Travel Midwest is the official mobile app of the popular travel website. It provides a traffic map for the Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison and Rockford metropolitan areas, the Quad Cities, northwest Indiana, and southwestern Michigan. Map layers include Travel Times, Expressway Congestion, Arterial Congestion, Expressway Construction, Arterial Construction, Incidents, Weather, and Cameras. Select from preset maps, center the map on your current position, or have the app track your position in real-time as you travel using the "Follow Me" feature. Move and zoom the map anywhere in the coverage area, tap on the map to get details about incidents, travel times, construction, or to view camera images. View various notices and reports from different geographic areas. Optionally participate in the Connected Vehicles initiative by allowing the app to transmit your location to help us better compute congestion and travel times. An indispensable app for commuters and all regional travelers.

I have used web site for many years, recently installed app and love it. Look forward to new releases. Please keep up the good work!

Good app that could be better


This app is a vital resource for determining travel times. Thanks for updating it for the iPhone X.

Not perfect but...


Very good. I'm a long time user of the website. Downloaded the app yesterday with an update today. I only use the congestion and travel times layers. I like being able to choose maps instead of pinchzooming, which also works. My only significant issue is the screen I have to click through every time I open attesting to not using the app while driving. Really? Wouldn't once, like when I agreed to the T&C do? Slow refresh rate may also be an issue. I'm on wifi now and it's quick.
