Hong Kong TD launches eRouting app

The Hong Kong Transport Department (TD) has launched a free smartphone application, ‘Hong Kong eRouting’, which provides the public with point-to-point driving route and navigation services that incorporates real-time traffic information. The eRouting app is now available for Apple and Android phones, with tablet versions of the service planned for launching in mid-2013. For the convenience of users, HK eRouting allows multiple input methods: map-based, SMS text message, categorized locations, current location and bookmarks. It also provides selectable route choice preferences to facilitate route searching, which includes the shortest travel time, the shortest travel distance or the lowest toll, using private car fares for comparison purposes.

Search results are displayed on a map, with detailed route information, the estimated travel time, the distance and road tolls. Real-time traffic information, including CCTV snapshots, special traffic/transport arrangements and special traffic news along the route are also provided on the same interface. Users may store the most used routes and locations for later retrieval. The eRouting app provides access to a wealth of real-time traffic information on all major routes in Hong Kong, including the road situation and journey time displayed on speed map panels, the cross-harbor journey time, traffic speed maps and CCTV snapshots. Other useful information, such as locations of petrol stations, no-stopping restriction zones and on-street parking spaces, are also obtainable through the service.
