INRIX Traffic covers more roads than any other traffic app providing real-time traffic information that extends beyond major highways and interstates covering more than 1.1 million miles across North America and Europe.

Based on the observed patterns, INRIX claims that INRIX Traffic app owners spend one less day a year idle in traffic. The app uniquely helps drivers reduce the time they spend in traffic through a better understanding of current and future traffic conditions. This ofcourse would help in fuel and money savings as well as reduce vehicle’s carbon emissions. Predictive traffic information also helps you better plan your trips.

Unlike other apps that rely solely on road sensor data or crowd-sourced information from drivers that’s often old and inaccurate, INRIX analyzes data from more than 400 public and private sources. The unique app factors the impact of school schedules, sporting events, and convention schedules as well as real-time reports of accidents, construction, and other traffic-impacting events.

Interestingly, the sophisticated statistical analysis techniques used by INRIX Traffic Services were originally developed by Microsoft Research.

INRIX Traffic is a free, ad-free app. In return for the benefit of the real-time traffic information, INRIX Traffic owners become a part of our crowd-sourced network passively contributing real-time traffic information. The app is available in 9 countries including the U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, and Belgium.
