How many times have you been in your car on the way to work or to drop the kids off at school, only to find out that your road ahead has a delay which could have been avoided? Wouldn’t you like to have known before you started your journey that a different route of your choice or alternative mode of travel would have cut out delays and got you to your destination quicker?
The everydaytravelapp® aims to inform and be informed. Input from users complements the validated sources of data to give a more complete picture of the travel network, so your interaction with the app keeps it as current and up-to-date as possible. It provides an intelligent and adaptable day-to-day utility that gives the most accurate travel updates available throughout the county.
The app has been developed to provide accurate, timely travel information about your regular journeys. It takes trusted sources of information and sends it directly to your smart device, providing relevant data specific for every individual journey that you have uploaded, ensuring you get the information you need to make an informed decision about every trip as quick and easy as possible.
Essex County Council has recently submitted a bid to the Department for Transport, for Funding for Innovation: Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (refer to Document section below) based upon further development of the everydaytravelapp® and are awaiting the outcome.
