NE 16 0222 IE511

Download a new, free App for IE 511, the online traffic service Inland Empire commuters are already familiar with.

The app delivers a quality on-the-go solution for rerouting their commutes around congestion. The App is available in both the iTunes Store and Android Market.

Traffic info for all of Southern California is included in the online map, which offers real-time traffic information, incident and sig alert information, cameras, and advisories posted on changeable message signs. For example, when there is snow, the new App puts chain control information right on the map. Freeway and state route closures appear as alert screens upon start up of the App. Just like any other smart phone App, the user taps the logo and is connected to the IE511 phone service from anywhere.
