Providing information to travelers
Informed drivers can make better decisions. Knowing how long it will take to get to their destination, why there is a backup ahead or when a construction project will start are examples of helpful information to improve the traveling experience en route. TSMO strategies can range from dynamic signs along roadway to updating messages through radio, smartphones, or web applications - all in support of helping drivers reach their destination safely and efficiently.
