Rio de Janeiro's record has improved in the last two years, thanks to investment in its transport infrastructure before the 2014 World Cup.

It was the world's third worst city for rush hour traffic in 2013 -- now it ranks eighth.

But drivers still have to put up with a delay of 24 minutes to their evening commute, and Rio still ranks among the top 10 most congested cities in the world.
