Beijing failed to meet its targets for easing road congestion in 2013, with commuters experiencing more traffic jams across the city.

During rush hours on workdays last year, the average duration of traffic jams was one hour and 55 minutes, a rise of 4.2 percent from the hour-and-a-half recorded in 2012, according to a report by the Beijing Commission of Transport.

The report, which was released on Monday, said that in the main urban area, there were 27.79 million daily journeys. This included 9.09 million trips by private car, 7.06 million trips by bus and 5.72 million by subway.
