Inclusion of Park and Rides, Weigh Stations and Rest Areas One of the additional features on the map tool-thanks to customer feedback-is the opportunity to mark park and rides, weigh stations and rest areas along personalized routes.
Dynamic Routing The routing system will allow users to determine multiple routes to their destination including public transit with ticket information.
Driving and Transit Trip Planning Regardless if users take public transportation or drive their own vehicles, the mapping tool can now plan either mode of transportation based off of real-time information and personal routes.
Personalized Camera Snapshots This tool can view traffic in real time, and includes a customizable camera option that can save feeds for personal routes and appears any time the map tool is in use.
