An increasing number of people moved into cities, for jobs and for much higher quality of life. Although, there can be some benefits such as increased employment and economic benefits.

For what purpose did you write this essay? I see you've got it posted under undergraduate admissions essays, but I suspect it is a TOEFL or IELTS essay. Please clarify.

Assuming that you are still working on basic English skills, what I'd like to see you concentrate on is verb tense. It's very important to keep your verb tense consistent, using past tense when writing of the past, present tense when writing of the present, and future tense when writing of the future.

A few corrections:

Traffic congestion is a major problem at the present day, especially during the rush hours.

The pollution of the environment is becoming more serious.

The quality of life has increased significantly.
The quality of life is increasing significantly.
