The growing popularity of mobile devices able to provide on-demand, just-in-time, personalized traveler information is changing the public’s expectations for how transportation agencies communicate with customers and deliver services. Travelers who are able to access real-time data on traffic congestion, transit schedules, or transit arrivals are able to make more informed decisions and adjust travel plans “on the fly” by using online travel planners, mobile device applications, electronic signs, and other technologies. This webinar will feature speakers from a range of agencies discussing the costs and benefits of real-time transit traveler information systems; describing the challenges, successes, and future direction of traveler information systems; and sharing various uses of apps and social media to deliver traveler information.
