Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has launched a modernized, mobile-friendly Arizona 511 Traveler Information System website and phone line. The new system uses the latest technology to provide a customized experience with real-time updates from ADOT, the premier source of information on Arizona’s highway system.
The new AZ511.gov website allows users to save their favorite routes and most used traffic cameras. Before leaving for a destination, drivers can log onto AZ511.gov to view incidents along their route, get estimated travel times to their destination and receive alternate route suggestions. Travelers may set up text or email alerts for their routes. Users can also call the 511 phone line to hear personalized updates. The 511 phone line is now easier to navigate and voice recognition has been upgraded.

The Mobility on Demand (MOD) Alliance, an initiative of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America), is outlining its 2019 plans to coordinate and develop seamless mobility in the United States.
ITS America created the MOD Alliance to help determine what the future of mobility should look like. Its charge is to facilitate a system in which consumers can research, book and pay for daily trips – no matter what form of transportation – on one integrated platform.
To kick off this year’s activities, the MOD Alliance hosted an event on Capitol Hill yesterday featuring city, transit, and private sector leaders who talked about the benefits of mobility on demand, shared examples of existing and future MOD initiatives – including public-private partnerships – and discussed potential roles for Congress and federal agencies.
More details on the kick off in the press release.
More details on MOD can be found on MD website.
