The new 511DFW is a leading source for road condition information for Dallas-Fort Worth trip planning needs. To save time and energy, motorists can quickly access free information on traffic and transit conditions before they begin their commute, and real-time information is available while they commute.

The service incorporates travel data from apps such Google Maps, Apple Maps and Waze as well as local cities and municipalities to provide the most up-to-date and accurate traffic information possible.

Additionally, 511DFW has a public transit trip planning feature. Here, users can set their origin and destination, as well as the date and time they want to leave. Alternatively, they can plot start and end points on the map.

Real-time traffic and transit condition information for incidents such as crashes and road construction is also available. Use the personalized My511 and the customizable map of DFW with freeway camera images and message board information for current traffic conditions. Information is also available on traffic speeds for freeways and arterials, weather alerts, bus stops and more.

The 511DFW service is easy to use. Download the 511DFW app from the App Store or Google Play on any mobile device. Visit 511dfw.org or call 511 from a mobile phone or landline in the DFW area to receive the latest traffic and transit information.
