Data

About this chart

The Town is collecting data to determine solutions to traffic flow problems during peak season. 

Banff’s threshold for the onset of congestion is considered to be approximately 24,000 vehicles per day. 

The Town’s goal is to minimize delays during peak periods, to under 15 minutes.  For live travel times, check the Traffic Dashboard.

*Note: January 28: 47:55 minute delay occurred between 14:46 and 15:12. No backed up traffic was visible on Mountain Avenue during the delay period. Cause of delay unknown.

Vehicles Per Day: The vehicle per day count is the number of vehicles entering and exiting the townsite via Norquay Road and Banff Avenue over a 24 hour period. The Vehicles Per Day reported is not representative of the total number of vehicles in town on one day; it is simply how many vehicles are moving in and out of the town over the course of one day (24 hours).

Max Delay: The difference between the maximum travel time of the day and the typical travel time during an off-peak period. It’s the maximum additional travel time it took for vehicular traffic to travel the route compared to the typical off-peak travel time. (The average travel time from a low volume day -- January 20, 2016 -- is used to represent the typical travel time).

Northbound: Based on vehicular traffic between The Rimrock Resort Hotel and Buffalo Street.
