For a long, I was waiting for this kind of site for Bangalore. I checked some other sites where they keep the webcamaras to give you the live traffic scene, but they could able to cover only 4-5 major locations. But now,all bangaloreans can cheer up now and know the traffic update online. This is very interactive site and tells the status of the trafficif it is slow / smooth or heavy for all directions of the bangalore North, south, East, West, Central. You can drag the map and check the status of the traffic and it is updated very frequently. So, you can plan without worries.
Also you can get the directions from one place to another. very intutive and information is provided like how much distance you have travel before taking any turn. This is on the lines of www.mapquest.com or google maps. Localized for bangaloreans.
Third beauty is, itprovides the BMTC bus details and their route information. If you know the bus number, you can get the route and the stoppages and if you don;t know the bus number, simply give your source and destination it provides you the details of the services available. Ofcourse, I think it is being linked to the BMTC web site which is providing such information for quite sometime.
One more!. you can add the map to your blogs/ websites!. All you need to do is to copy and paste the java script to your websites and you also can offer the same service to your valued visitors!
Cheer up! It's great to know about traffic before we start,so that we can plan! This is ofcourse now in Beta version.. but I believe that this soon will become a much used and more appreciated site! congratulations to the site creators!
