Dial 511 To Check SoCal Traffic Conditions Before Leaving the House or On the Road

Traffic jamI didn’t know this existed until today!  It’s a free travel information service that provides traffic, transit and commuter service information in Orange County, Los Angeles and Ventura counties via a toll-free phone number, 511, and website, www.Go511.com.  It can even help you plan a trip on a bus or train or find a carpool or vanpool partner.

Calling 511 directly provides you with:

  • Traffic, including freeway travel times and speeds, road construction and traffic incidents
  • Trip planning such as bus and train schedules and a trip planner that helps you find the best transit route for your trip
  • Commuter services including finding a vanpool or carpool partner or locating a park-and-ride facility near you
  • Bike information such as bike maps, how to take bikes on buses and trains and links to area airports and taxis
  • Latest weather in your neighborhood or any other city in Southern California
