Utah CommuterLink Goes Mobile


The Utah Department of Transportation announced a new mobile version of CommuterLink, the state’s real-time traffic database. The new site is accessible from any Web-enabled handset or PDA at the same URL as the desktop site (www.commuterlink.utah.gov).

The mobile version of the site offers snapshots from over 400 traffic cameras, current traffic incidents, variable message signs, and current road conditions, optimized for faster delivery on smaller cell phone screens.

Usablenet is powering the new mobile CommuterLink site; Usablenet promises that it can take any company’s existing Web site and extend it to mobile devices worldwide in less than six weeks, with no existing client IT or Web design resources required.
