NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — More than 100,000 users have downloaded the Tennessee Department of Transportation's SmartWay app since its launch in December. The app provides up-to-the-minute customized traffic information for Tennessee drivers.
TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said in a news release that the real time traffic information it provides helps motorists avoid delays and also helps reduce congestion on the state's roadways.
The app allows users to customize the view to show things like current traffic speeds, accidents, construction delays and road conditions. A "near me" screen allows users to see all roadway events near their current locations. The "notifications" screen allows motorists to be informed of problems on routes they typically take.
The app is free and available for download in the Apple App Store and the Play Store for Android.
