Ottawa, October 22, 2012. GreenOwl Mobile is pleased to announce that its Traffic Alert Canada app, which has been running with great success in Toronto and Vancouver, is now available in Ottawa. Traffic Alert is a free iPhone, Android and BlackBerry app that constantly monitors traffic on a driver’s route and provides audio and visual alerts to traffic situations ahead. It also allows users to easily and safely notify other users of new incidents as they happen.
“Let’s face it, traffic is stressful and getting traffic updates on the radio isn’t always timely or relevant,” commented Matt Man, President, GreenOwl Mobile. “Traffic Alert is designed for drivers seeking to avoid bad traffic and major incidents on their commute. It works by providing real-time traffic info on your phone, personalized to your route. And because it’s audio-based, it’s a safer alternative to the other options out there.”
The service relies on users passively and actively reporting on traffic conditions. Whenever a user is stuck in traffic, their traffic speed information is automatically passed onto the entire user network. Users can also report traffic incidents with a one-touch call to a voicemail system, which then gets passed onto other drivers. In addition to user reports, traffic incident information is gathered from all publically available sources giving Traffic Alert the best incident information available on a user’s route.
Traffic Alert users can find and save their usual commuting routes using the built-in RouteFinder. They can then check these routes, or generic community favourite routes, before they drive and monitor changes in real-time as they drive. It’s like having a personal traffic helicopter looking out for you while you drive.
Join the Traffic Alert commuting community today and get better, safer traffic information on drive. Go to www.greenowlmobile.com to download the app or look for Traffic Alert Canada in iPhone and Android app stores, or Traffic Alert Ottawa in the BlackBerry App World.
