Free INRIX Apps and Online Services Provide Instant Access to Real-Time Traffic During Olympics

With drivers already wasting over 3 days per year idle in London traffic, what can travelers expect when the world convenes in London for the largest sporting event on the planet?  Despite organizers best efforts, temporary event road closures and the Olympic Route Network combined with the 300 traffic-causing incidents that occur daily in the UK is sure to make travel unpredictable.

As the primary source of traffic and travel information on TV and radio nationwide, INRIX’s Big Data real-time traffic platform is providing consumers some useful apps that give them instant access to the fastest routes, worst delays and best modes of travel when they’re on the go including:
