TomTom has announced that its live traffic and travel information portal TomTom City has been extended to 50 cities worldwide, including Manchester and Glasgow.
It says the portal “showcases the extensive range of traffic information available on a city by city basis,” and “provides a platform to connect traffic authorities, businesses and drivers to jointly manage sustainable and efficient mobility.”
TomTom City launched in April this year with 25 cities, including London. The company says it has proved popular, with Istanbul receiving the most visits overall. It adds that the addition of 25 further cities means that over 30 million more people can now benefit from the service from as far afield as Johannesburg to Oslo to Melbourne.
Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Head of Traffic at TomTom, said, “It’s great to extend TomTom City to a further 25 cities, giving even more drivers and traffic managers essential insights into the real-time traffic situation. This is a further step in our mission to help reduce delays for all drivers and paving the way to smarter cities. We are creating services that will help cities and connected cars work together to optimise the road network for everyone.”
