Baguio City can be reached from the lowland areas via three (3) national roads namely; Quirino Highway better known as Naguilian Road, Kennon Road and Marcos Highway.  It can also be reached from the northern highland areas via the Ambuclao Road and the Halsema Highway.

These highways and major arteries lead centrally to the Central Business District (CBD) which makes the traffic circulation system very inefficient.

The concentration of urban services at the Central Business District is the major cause of traffic congestion.  This problem is aggravated by uncontrolled parking within the Central Business District and the lack of designated parking areas.

According to the Land Transportation Office, there are a total 17,210 vehicles registered in the city in 1996, 68.94% of these total are private cars, while 27.43% are public utility vehicles.  The remaining 3.63% are government-owned.  Many public utility vehicles are in poor condition and contribute to air pollution.
