Conn. DOT Offers New Apps

PHONES-TEXTINGWETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) — The Connecticut Department of Transportation is offering travelers a way to check rail and highway advisories on their smartphones.

The agency is offering a series of apps on its website. The apps offers traffic advisories and access to traffic cameras and quick links to Metro-North and Amtrak rail services. They also include scheduling and fare information, bus schedules and route, information about public transportation and more.

DOT Commissioner James Redeker (REHD’-eh-kur) said the apps give the agency another way to communicate with travelers and get them the best information quickly.

The apps can be installed from the DOT’s at www.ct.gov/dot . They are available for both iPhone and Android smartphones and prices range from free to $2.99.
