This paper presents an algorithm for the automated analysis and evaluation of vehicular traffic congestion in urban areas. The proposed approach is based on the concept of bus as a probe and makes use of GPS-generated data provided by a local transit bus tracking system. Archived GPS pulses are analyzed offline to extract valuable indices related to general urban traffic characteristics and aimed at generating a detailed view of the urban roads congestion. This information is useful both for policy makers, to effectively address the management of sustainable mobility in urban areas, and for citizens, to acquire awareness about congestion times and location zones. The presented algorithm is applied to a part of the urban road network of the municipality of Bari (Italy).
