2017 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.

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.

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