Traffic Cam I-93 WoburnMassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey today announced a new smart phone app that provides real time travel conditions along the Interstate 93 corridor in Massachusetts. 

The Real Time Travel App, “RTTM”, displays color-coded, current travel times on I-93 to and from Boston in real time.  Boston-based transportation IT service company, KCUS Inc., developed the app, which follows the real-time travel message board traffic management system installed along I-93 earlier this year.   The data displayed by the app is the same information displayed on the I-93 travel time message boards.

“By bus, train, subway, and now along our busiest highway corridor, we are tapping into the power of smart phone technology to provide customers with the answer to the most basic question- how long will it take to reach my destination?,” said Secretary Davey.  “This partnership with KCUS, Inc. will help commuters make informed decisions about choosing the best routes and planning a trip.”

The RTTM App in its current version allows users to select certain specified I-93 routes and view current travel times, color-coded by speeds.  The app also includes a detailed map view of each route with travel time and speeds displayed.  Future versions of the App will include additional interactive features and incorporate more routes as the system expands to other highways in the Commonwealth.

As always, MassDOT reminds drivers to avoid using their smart phones while driving and check travel conditions before they drive.

The RTTM App is currently available for both iPhone and Windows Phone platforms. IPhone users can search for and download “RTTM” in the App Store, and Windows Phone users can do the same in the Marketplace. An Android version is being developed.

An RTTM real time travel map with color-coded speed and travel time displays is now also available on the MassDOT website.
