Commute Better: SkedGo and Main Roads Launch Traffic Alert App to Enhance Driver Experience

Media Release

Perth, Australia February 15, 2024 – SkedGo, a leading, global innovator in mobility solutions, announces the launch of a ground-breaking traffic alert app designed to empower drivers with real-time information about disruptions in their journey. This cutting-edge application is set to redefine how drivers navigate and plan their journeys.

The Traffic-ALT app distinguishes itself by providing users with real-time data on traffic disruptions, including congestion, accidents, roadworks, and special events. Built for and powered by data sourced from Main Roads Western Australia, the app employs geofencing technology to alert drivers to disruptions as they approach, ensuring a seamless and informed driving experience.

Unlike traditional navigation apps, Traffic-ALT does not replace existing mapping solutions. Instead, it complements them, providing users with the ability to choose their own path based on real-time disruption alerts.

The app allows users to preview disruptions on the map before their journey, providing details such as delays, travel times, and the nature of the disruption. It operates during the drive, delivering audio and visual notifications for disruptions in the user’s specific direction of travel, enhancing situational awareness.

The app is available on both App Store and Google Play

“The implementation of our Real Time Virtual Messaging Application known as Traffic-ALT seamlessly connects Main Roads with road users, offering instant updates on both scheduled and unforeseen events. Enhancing the driver’s journey, every notification empowers road users with timely information for a more seamless travel experience.”

Mehdi Langroudi, Executive Director Network Operations, Main Roads Western Australia
