Travel Time Surveys


Traffic Data and Control have successfully undertaken over 20 major travel time programs in the past 4 years.  We use Garmin GPS units and Map Source programs which enabled us to provide accurate and informative data, including congestion hot spot identification, signal coordination issues and peak travel time profiles.
