PennDOT and Telvent select Inrix for new 511 service

Inrix has announced a contract with Telvent to provide additional traffic information for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's forthcoming 511 service. They will provide real-time traffic data, traffic flow information and travel times for key routes on nearly 1,287km (800 miles) of roads in the Harrisburg, Scranton, Allentown, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia metropolitan areas.

One of the reasons Telvent and PennDOT selected Inrix for the project, is because they already provide traffic data in the commonwealth through the I-95 Corridor Coalition Vehicle Probe Project, which is the USA’s largest private traffic data contract. The expanded roadways, for which Inrix will provide traffic information for “511 Pennsylvania”, will also be available for monitoring and integration by neighboring states and all member agencies of the I-95 Corridor Coalition.

The Inrix Fusion engine gets its real-time data from over one million GPS-enabled taxis, service vehicles, airport shuttle services and other commercial vehicles, as well as consumer cellular GPS-based devices and traditional road sensor information. Telvent will integrate the data into “511 Pennsylvania”, which will be available to the public this summer via the internet and a free 511 telephone number.
