The Metro Manila Traffic Navigator is the country’s first ever digitized traffic information system that lets motorists and commuters view the traffic situation around the Metro in real-time over the Internet. Conceived in line with President Aquino’s call for Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects, the traffic navigator empowers people with information and technology and gives them an instant control — not just over traffic, but over their hours and lives.
At the Traffic Navigator’s media launch, TV5 also announced the future release of InterAksyon.com’s iPad and iPhone app, which will come bundled with easy, instant access to the Traffic Navigator.
Following the release of its public beta version last June 29, at least 6,000 drivers and commuters have been using the TV5-MMDA Traffic Navigator everyday.
Presented in a graphically logical and pleasing format, the Traffic Navigator represents the major roads similar to how subway routes are presented in New York, London and Tokyo; and reports the traffic situation in fast and very simple manner.
Moving forward, the Metro Manila Traffic Navigator will soon cater to other motorists’ concerns and will cover more roads in its monitoring. Other tools and features relevant to every Filipino on the road are already in the works.
