Because, aviously…

One of the biggest issues of driving in a big city is traffic.

There are always delays, and you are constantly fighting to find the shortest route, with the least amount of accidents, just to get to/from home to work.

Most cities have traffic reports on the radio, that allows you every 10 minutes or so to get a glimpse at what might await your journey.

The Port Authority of NY and NJ (PANY/NJ) have an app that helps (some) NYC travelers cross any of their bridges or tunnels, including the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln & Holland Tunnels.

Features include:

  • Notifications for your crossings at specific times, such as before you head out every day
  • Current Delays at crossings / Current speed that traffic is moving
  • Planned work/construction
  • Truck restrictions

I just wish the MTA and NYC DOT made these available for the East River crossings…like the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel and the Brooklyn/Manhattan Bridges…because it’s impossible to predict when they’ll just close a tube for the sake of it.

The CrossingTime app is available on Android and iOS.
