511

Real-time traveler information enables the traveling public to make informed transportation choices.  511 is a three-digit dialing code designated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2000, making it easy for users to access traveler information services.  The current 511 three-digit number routes the call to the region the traveler is calling from for region-specific information.  The 511 Deployment Coalition is looking to establish a national 511 traveler information service.  With advancements in technology, many 511 systems also offer web-based travel information, multimodal planning, trip planning, ridesharing and mobile applications for Android and Apple users.
