WGN Traffic App
From this morning's RAMP Newsletter...
WGN Radio/Chicago just launched its cool new custom traffic app, Traffix Chicago. Designed specifically for Windy City commuters, Traffix Chicago utilizes the cutting-edge traffic technology of TrafficCarma™, developed by TrafficCast Inc. of Madison WI, to synthesize real-time traffic data into personalized commuter information. The app allows users to create their own personalized traffic reports, so they can choose the best route at all times. WGN Radio VP of Programming Todd Manley said, "On-demand is everything and Traffix Chicago gives Chicagoans the data they want at the exact moment they need it." Traffix Chicago users can also share and receive tips with others in the virtual commuting community regarding accidents, construction, weather and other hazards. Traffix Chicago is now available in the Apple and Google Play stores.
