San Francisco sees some of the heaviest traffic in the U.S. In fact, the Bay Area has the 7th worst traffic in the nation, according to INRIX, a company that provides location-based data and analytics.

INRIX determined that San Francisco commuters spent an average of 97 hours sitting in traffic in 2019 (and other studies estimate that time is even greater). If you’re one of the many commuters in the city, then you might be wondering what’s the worst time to get on the road (and get stuck in the dreaded San Francisco traffic).

The good news is that it’s not unpredictable! We’ve managed to pin down some of the worst traffic times in San Francisco. The bad news is that you might not be able to completely avoid these congested times of the day.
