From WSDOT during this Labor Day weekend:
…the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has made it even easier for smart-phone users to know before you go. A new mobile application for iPhone and Android keeps real-time traffic conditions always at hand.
We know you cant always be at your computer to check travel conditions, so we are bringing our most popular travel information to your phone, said WSDOTs Jeremy Bertrand. Were offering our most important information that allows travelers to make decisions about when and where to travel, before they go. As always, were reminding motorists to check before they get behind the wheel – dont text and drive.
With the new application, iPhone and Android users will have access to WSDOTs Web-based travel information including:
Ferries schedules, travel alerts and routes
Seattle traffic cameras
Travel times for Puget Sound highways
Canadian border wait times
To access these apps, just search for WSDOT in the Android Market or in the iTunes App Store.
For those who dont have access to the new mobile application, WSDOTs website provides travelers the information they need at: www.wsdot.wa.gov/traffic or by calling WSDOTs travel information telephone system at 5-1-1.
