Travelers - a traffic management application now available in the app store for iPhone and iPad devices - is the City of Seattle's newest native iOS application to reach our increasingly mobile customer base. The application provides commuters with a rich set of features to help them navigate their commutes and travels with access to traffic congestion, traffic cameras, travel times, push notification alerts, bookmarks, and more. Here are some of the main features available to users:
View traffic congestion through out the city using Apple's rich mapping interface with intuitive multitouch gestures and GPS location services.
Quick access to SDOT's traffic cameras through out the city, many of which include live video feeds.
Quick access to highly accurate travel time on the most frequently traveled city commuter routes with up to the minute estimates.
Register for push notifications to receive accident alerts and adjust your travel routes to avoid delays.
Create bookmarks to the specific Travel Time Routes and Camera Feeds that are most important to you.
Runs on iPad, iPhone, and iTouch devices running iOS 5.1 and higher.
What's New in Version 1.3.0
Fixed location services bug in iOS 8. Added 22 new cameras.
Collects most of the traffic info you need now.
Combines SDOT's workorders cameras and traffic alerts in one place. A handy overview before setting out.
Suggested addition: scheduled traffic impacters (read sports and similar attractive nuisances)--this might be here already...I just won't notice until we have weekday games.
UI improvement: don't recenter the current location every time the user returns to the traffic map page; this is annoying when browsing around events and icons farther from home. Instead provide a button to recenter on current location.
It's a great job so far...I know how hard it is to pull all this data together!
OK for Seattle - only
This app is good as long as you don't travel outside the city. Does not include traffic cameras for Bellevue or other east side traffic. Search for Wash DOT traffic to get the whole state in one app.
